On tap. Pours black as night with an impressive tan head that lingers and leaves lacing down the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is a balance of coffee and chocolate with a malt backbone to keep it from getting too sweet. Creamy, full body and low carbonation.
Nitro did to Sumatra Brown what it does to all beers, make it prettier and creamier while obscuring some of the more subtle parts of a beer. The hops and some of the cocoa paid the price, but that creaminess is just dreamy. Another beer that Founders successfully nitro-ed.

Pours a dark black with a cascading brown head. Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste follows the nose almost exactly. Medium creamy body with a medium carbonation. Overall pretty much the normal Sumatra with a creamy body.

Deep dark brown color where light passes through the center of the glass. Excellent, thick nitro hear and it leaves a solid blanket of lace on the glass.

Strong powdered cocoa nose. Semisweet like hot chocolate before the hot milk is added.

Smooth, rich with a higher "carbonation". Deep semisweet cocoa flavor. Chalky and darker chocolate finish. I would put this beer in the darker Porter category than Brown Ale.
