A - Pitch black with a nice light tan creamy head. Head retention is good, as is the lacing.

S - Smokey roasted malts are at the forefront. mocha (chocolate/coffee)is well defined in the background, coffee with more to say!

T - Chocolate roasted malts now dominate while the smokiness is still present it was mostly in the aroma. Some coffee and hints of dark fruit are present on the back of the tongue. Overall a balanced flavor, but not overly complex.

M - Medium-heavy bodied, a little thin for most of the stouts I have experienced. Very creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is what to expect with a nitro-stout... Finishes with lots of roasted malts, more currant like fruit and the stong mocha punch!

D - Well rounded, starts out dominating with the smokiness and finishes the same way...yummy stout...but a bit much on the currant/mocha ride...chasin' cheers :~)

Nitro pour into a becker style pint glass. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a nice two finger, dark khaki nitro head. Aroma dominated by milk and dark chocolate, mild sweet toasted malt. Flavor is also mild milk chocolate, finishing semi-dry lighly toasty biscuit malt. Medium bodied with light creaminess from the nitro pour. A pleasant, but light dry stout with a nice blend of chocolate and malts. Left me wishing for more robust flavors, but nicely done at this ABV and a nice, mellow mildly toasty dry stout.

Jet Black with a thin tan head that does not go anywhere, it just sits on top to the bottom of the glass as long as you just sip at it. Chocolate aromas mostly, maybe a little smokiness. Chocolate taste up front with a little coffee and crystal malts thinning the mix. A pretty much perfect thin, creamy feel with a dry finish.

A great tasting and feeling dry irish stout. I could drink them most of the night and then finish with something a little more robust.

Poured black with a finger of khaki head. Mild aroma of roasty coffee and a hint of cocoa.

Slightly low carbonation and a creamy, extremely thin mouthfeel. Weak initial flavors of bready malt and coffee that open up into a really nice cocoa quality on the finish.

Very smooth and drinkable, but not hugely memorable.
