Wow, such a beautiful pour. The lovely cascading effect is amazing out of the bottle. Settles into a rich looking black liquid with an incredibly creamy, thick foamy head. Color is strinkingly dark and deep. Only the brightest and most direct light genetrates this beer, glowing a deep brown-reddish hue. Such a looker. Smell is not strong, but present; sweet creamy coffee, some faint cocoa, roasty dark malts, even a bit of hop oil. Taste follows aromas, starts up sweeter and smooth, lots of milked latte and hot cocoa tastes. Really rich beer! Mouthfeel is the highlight, the nitrogen makes this a true desert beer. The beer is so thick and velvety smooth, while carbonation is muted.
One of the best stouts from Colorado and a treat to be proud of. The nitro bottle is pure beer innovation and changes their base milk stout into a whole new beer. Delicious, beautiful and so, so smooth.

A - Poured very dark black had a thin tan head looked like soda foam. Great lacing rings left around glass.
S - Very sweet and honestly like milk chocolate.
T - Taste is great. Chocolate with vanilla undertones. Starts off creamy/milky and finishes a bit dry with a vanilla/caramel taste. So good.
M - Creamy, smooth, slightly below average carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Will definitely buy again

12oz bottle poured into a stout glass.
Pours nice and black, with little head that dissipates quickly.
Smells like sweet cream. Hint of coffee/toffee.
Tastes great. Creamy texture with a good amount of sweetness, but not overpowering. Subtle vanilla taste at first that is more noticeable on the finish. Slight coffee taste. I detect some slight spices, but don't know where that could be coming from.
Overall a very good beer. Bought a six pack of this and I'm looking forward to seeing how this tastes in a few months.
