Pretty to look at, with a creamy dark color, but the head was almost missing. Maybe I just sucked at pouring it (which I will admit, happens sometimes). It was very creamy, very true to a milk stout. It had an interestingly creamy nose, which I haven't experienced much of. Milky nose sounds almost like an oxymoron but it's the best I can do to describe the nasal appeal. Creamy air. (384 characters)

Parallel 49 Brewing's 'N2' a Nitrogenated/Milk Stout @ 5.0% , served from a 6pack of 341 ml bottles purchased for $14
(heard some horror stories regarding the first attempts at making this brew)

A-big noise on the opening of the bottle , pour is cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass with some crimson red peeking thru a small tan head that is leaving a fine lace film along the pint after every sip

S-sweet malts

T-sweet tasting malted milk at first , dry blah finish

MF-lots of carbonation , weak medium body , seems to go flat quickly

Ov-definately not as sweet as 'Ugly Sweater' , lacks something still

Poured into an Irish tulip glass.

Look: Cascading bubbles settle into a black body with a ruby tint coming through in the light. A frothy, creamy tan head remain on top of the beer without receding much as the beer goes down. Light random patches of lacing are found on one side of the glass.

Aroma: Lactose sugar comes out a lot, with a creamy, milky note mixed with some chocolate.

Taste: Definitely tastes milky with a slightly sour lactose sugar finish. Leaves a bitter aftertaste. Tastes kind of metallic as well.

Mouthfeel: Paper thin and metallic, watery.

Overall: Really disappointed with the lack of body and taste in this. It smells alright but the aroma does not translate to taste. (698 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark brown, almost black in thw depths, with a foamy, creamy, light tan head. Aromas of heavy roasted coffee and creamy highlights, with nutty notes. Flavors are supersweet, with a heavy lactose character forward, tangy cream notes, and subtle coffee bitterness. Smooth and creamy bodied, but incredibly light. The aftertaste is tangy cream sweetness with chocolate and coffee highlights. Smooth, light, sweet cream lingering finish. (488 characters)

Pours a black color. 2/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, roasted malt, slight chocolate, hint of hop, hint of alcohol, and a hint of oatmeal. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, hint of liquor, roasted malt, slight chocolate, hint of alcohol, hint of hop, and a hint of wood. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, body, blend, complexity, and feel, but the liquor taste is unfortunate. (550 characters)

Firstly, let me preface this by saying that Parallel 49 is my favorite new(ish) brewery. They have colorful, distinctive packaging, they aren't afraid of experimenting, and most importantly, they make some damn fine beers. Unfortunately, N2 is not one of them. This is definitely a stout that did not benefit with the addition of nitrogen. The 180 degree pour produced about a half-inch of head, which dissipated almost instantly. It had a rather watery, tepid mouthfeel. Almost flavorless, if not for a subtle, sweetish maltiness at the finish. Maybe I have the refined palate of a saltwater crocodile, but this one was a swing-and-a-miss for me. Possibly my least favorite stout. Not much in the way of body, or flavor. (721 characters)

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

341ml bottle poured into pint glass 31/7/15

A dark cola liquid, even a dump down the middle didn’t do much for head or lace, beer looks pretty dead let alone for a nitro

S faint coffee and smoke, faint licorice, burnt brown sugar, some chocolate liqueur, smells a little sweet but to be expected with the style, what’s there smells decent but there’s not enough of it

T sweet roasted grains, some milk chocolate, not really far from the nose but lacking intensity for sure, just a little weak

M watery, almost dead flat, slick after the fact, room for improvement here without doubt

O pretty basic stuff start to finish, smells and tastes OK but its missing plenty

Maybe they forgot to pump my bottle full of nitro? Pretty still liquid not a whole lot to write home about (790 characters)
