look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 15 oz nitro can into a pint glass.
A - I love the nitro beers and what happens with them in the pour. Volcanic type reaction till the carbonation all reaches the top of the glass. Anyways, Ruby like color, dark but still see through. Nice 2 fingers of extremely creamy head. Excellent lacing on the glass.
S - Mild toasty malts, slight coffee hints. Very mild hint of bittersweet chocolate.
T - Toasty malts hit you up front with some bitter coffee notes and a tad bit of the bittersweet chocolate in the back end. Not to intense on the flavors.
M - Extremely creamy, smooth, fairly light with decent carbonation. Extremely nice feel to this. Almost a velvety feel.
O - I like this but I would usually take something else if it were available. However, is very smooth and easy drinking. Good session beer given the ABV and drink-ability. For the price there are some far better stouts out there. If you want to try this one make sure you get the nitro version or on tap.
Serving type: nitro-can

3.2/5 rDev -8%

Pours darn near opaque with only a slight hue around the edge when held to the light. The head is mocha colored creamy foam and it lasts and leaves grogeous lace. This beer looks amazing. The nose a mild bit of roasted malt, it promises something grainy and maybe a bit bitter. A light sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is where this one loses me. Weak flavors thin body. Watery and thin although soft and creamy. Weak coffee, roast that had potential but fizzled in it's lackluster approach to the palate. There's not really much alcohol in this one so it' wasn't
planning on being strong. And it's not. Earthy, hints of char light smooth and finishes slightly with a faint bitterness from roast . It had a slight imperfection in the mouthfeel as it was actually grainy at the back palate. An actual sensation of something faintly gritty.
