I have the nitro milk stout
A- Opaque black, I held it up to a light and barely any shown through. Tanish head with great retention. I was told to pour it straight down the center, which I did. I was expecting a little better head off the hype the guy who sold it to me, not really that "nitro-y", just a stout with good head retention, which is just like saying a stout...
S- roast, some residual sweetness
T- nice clean attack, has that classic Guinness-like start where you think, "wow, this is pretty light, I could probably drink a million of these". The roast flavor tempers the lactose sweetness well. Usually when I see milk stout I get ready with a glass of water afterwards to wash the candy like sweetness out of my mouth, which is not necessary with this beer. The sweetness lingers on pleasantly.
M- very smooth and almost refreshing despite the sweetness.
O- I want to love this. As I have gone through my pint I keep nudging up the taste score. Its just too sweet to take over as a go to stout

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.
