Saw this on tap at SD Brewing Company the other night. Didn't even know it came in anything but the bottle...
A - Very dark nitro pour left it with a slightly darking look then the dark brown Guinness prototype and plenty of the wonderful nitro fueled head you'd expect. Looks like my kinda stout.
S - Wow, the chocolate and coffee notes are just MASSIVE. Especially the dark chocolate thing coming thru. My jaw dropped.
T - Nothing like it....Amazing how much chocolate is in here! Its a well balanced stout with little to no hops present and plenty of roasted flavors. The high chocolate content follows the intital roasty flavors and finishes like a good coffee / Swiss chocolate combo.
M - Great. Again this was a nitro pour and that helped to make it real smooth. I thought it got a little swishy towards the end, but overall a solid mouthfeel.
D - Pretty high. I'd have this again for sure. Maybe wouldn't want it all night but it was a great finisher and went really well with a burger too. I'm gonna try it in a bottle next time I see it just to compare... I suspect it shines on nitro much more??
Serving type: nitro-tap
