It is a deep ruby brown and almost no light gets through. There is a nice thick and creamy tan head that lasts throughout and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is on the mild side, with some nice dark fruits and a little earthy angle to it. The taste is big roast malt, with light hints of burnt sugar and again a little earthy hops feeling. There is a great silky quality to the body with a little tingle on the tongue from the alcohol. A great use of nitro to make a really good beer even better.

Serving type: nitro-can

On nitro tap at Rattle n Hum. Wasn't sure what to expect & was rewarded with a serious pint of almost chewable, mildly coffee flavored liquid that is smooth as silk on the tongue & just as easy on the tastebuds. Where's the bitter? For that close a balance, it plays tag among the tastebuds. Standard long lasting, creamy head that gives way to some serious lacing.

The 8% is dangerously absent in the taste, which could lead to errors in judgement. Be forewarned.

16oz nitro can poured into a pint glass.

A: Beautiful cascading bubbles effect, a la Guinness. Very dark brown. Good clarity. And inch and a half of creamy tan head retains wonderfully. Thick sheets of lacing.

S: malty sweet with aromas of chocolate sauce, brown bread, blackstrap molasses, and Bernard even maple. Candied fruits and plum pudding are very apparent as well. Hint of woody smoke tucked deeply within.

T: Milk chocolate and nutty cocoa are the dominant flavors. Hints of cola and brown bread. Concord grape and juicy plum. Faint kiss of alcohol. Sweet throughout, though that slight hint of woody smoke dries it out ever so slightly on the finish.

M: Medium thick body with a good heft. Nitro treatment gives it the expected creamy-smooth feel.

O: I'm generally not a fan of nitro beers. It makes for a good mouthfeel, but I feel that it dumbs a beer down in the flavor department. In this case, it smooths Old Chub over in all the right areas. Sweetness is played up a bit, but the smokey edge is rounded off. I actually prefer this to the carbonated version. It's just that much more drinkable.
