look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured violently from a 12oz nitro bottle in to a nonic pint glass.
Appearance: A jet black body quickly erupts into a thick off-white creamy head. Plenty of lacing.
Smell: Coffee, dark cocoa, sugary lactose, plenty of roasted malts. Inviting and exciting.
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, lactose, with a hint of bitterness towards the finish. Not as impressive as the smell, but still delicious.
Mouth: Nitrogen lends a wonderful creamy mouthfeel that leaves a syrupy film after swallowing.
A perennial favorite with a wonderful chocolate, coffee, and lactose smell, a malty taste, and a creamy, if not slightly syrupy mouthfeel.
Serving type: bottle

Good beer. Imagine Guinness or Murphy's with a little sugar added and you have this beer. Personally I'm not a fan sweets. This beer's sweetness is mild but it is too sweet for my liking. If Guinness is black coffee, this is a latte. Great for those who like the texture of nitro beers without the roasted flavor.

A-The pours was definitely fun. Just throwing it out of the glass. It cascades and everything. Nice creamy, nitrogen infused head. Dark body, not much light penetration.
S-Aroma is roasty first and foremost. Milk chocolate. Coffee with cream. A pleasant, textbook stout aroma.
T-The flavor is roasty again but I also get a somewhat noticeable grassy hoppiness in the back end. In between is coffee and milk chocolate or even mocha. A little chalky. Light, dark fruitiness.
M-The body is creamy but the carbonation isn't up to par. It's nearly flat and it really doesn't retain it's carbonation well.
O/D-Bought a single. Glad I didn't go for a full sixer. It was a cool beer to pour, and the flavors were pretty on point however, the carbonation was very flat. Still happy I tried this.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
