Poured from a nitro-pint can into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint
A-Holy crap this is pretty. The way the carbonation and creamy foam mixes with the super dark body of the beer is gorgeous. Through the glass, it looked like the bubbles were cascading like a waterfall, only upwards. It was a transcendental moment for me. Anyway, the body is opaque and the head is super creamy and tan in apprearance. The head stuck around for a long time and left decent lacing.
S-Eh, kinda bland. The nose is vaguely sweet, but that's about it.
T-The first quarter of the brew was kinda boring, tasted a lot like a more burnt Guinness. But once the beer warmed up, the choclate notes really came out, especially on the finish.
MF-Holy crap, this is without a doubt the creamiest beer I have ever had. The head was omnipresent, therefore getting through it to the beer with every sip gave a very creamy feel.
D-Not bad at all, but I wouldn't see myself sessioning this beer (even though I probably COULD, I wouldn't want to)
Overall, this is a fun beer, and I'll probably drink more in the future. I see myself making a sweet black and tan with this. I also would be very interested in trying this in the bottle and on-tap instead of nitro can.
Serving type: nitro-can
