I really like this in a bottle, but on draught (nitro tap) this is heaven.
Pours black as night with a tan head which is as creamy and smooth as mousse. Lacing is an understatement, as my pint glass is coated with foam as I finish the beer.
Smell: Coffee, carmel, chocolate, roasted malted barley.
Taste is also coffee, carmel, chocolate, malt.
Sillky, smooth and hearty stout. Coffee aftertaste.
Overall? This is by far the best stout I've tasted to date. Good in a bottle, great on tap.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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
