Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Glints of light if held up to a very bright light. Smooth, velvety head that never goes away.
Sweet, malty aroma. Powdered cocoa, sugar, and a little alcohol aroma.
Surprisingly not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. Dark chocolate is definitely there, cocoa powder, some sugary sweetness. But, there's a lovely, smokiness that comes in early to cut the sweetness. Subtle herbal hops round out the flavors.
Thick body. Motor oil consistency. Velvety smooth from the nitro widget.
Quite drinkable. Great dessert beer.
Since I have a huge sweet tooth, I tend to gravitate to the sweeter stouts, like this and milk stouts. This did not disappoint. Now, I just need to find it on tap somewhere.
Serving type: nitro-can
