On nitro-tap in the tasting room.

Nice cascading carbonation from the nitro pour. The only downside was waiting a few minutes for it to set.

The smell is faint hints of milk chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt.

The chocolate has a light bakers chocolate bitterness to it. There's a mild sweetness from the lactose. The roast is almost a woody smoke, but faint.

The mouthfeel on nitro knocks it out of the park. I imagine this is smooth from the bottle and nitro compounds that. It's amazingly smooth, soft, and velvety.

I'm looking forward to trying this out of the bottle.

Edit:
Tried out of the bottle. It's still a fantastic and extremely drinkable milk stout but the mouthfeel is a bit less smooth, for obvious reasons. It has the same flavors but the sweetness tastes a little more like artificial sweetener than I remembered it being on nitro. Out of a bottle I give this 4s across the board.

Draft at Devil's Den in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.

Complex malt aroma with a nice balance of sweet and roasted notes.  Hints of sweet and dark chocolate, oatmeal, coffee bean and toffee along with lactic sugar/cream.  Smells like a chocolate milk shake.

Slightly chewy medium body with a nice balance of sweet and roasted chocolate malt along with earthy, bitter hops and lactic sugar.  Really chocolate-y with hints of caramel, toffee and nut.  Some roasted dark malt notes and hops contribute bitterness.  Hits of oatmeal, coffee and toast but the silky chocolate and lactic sugar notes dominate making this beer silky smooth and easy to drink.

Poured a deep black with a tan head that dissipated fast. In its defense I was outside in the rain enjoying this during Philly Beer Week. so I can forgive the head.

The aroma offers a ton of milk chocolate. The flavor is the same, deep milk chocolate notes with a bit of carbonation and a very soft mouthfeel. Very drinkable, an easy drinker, but also a great desert beer. Wonderful finish and a great intro to a new brewery that I have never previously tried.

This was definitely one of the top two beers I tried at that evenings event. I am now organizing a trip to Chicago so I can visit the brewery and indulge in some more.
