Outstanding head … all canned nitro brews are like this right? Smells of powdered hot chocolate, hint of alcohol, kiss of roasted grain and some sweetness. This pretty much goes the same for the flavour but add a vague fruitiness, a bitter twang from the hops and roasted malt, and a remarkable smoothness. I prefer this on tap so much more but this is not too bad.

Serving type: nitro-can

This is a crazy yummy beer! So damn chocolatey, rich, creamy and smooth ... the complexities are making me drool. And on top of that it's an outstanding stout. A perfect pairing with any dessert, chocolate or on its own. Now available in cans.

Presentation: 500ml brown bottle embossed with a ram and adorned with a purple label.

Appearance: Black and thick with a creamy, bubbly, tan head.

Smell: Roasted and chocolate aromas.

Taste: Extremely smooth and creamy with a chewy, nicely odd, mild sweetness that mingles with a slight burnt/roasted chocolate flavour (big chocolate flavour). An underlying hop flavour balances the malt, showing up about half way thru the taste with a hint of licorice. The mouth is left a bit dry with a lingering note of astringency.

Notes: Hands down, and incredible stout and deadly in its drinkability. Unfortunately a bottle goes for about $3-3.50, making it a brew for special occasions.

Serving type: bottle
