Wonderfully creamy head and nitro pour. Head stick around the entire time, sticky lace clings to the sides of the glass. The beer is plenty dark, almost a the darkest brown possible.
Admittedly a lighter smell. Chocolate, oats, light char, pleasant roasted malts, milk/lactose, dark fruits, hints at vanilla extract, and light coffee for that matter, maybe molasses and nuttiness as well.
Rich and malty, chocolate, oat-like smoothness and taste, light char, sweetness/cream/lactose (though not extensive), dark fruit notes, light coffee and bitterness, light vanilla, hints of molasses.
Mouthfeel is wonderful. Smooth and creamy consistency. medium (maybe medium-low) body, with the awesome nitro smooth carbonation feel, and a pleasantly lingering slightly bitter finish.
Great beer. I used to drink Guiness draught cans on a regular basis because I love me a smooth drinking nitro beer every so often, but since Nitro Milk Stout came out, it has easily kicked Guiness to the curb.

Bought a single at HEB in Round Rock.
Perfect looking beer. Gave a hard pour...deep black, big billowy head. Absolutely beautiful lacing...thick creamy off white head leaves tons of ring after each sip...much like a Guinness.
Yum. Rich chocolate, vanilla, and coffee on the scent. Deep burnt malt as well.
Excellent. Taste follows suit. Silky smooth beer with a lot of flavor without overloading the alcohol...what's not to like here? Good combo of choc, vanilla, coffee, dark malt, and cream. Almost like a dessert beer...not sure I'd session this one, even with the 6% abv being sessionable...just a bit too rich.
Glad I finally tried it!
