This beer poured almost black with a thin, chocolate mousse head that didn't stick around too long. Drank it out of a bee mug.
The nose was caramel malt and a nice whiff of raspberries. There was a subtle smokiness to the nose that contributed to a very nice, subtle, complex smell all around.
The taste has distinct woodsmoke notes on the tongue, with some smooth cream flavors on the swallow. Other caramel malt notes abound, and an overall smooth and subtle complexity is evident. The overall aftertaste is definitely smoky, but light and airy.
The mouthfeel is robust but not off-putting. Very smooth and light with a creamy texture one would expect from a milk stout.
Overall, a great beer that would do wonders in a nice session.

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.
