Poured and drunk at the Harpoon beer hall. The beer has a lot of tan head that dissipates ata moderate pace. Since the beer is nitro-based, the head comes into different kinds. The head foam is creamy and a very light tan that resembles a off-white cream. The other foam is the nitrogen disappearing into the beer and has a darker brown color and different bubbly texture. After the nitrogen dissipates, the beer is an opaque milk chocolate brown. The beer has a chocolate milk smell with dairy notes and a bit of the nitro as well. The taste is similar in that a chocolate milk taste dominates the flavor with very light notes of cocoa and cream. The beer has a very smooth feel with very little carbonation. (709 characters)
