On Nitro from the brewery.
A- Dark brown, nearly black. If you didn't hold it to the light, you would swear it was none more black. The cascade was a little weak but oh well. This provides the great head. Thick lacing.
S- Aroma is very soft and subtle. Not intimidating at all. Light chocolate and roasted oats.
T&M- Very creamy and soft texture. Roasted oats are smooth and not harsh and cocoa is left on the palate. Not very bitter but a slight burnt coffee in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied with that great feathery carbonation from the nitro.
D- This doesn't come out to assult your senses. The taste begins to grow and become more complex and you really start to appreciate this beer. Like Guinesss, made to drink a ton off by being ultra smooth and sessionable. I just wish they would brew this more often, not just around Irish Fair time.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Served in a nonic pint glass
The beer is a deep opaque brownish-black with a tan head that dissipates into some spotty lacing down the glass.
Great aroma from this beer: Nutty malt, chocolate, toffee, a light hop odor as well.
This is a great tasting stout loaded with flavor. A burst of milk chocolate, then nuttiness, oatmeal, a little vanilla and a lingering bite of bitter dark chocolate. Surprisingly layered.
The mouthfeel is spot on: smooth and creamy with little carbonation. Nearly perfect.
Overall, this draft-only beer from Summit is a great example of the style and I'm pleased I got to try it.
Serving type: on-tap
