12oz short bottle served in a pint glass
Black in the glass with ruby highlights when held up to a light, nice thick billowy tan head to start that falls to a thin film and throws a bunch of lace, sure it isn't the nitro stout but it looks good. The smell is roasty burnt grain, coffee and dark chocolate with some esters. The taste starts slightly sweet and grainy a touch of molasses, the sweetness moves aside as hop and burnt malt bitterness move quickly to the forefront. The finish is dry and really quite bitter almost puckering, overall mouthfeel is pretty full and smooth. Great session beer much better than the nitro version which tastes really watered down when compared to the great coffee, chocolate and bitter flavors that the original has.
