for a porter it is extremely thin and watery tasting. not complex. like other canned nitros, very silky but in a thin way, not that thick viscous way.

Decent beer. I had it on tap. Nice dense nitro head. Love the thick nitro bubbles that lasted throughout. Very smooth, silky, but a bit thin. Cocoa and vanilla. Simple roasty beer. Next time I set my alarm for early in the morning to drink all day, this would be a good beer to make that journey with me.

I LOVE these nitro brews from Breckenridge. They tend to be way better on tap than from the can though. Nitro gives it a soft, fluffy mouthfeel without the carbonation sting. Rich and decadent.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar but when held up to a bright light it is very dark reddish brown. It poured with a finger and a half high dense beige colored head that died down a bit but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with hints of chocolate and bits of vanilla.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts with notes of cola and hints of vanilla, the latter of which are most noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a nice smooth mouthfeel but I was expecting it to have more in the way of vanilla in the smell and taste.

Serving type: nitro-can
