Poured from an 11.2-ounce bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Beer is a deep, dark brown color, completely opaque. It seems to lack the viscosity of a milk stout, but has a beautiful tan head which recedes to a gentle ring around the edge of the glass.
Smell: Rich, minty, sawdust tones over a heavy milk chocolate foundation. Slight bitterness. Just a touch of toasty oats.
Taste/Mouthfeel: A rich, milky carbonation provides the base for milk chocolate and a very, very gentle breakfast blend coffee flavor to dance across the tastebuds. Aftertaste is just mellifluous. Slightly bitter, and a general tasty beeriness.
Overall: I wouldn't say it beats the nitro-can (or, if you can get it, the nitro-tap) but it's definitely still got some spunk here.
Serving type: bottle
