Nitro Bottle poured into tulip glass. Label said to pour hard.
A: Pour hard I did. 180 degrees full force pour. Anything else would have foamed onto your counter tops. This poured a pitch black, which you started to see the cascading head start to form. Almost like the head starts at the bottom of the glass and waterfalls to the surface. Absolutely beautiful.
S: A little roastyness from the malts, chocolate, nutty.
T: Definitely more roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. They are very light in flavors, Neither really overwhelm each other.
M: Nice and creamy, the nitro adds something special to this beer, and I like it.
O: This is a fine example of a sweet stout. Its not overwhelming, or is it underwhelming. The nitro bottle is a cool idea, however for me I like my stouts with a little more kick to them. Nothing wrong with this beer.

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.
