Poured out of a 440 ml (15 ounce) nitro-can into a shaker pint glass. There isn't as much pressure as opening a Guinness, so I go with a moderate pour which produces a solid one inch head, with the usual extra-creamy pale tan cascading head. The color is a very dark ruddy brown that scarcely admits the light of a Mini-Maglite flashlight.

Very strong and delicious chocolate aroma-flavor right off the bat, which smooths out as the beer progresses (but never really fades), allowing some nice roasted coffee and nutty flavors to emerge. You can taste some very obvious hazelnut and even pecan tones with some butteriness underlying it all. All in all, this is like eating a dank brownie made of organic goodness. Chocoholics will love this.

This is quite possibly the best sweet stout I've ever tried and I give it very high marks. It is hands down the best chocolate beer I've tried. Purchased as part of a four pack of 440 ml cans for right around 9-something. I want to pass on some kudos to Hennessey Market in Butte, Montana for bringing more variety in all good things, most especially in beer. Cheerio!

Serving type: nitro-can
