Served on-tap at Dirty Franks in Columbus into a straight-sloped pint glass.
A: Dark with an amber hue; it poured with a thick tan head that quickly died to a thin film.
S: Strong milk chocolate with coffee roasted malts and unmalted barley; a mild strawberry haunts the aroma.
T: Roasted malt and creamy coffee while the roasted malts linger. This beer doesn't taste as charred, burnt, or dense as others. The hops and the alcohol are not really detectable.
M: The mouthfeel is creamy and foamy and lingers just as if you drank a glass of milk.
D: This is definitely a sessionable beer.
Overall, "creamy" describes the entire experience. This is an extra-smooth stout. I've had it on nitro-tap before at the brewery and I remember it tasted just like a latte, but even at a normal tap it is one mild beer.
Serving type: on-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
