On nitro at the brewery--hockey puck black with that distinctly nitro head that can't really be contributed to the base brew.

Being on nitro, not a lot came off the nose.

This is like Cigar City's take on Left Hand's Milk Stout. Literally, look up the reviews for that beer and this is damn near identical.

However, variations on the profile are some smokey undertones that I don't normally get from Milk Stout.

And, obviously, this is exceedingly dry, maybe too much so, but they achieved what they aimed for so well done.

On tap at Cigar City tasting room in Tampa. Not normally a fan of Irish Dry's so had low expectations. Outstanding appearance, dark black with a tan head that took forever to dissipate and left excellent lacing on the glass. Roast, some coffee, sweet malt aroma. Taste is pretty good, very much follows the nose. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Overall a pretty good beer which is saying for someone who generally does not care for the style.
