A-Dark with a mocha head. No lacing.

S-Roasted malt, coffee

T-Roasted malt and coffee dominate the flavor profile with a hint of smoke and a somewhat harsh aftertaste. Not a great tasting or complex stout.

M-Medium bodied for the style

D-I wasn't particularly impressed, so it was one and done for me, but its lack of complexity and decent flavor could allow someone to drink a few of these in a setting.

A - black/slight brown appearance with a foamy head and nice lacing.

S - Light hop smell, a clean smell.

T - burnt caramel, malty, with a hint of hops.

M - not much carbonation, smooth

O - It has the typical stout aftertaste, with a lot of hop flavor in the end. This review is on the bottled beer, but I had it on tap and I thought it was amazing. On tap, I would give it a perfect score because it was so creamy, which complimented the flavors of the beer. I would drink this on tap again for sure.

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

Appearance: Beautiful hourglass effect from the nitro-tap as the carbonation and color changed continuously from light to dark brown, before settling into an appetizing chocolate color. The opaque beer was topped by a well-formed, creamy tan head.

Smell: A fresh, and somehow frosty bouquet that really perks up the nostrils. The smell was of powdered milk and chocolate, with a gentle background of roasted malt. Round and appetizing.

Taste: The base malt changes on the palate, starting with a sweet, chocolate taste, then easing into a more grainy flavor, and finally coming to a mildly bitter, roasted finish. Some residual sweetness manages to hang on throughout. Secondary flavors are solid, yet basic milk stout tastes--coffee, chocolate, and cream.

Mouthfeel: A delicate, creamy, smoother-than-silk texture. Luxurious. Light carbonation, and medium body.

Overall: Definitely happy to have this via nitro-tap! My husband was so intrigued by the visual the nitrogen provided, that he took a video of the beer's "lava lamp" antics. The mouthfeel in particular benefitted from the smooth, airy nitrogen qualities. Otherwise, the beer was standard for a solid, well-made milk stout.
