look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours opaque brow, with some light on the edges showing some red and brown. A big mocha head leaves tons of lacing.

Smell is sweet dark bread, chocolate and vanilla, roasted malts and a light fruitiness.

Taste is similar, sweet and roasted malt, chocolate, a hint of vanilla, almost rich.

Texture is smooth and light, yet still almost creamy. The beer leans from medium to light bodied in thickness, and is very easy to drink.

They got a lot of good texture and flavor into an almost thin beer. Pretty amazing. The sweetness is a nice break from the smoky char I was expecting, and if it were thicker, I would call it a stout. Very good drinking, especially for 8%.

DOA

On nitro-tap at Hangar 24
1/24/11
Last beer of the tasting / was a special offering at the brewery

A - Big frothy creamy tan head, medium dark brown in color altogether

S - Big nose of chocolate, sweet malts, very present roast scent, vanilla still present

T - Big chocolate, light coffee with a roasted finish.

M - Creamy, rich but not overwhelming, but with a nice clean finish

D - The Nitro-tap did a nice benefit to the taste and feel of this beer - it was a good offering regularly on tap, and the nitro kicked this one up a notch - definitely the best beer I had the entire visit to Hangar 24. It calmed the roasted nature down a little and enhanced the chocolate flavor, while giving a nice creamy mouth-feel and made this even easier to have a couple than it already was.

On nitro @ Hanger 24

Look: Black with red rings and a 1 inch head with exceptional retention and some circular lacing. Exactly what a beer on nitro should look like. Fantastic

Smell: Cocoa nibs and vanilla

Taste: Cocoa nibs upfront and very nice touch of coffee and vanilla on the back end

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body and mild carbonation and exceptionally creamy

Overall: Due to it being on nitro the look and feel of the beer are exceptional with the nose and taste being good. So I would say that drinking this beer on nitro is the way to go but still overall its a good beer.

Serving type: nitro-tap
