3.23/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 14.9oz nitro can

Pours a nice dark amber color with a 2 finger creamy head. Almost what I would call a secondary head slowing moving to the top of the glass made of millions of tiny bubbles which forms a nice layer of foam that lasts a long time. There is also some very nice lacing on this one too.

The aroma is nice. There is a light sweetness to it, also some malts and a slight aroma of yeast. Hints of hops as well.

Taste is pretty good. Very malty, some caramel flavors and bread, almost like toast. There is some nice bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth, with almost no carbonation at all. Has a watery feel to it. The mouthfeel pretty much killed this one for me.

Overall not bad. Might want to try it on tap or in a bottle sometime, I am not a real big fan of nitro cans.

Serving type: nitro-can
