Wow. This is the creamiest, thickest, chewiest nitro-stout I've had. It is a sheer joy to savor in the mouth after admiring a one-inch thick head and decent lacing. Don't let the full-bodied character intimidate you if that's a danger... This is a very drinkable, pleasant beer.
Smell-wise, it's rather standard with hints of chocolate and coffee. It tastes like stouts of similar quality; the thing that sets it apart are the body and creaminess. A definite advantage I had, even here in Colorado, was getting served on nitro (thank you Taps, in Fort Collins).
Serving type: nitro-tap

Thanks to BubalooBrewMaster for this one.
12oz bottle with a Best Before date of 08/08/14. Pours a black color with a half inch of brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is chocolatey with some roasted malts, cola, and espresso. The taste is chocolate syrup, roasty malts, earth and espresso. More chocolate and espresso towards the end with a bitter, roasty espresso finish. Slightly thick mouthfeel with a good deal of carbonation. This is an easy drinking stout with lots of chocolate and espresso flavor. Overall, worth seeking out.
