4.38/5 rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 11.2 oz brown bottle with a best before date on the back label.
Appearance: Dense bubbly tan lace, great retention. The color is a shade away from pitch black.
Smell: Aromatic roasted smell of coffee and burnt grain.
Taste & Mouth Feel: Velvety smooth with an amazing viscous carbonation with in a moderate body. Creamy malt with mild roasted notes that turn into a dusty charcoal flavor. Clean palate with a light hop bitterness, finish very dry with a lingering charcoal note.
Drinkability & Notes: Highly quaffable, this one gives Guinness Draft a run for its money IMO.
Serving type: bottle

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
