Nitro pour at Brickhouse BBQ.
A. Pours a smooth black with a creamy light tan head.
S. Mild roast, sweet cocoa, toasted bread.
T. Lightly charred grain, a bit nutty, baker's chocolate. Dry to style but not watery.
M. Between light and medium-bodied with creamy carbonation.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/25/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light roast, light smoke, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark roasted malt flavors; with big robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dry stout! All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
