Poured from a 12 oz. nitro bottle into a snifter.
The pour is a dark brown molasses color with a small off white cap. Nothing impressive from the nitro.
The aroma is much more muted than in the regular bottle. Smoked and dark roasted malts, some chocolate and milk sugar.
The flavor is soft, flat, and a shell of the original beer, without any benefit in the mouthfeel. It is light, somewhat watery, and just a little bit smooth. There is roasted malt, some chocolate, and sweet, creamy lactose, but the whole thing just comes off flat. The finish has a soft, slightly synthetic flavor to it.
At least with Guinness there is a cascading effect with the creamy head. The appearance, aroma, taste, and mouthfeel are worsened by the nitro.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
