On nitro-tap at the brewery in Seattle. Something like a smoother, more pumped up version of their Troll Porter.

Pours a deep brown-black colour with solid opacity and a firm body. Head is insanely thick and smooth, forming a crema-to-off-white head that leaves creamy lace. Tiny bubbles when tilted. Yes.
Yes.

Creamy smooth aromas from the get-go. Milk chocolate, slightly, judiciously toasted grain—it creates a mild smoothness that doesn't over power. No overt roasted characters. Smells great.

Taste follows this theme as well. Light, creamy entry, with a touch of roast which gives a slightly acid tone. Clean, smooth mid-palate feels slightly empty, before some more prominent dark characters come through on the back to leave a lingering roast with a hint of sparkling effervescence.

Feel is smooth and languid from the nitro—it really helps overall, as I feel is might feel a bit thin in and of itself.

Very smooth, clean and mild. Lovely to drink.

Serving type: nitro-tap
