Quick review scribbled at the bar, didn't know this was going to be around, they tapped out on Cigar City's Minaret right when I ordered it so this was the replacement, and what a replacement!
A: Jet black, thick, rich tan head that lasts and lasts and lasts.
S: Roasty malts, coffee.
T: YUM. Imagine having a bowl of Chocolate Rice Krispies, and instead of milk you used cold brew coffee with a touch of cream. Pretty much exactly there.
M: Super creamy, rich, a little chewy, with a deliciously welcome coffeelike astringency. Amazing, I just wish it was a TINY bit fuller, it should feel like I would get a tired jaw from chewing on this beer.
O: Easily one of the finest nitro beers I've had, one of the best Irish dry stouts, beats the everloving shit out of Guinness, I want this beer to be available year round, across the planet so people can use this as a marker for the style.

A - stars out beautiful with the nitro. Settles to perfectly balck with finger of tan, silky head.
S - roasty malts and chocolate. Some disntant espresso. Sweet and bitter both hit the nose. Awesome here.
T - silky chocolate and espresso both hit the palate so smoothly. Bitterness is balanced so nicely with sweetness.
M - where do I start. Silky. Smooth. Velvety. Drinkable is an understatement. Awesome.
O - man this is killer. Dry Irish Stouts aren't usually knocking my socks off, but this absolutely does.

Pours black with a half-finger of creamy tan head frozen in time. It has a milk chocolate smell with toasted oats, pecans, and cream, but I only pick up on those flavors if I stretch myself -- it's all rather subtle. The taste brings cocoa powder, coffee, burnt toast, and bitter hops. It goes down silky smooth with a super dry finish and is on the lighter side of medium in body.
