Out of nitro can into a room temperature fluted glass on a friday night on my deck...
A - a beautiful dark body, and a large, creamy, frothy light brown head that laces appropriately and lasts through the entire glass.
S - I will give them credit here, it has a nice aroma. While light, it has a nice toasted flair with a milk chocolate and coffee backbone.
T - unfortunately, the taste does not match, certainly not in intensity, with the wonderful nose. It falls flat here, and I firmly believe, unless you are just a chocolate stout fan, this is an average tasting beer. It's initial presentation is slightly sweet, with a faint chocolae undertone, and an ultra short finish. (which does add to it's drinkability)
M - a medium body with a very light, watery (read:non-oily, like an imperial stout would) mouthfeel. Carbonation is non-existent.
D - Keep in mind this is a nitro-can from across an ocean. I wouldn't think the bottle is better, or even as good, but would love to have a shot at this brew fresh from the source. This is not a sipping beer, it is a pub beer t go enjoy in a group, and maybe in high quanitities. That's the place for this, because most people can't have 10% ABV beers and make it more than an hour or so of lively company. So, there is a great place for this stout, and I think they did hit it on the head here.
Serving type: nitro-can
