look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dark almost black color with a very faint red tinge around the edges, Creamy tan head. I struggle to find any aroma. Dry very mild chocolate taste with very little bitterness. Very smooth with hardly any carbonation. Seems kind of on the bland side with not much as far as anything extraordinary. No bitterness and certainly finishes dry. I sense some sourness in the middle. Little bit of a chalky feel to it. Doesn't have anything as far as turn offs but doesn't excite the senses either.

Poured from a nitro can into a pint glass

A:Pours a solid ebony with fleeting tan carbonation. Once it settles down it leaves a half inch head that doesn't dissipate but leaves a touch of lacing.

S: Not much at all in the way of aroma, a touch of coco powder and coffee.

T: Very subtle and not too flavorful. Watery at first with subtle chocolate and coffee with a very slight touch of hops in the back.

M: Wow, that nitro widget adds a lot. Light bodied but sooo seductively smooth and creamy... it makes me think of a milkshake.

Overall: A half decent beer, not much in the way of flavor or aroma but what it has is pleasant. Very, very drinkable.
