Had on tap on Saturday, nitro pour. Has that typical look that one would expect from a nitro stout: dark brown body, cascading bubbles, tight white head that leaves dollops of lacing.

Smell is, as the style on nitro, pretty muted. Some sweetness and hints of roasted malt, touch of lactose. Taste fairs a bit better, nice roastiness in the middle, bitter and charred end. Nice velvety mouthfeel and fairly light body.

Overall it's a nice beer, but the nitro mutes the flavor. It's a bit stronger than Guinness but not by much.
