Look - by looking at it I think it's a nitro from the look. Dark as night with a tan head.
Smell - sweet dark chocolate espresso smell
Taste - dark rich coffee taste
Feel - creamy and goes Down smooth
Overall - great coffee creamy stout

Appearance: Black as the dead of night, you will not see light through it. A nice creamy 2 fingers of brown head. It is fairly persistent and leaves a sticky lace.

Aroma: Coffee, malt, chocolate, caramel.

Taste: Espresso coffee, bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt. Moderately bitter with a dry finish.

Mouth feel: Medium bodied, creamy and slick. It sticks with you for a while.

Overall: This a great beer for a cold night. If you are a stout lover this a great beer anytime.

Delicious stout, very balanced flavor, not one note (coffee, chocolate, licorice, roasty malt, etc). like many stouts. Only the right flavors are in here, and blended in sweet harmony. Just enjoy this one and be grateful it exists.
