Nitro draft into a tulip for $6. Sampled 9/6/11.

A: Pours with a four finger cascading head – medium dark brown, thick, creamy, frothy – and not budging one bit. Incredible retention. Body is as brown as it can be without being black. Beautiful. Wouldn’t change a thing.

S: First smell gives impressions of acetone, extremely dark chocolate and Hershey’s syrup. Definite oak character. The nail polish remover falls off quickly enough to enjoy most of the brew and reveals some rich fudgey notes. Even still, a minor hit is taken.

T: Even better than the nose. Impressively, the ABV is buried and the acetone is nowhere to be found. Just pure toasted chocolate, in all of its glorious forms: Dark, bitter, sweet & baker’s chocolate, fudge and even a dusting of cocoa powder. A nuttiness struggles to come through, as well as some dark fruit undertones. Both are hardly recognizable. Oaky tannins throttle back the perceived sweetness. ABV starts to become apparent as the beer comes to temperature.

M: Nitro works perfectly for a stout of this magnitude. The texture is lush and velvety. And the expansive creaminess is mouthcoating. Carbonation is low and just right. A little warm in the back of the throat but that is to be expected.

O: I knew this was going to be a treat, but I wasn’t expecting to be blown away. Spectacular beer from a brewery that puts out a number of very solid offerings.

Serving type: nitro-tap
