look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into an Irish pint glass.

Look: Dark ruby mahogany body with a cream colored head that's as thick and foamy as I'd hoped for in a nitro can. Thick sheets of lacing.

Aroma: A really sweet, rich woody aroma with some maple syrup notes.

Taste: Malty, syrupy, spicy. There's a good woody body about it as well.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth.

Overall: This is simply delicious, and the nitro can has everything to do with it.

Pours a very dark brown with a huge, frothy foam head. Excellent retention. No visible lacing at this point. Nose is nutty, with some lightly roasted chocolate and coffee. Tastes of creamy goodness. The nuttiness is still there, but now there is the presence of very sweet caramel malts and dark fruits. Very sweet, has a smoky taste as well. The creamy sweetness is definitely my favorite thing about this beer. Despite the higher ABV, the sweetness and creaminess makes this one rather easy to drink, although it does leave the mouth a bit dry. Honestly, I'm not super well versed in nitros or Wee Heavy, but this is an okay beer. Not the greatest for either style.
