I tried this at the Ballast Point location in downtown Chicago. It poured an opaque dark with tan head that left some lace. The scent had hints of roast and chocolate. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with mocha flare. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

Had on tap. Found this to be a battle of sips. First the good: the nitro enhanced the already creamy and robust body, lending itself nicely to the roasted coffee and oats. The not so good was the metallic aftertaste on some sips. Really took away from the nice roasted malt, and instead made malt taste like nickel. Overall ok

Nitro at the Horseshoe in Hudson, MA. Ordered it because I haven't had a nitro stout for over a year and bc its Ballast Point so I figure it would be good. Didn't disappoint. Had the body, feel, and character that is expected. Creamy, malty, roasty. Easy drinking and tasty. Well done!
