Nitro-Can poured into my Pittsburgh Pirates pint during the Pirates-Cubs game. Bucco's are currently up by 8; my hope is this beer does just as well:
A: Pours an awesome, cascading creamy dark color with a thick off-white head on top that neared settling in about 30 seconds or so... Impressive.
S: Muted notes of creamy sweetness... "roastiness" barely detectable. I don't really pick up much chocolate in the nose.
T: Big creamy sweetness sits on top of a delightfully light and smooth roasty beer. To be honest, this is a pleasant surprise for me. Lots of creamy sweetness, and the chocolate, although not dominant, is present in the creamy sweetness.
This beer has a lot of enjoyable gentle approachable flavors. Nothing "big" or "bold", and sometimes that's a nice thing.
M: Remarkably light and creamy. Lots and lots of "creamy head", but with no "distracting" carbonation, that really works for this beer. Very cool.
D/O: Very drinkable, surprisingly well even on a hot summer day. Overall, this beer doesn't "punch you in the mouth" like some stouts but is just super sweet and simple. Genuinely enjoyable.
Serving type: nitro-can
