On Nitro-tap at The Blue Dog, Chalfont, PA.

The first thing that jumped out with this was the incredible creaminess with the nitrogen.

The flavor was a nice mix of hops and malt. There were roasted malt flavors and some coffee bitterness.

The mouth feel is silky and was one of the best characteristics of this beer. It resembled Guiness, only way better. Not quite as dry, this had more sweetness that was nice.

The drinkability was way above average. It could almost be a session beer, but with 6.4%, I shouldn't have more than 3.

Ballast Point has been really consistent with quality beers. This one continues that trend.

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap at the Ballast Point Tasting Room and Kitchen.

Opaque brown-black with a very durable, creamy beige head. Plenty of spotty lacing.

Feel: light-medium body that seems too thin; Medium carbonation.

Smell: Moderately strong mix of dark roasted malts. Hints of dark fruits. Approaches 4.

Taste: inferior to the aroma, partly because it is less complex and fruity than hoped but also due to some burnt grain qualities, especially in the aftertaste.

O: a bit disappointing, but only because this brewery has so many great beers.

Serving type: nitro-tap
