12 oz can. Pours dark brown black with a medium fizzy creamy brown head that goes to a thin layer and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet and roasty chocolate malts with some acidic coffee.

The flavor is sweet chocolate with lots of roast coffee and a slightly ashy finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I like the sweet chocolate and roast coffee.

12oz can. Pours a blackish dark brown color with a half inch of frothy light brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is roasty with some nice chocolate and coffee. Hint of vanilla. Slightly earthy. The taste is chocolate and coffee with some roasted malts. Some charcoal and earth. Finishes with the espresso. Lots of carbonation with a slightly thin mouthfeel. Not much alcohol warmth. Overall, good amount of coffee flavor but a bit on the lighter side for a stout.

Served a pilsner glass, on nitro at Malt & Vine.

Nitro stouts are beautiful. Black, velvety, creamy lush head. This is all of that. Smell is strong coffee and lots of roasted malt.

Taste is what I wish Guinness tasted like. Nice coffee bitterness, rich malt and nice roastiness, but packaged in a nice, balanced way that doesn't overpower at all.

Mouthfeel is nitro stout. Creamy, silky, pleasant. Overall, very good.
