On nitro tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt and cocoa aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight coffee flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but the nitro presentation isn't doing much to help it.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Poured a deep black hue with creamy tan head that had a nice retention.
The aroma was a weak chocolate malt with some watery roast characteristics.
The flavor was a weak chocolate malt with a dry roast coffee but it's washed away with a literally water like twaste and texture.
The feel is way too light for a stout but does have a dryness. The finish is like plain tap water.
This was no difference in this and Guinness's nitro can in flavor and feel.
Serving type: on-tap
