A – This beers oozes luxuriously into the glass. The nitrous yields a super-smooth head which accompanies the body of the beer on the pour with the bubbles cascading downwards before billowing upwards and forming ranks as the pour finishes. The head is wonderfully creamy; it reminds me of the very fine foam you get when blending milkshakes. Sexy beer.
S – Cocoa powder, melted Cadbury’s milk chocolate, faint roastiness and a smidgen of malt.
T – Surprisingly bitter, definitely more towards the cocoa powder end of the chocolate spectrum. Not as sweet as Sam Smith’s. Sort of reminds me of a fuller-bodied, less-watery, chocolaty Guinness. Quite mild in flavour.
M – Insanely smooth as indicated by its appearance. It’s definitely creamy, but by the end of the glass the mild flavour and low carbonation flirt with blandness and sickliness.
O – I like this beer and I’d buy it more often at the right price. However for this to be a beer which really blows me away it would need to have a sweeter aspect, more intense flavour, heavier body to balance the smoothness of the carbonation which all in all would probably also involve a higher abv. A beer which I definitely recommend trying as it represents a more unusual style (milk/sweet stout) and format (nitrous can). Nice.
Serving type: nitro-can
