Had on tap at The Hideout. Nitro-pour and CO2 versions available.

A-Average for a stout. Nothing really sticks out. Nice little creamy head on top. Comparable to a Guinness...or any other nitro stout for that matter.

S-You get little muted hints of the hazelnut. The again, I've never really known nitrogen beers to impart very strong flavors....maybe due to the lack of effervescence?

T-This is definitely Hideout's marquee product as it's available in multiple bars in the GR area. It's got quite a bit of robust hazelnut flavor to it that feels a tad artificial. Reminds me a bit of Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown. A bit of oatmeal as well.

M-Creamy. Much like any other nitro beer. Little viscous at points.

O-Decent offering but nothing that will knock your pants off.
