16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body with two inches of firm, matte beige foam, leaving coating lace on the descent.

Smell: Hidden beneath a cap of dense foam, meager whispers of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and hops struggle to escape.

Taste: With my mouth choked by foam wrought from the nitro-tap, I get little more than hints of roasted grain, faint dark chocolate, and leafy, lightly bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Creamy, nitro-infused mouthfeel.

Overall: With each passing year, I grow more disillusioned with the whole nitro-tap gimmick.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Served on nitro-tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh, NC

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown (almost black) in color with some light amounts of gentle carbonation near the surface and a light amount of very dark amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with just a hint of chocolate.

T: Similar to the smell, this beer has a light to moderate flavor of roasted malts upfront with some very light notes of baker's chocolate. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fade rather quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy, almost slightly airy. Moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Definitely another enjoyable easy drinking stout on a night of finding them... This one has a slightly richer mouthfeel for the low ABV and just a touch more dryness than some of the others sampled. Easy to drink and definitely one to have again if you come across it.
