Beautiful nitro thick creamy tan head over a black body. Has a lovely way of settling to a creamy solid chunk that won't spill out of the glass if you tilt it. Smell is generic mild hop and roasted malt. First sip is almost all head. Similar to Guinness cans in that respect. Actual beer isn't that impressive - seems a bit flat, even compared to Guinness nitro. Flavors are all very subdued. The chocolate is very subtle in the aftertaste, hop bitterness is pretty low, and there's not a lot of malt flavor. Watery consistency overall due to the lack of bitterness, dryness or sweetness. I'd call this an interesting alternative to Guinness if you can find the cans, but not a very interesting beer. I imagine the bottled version has much better in the aroma & mouthfeel and possibly flavor as well.
Serving type: nitro-can
