On-Tap (nitro) poured into a pub glass at Euclid Hall
A: Perfect black with a tan creamy inch and a half head. Head is thick and creamy. Perfect head retention.
S: Malt and creaminess comes through. The malt is smooth not bitter.
T: Exceptional. No bitterness whatsoever. Silky smooth and moderately rich and you can taste the lactose. The malts are thick but smooth, not chewy. The nitrogen removes any imperfections within this beer.
M: Heavy and full bodied. The entire palate is coated with no residual after taste. Almost has the feel of sipping milk with it's richness and thickness. Finish is smooth and lingers.
D: Great session stout. Blows beers like Guinness out of the water. The silky smoothness of the beer, with zero bitterness, makes this almost like drinking milk- yet stout. Perfect for any occasion.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
