look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

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.

Served @~38F in a glass tumbler.

A: Black. Just black. Started with about a finger of dense tan head, which settled down to a lace after about two minutes. A bit of lace sticking to the sides of the glass, but not much.

S: Chocolate malty notes. A hint of burn bread crust. Not a whole lot going on though. Did they put any hops in here? Doesn't seem like it... bitterness seems like it's coming from roasted malts.

T: Taste is a strong point of this beer. Very rich chocolate malts, toasty burnt bread crusts. Basically, what was promised by the smell.

M: Very thick and creamy. Flavors are well integrated. Hangs around nicely, and the roasty malts give a nice astringent quality. Barely feel any carbonation.

I think this would pair nicely with dessert, especially something like vanilla ice cream with some cracked black pepper. Might make a good beer float even. For savory courses, maybe some Texas beef ribs.
