Reviewed from notes. Had on nitro-tap at CCB tasting room. Served in a snifter.
A: Very dark rich brown, large thick creamy brown head. Standard nitro movement in the snifter, and quite opaque.
S: Coffee, creamy, light chocolate, lactose sweetness.
T: Follows the nose. A nice medium-roast coffee flavor that isn't overly bitter, with creamy lactose and milk chocolate following that. I wouldn't say it's a particularly complex flavor, but wow is it tasty.
M: Insanely creamy - both the milkiness and the nitro serving contributing here - and velvety smooth. Moderate alcohol presence, although for the listed ABV it's quite well-hidden. I would give the mouthfeel a 6 out of 5 if I could.
O: This was incredible on nitro. I didn't have the chance to try the regular carbonated version, but the flavors were amazing so I don't think it would suffer any fall-off. This is at least one of my top five favorite non-barrel aged stouts I've ever had.
Serving type: nitro-tap
