3.7/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

*Nitro-can - This was poured from a nitro-can. I have also had it out of a bottle (co2) and it was a different experience. Has a shelf life of 12 mo. BBD on this one is May 15, 2011. Poured in a regular pint glass.

A - A really enjoyable pour. Head of about a half inch, very creamy appearance. Watching the head settle was nice. Entire beer went from a cream dark brown to black, once the nitrogen dies back, from the bottom to the top, very slowly. The head stays on the glass after every drink.

S - Freshly cracked, the aroma was a nice, chocolate (smelt like chocolate milk to me) and malts are very pronounced. Enjoyable.

T - Super nice creamy nitro head. Awesome. Nice chocolate tones without the sweetness. I taste cocoa, dark & milk chocolate, some malt, cherry, and a small amount of hops. Pretty nice, but seems like it is missing something else, maybe more malt. I think the chocolate should be even more pronounced in the finish if possible..the finish is pretty thin. Aftertaste is decent, of roasty (dark) chocolate. Sweetness is more pronounced at the bottom of the glass as it settles. Cherry is easier to pick up from this point on.

M - Head is creamy. Stout is not. The weakest point of the beer. It's thin. Water thin.

D - I would buy it again, but it is not a stout I would go look for. I do like the chocolate but it just seems to be missing more flavor to me. I bought a 4-pack, and after two, I was good. The fourth was in my fridge for a two weeks and I am drinking it right now.

If you have the option to try it in a bottle, go that route. I enjoyed it more. You just miss out on the creamy head.

Serving type: nitro-can
