4.14/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

22oz bottle at 41 F poured into two big snifters. No bottle code or date that I know of. Coming off a ten day trip to Japan with few opportunities for beer beyond Kirin or Asahi, so maybe some bias...

Pours black, with a smallish dark tan head. Lots of fine, slow carbonation. Smell is richly chocolatey, very nutty.

Taste is super nutty and very chocolatey. The chocolate seems surprisingly strong. I like it.

Mouthfeel is dry and gritty. Overall, very good.

Serving type: bottle

On Nitro at the Brewpub on 3.25.13

A - Served a Dark brown with a silky cap of light tan nitro head that just sits there.

S - Smell is dominated by the hazelnuts and a bit of roasted malt and dark chocolate.

T - Again lots of hazelnut, but more of the roasted malt, oatmeal, and pepper come through. Very tasty, almost like a dessert in a glass.

D - Silky smooth body due to the nitro and a thick heavy body.

O - I am not usually a fan of these infused, additional item, etc. nitro taps, but this one really worked.

Serving type: nitro-tap
