Can from the Packie.
Dark brown with a small tightly bubbled khaki head that slowly recedes. Rich caramel and toffee with hints of earthy and dark dried fruit.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color and seems to have a moderate amount of carbonation based on the small bubbles that are visible near the edges of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger high creamy tan head that died down a bit and left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and coffee are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and also has a light amount of bitterness from the underlying hops.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink. The aromas and flavors aren't overly strong, but the nitro adds a pleasant touch to the mouthfeel.

Serving type: nitro-can

Pours a muddy brown color with a creamy, nitro induced head. Flavor wise, it kind of reminds me of a Murphy's Irish stout. Smooth, slight bitterness and an almost smoky backbone. I think this is a pretty tasty brew and at 4.8% ABV it's easy to toss back a few. I would definitely buy this again. It's not earth shattering but it is a solid brew and well crafted.

Pours a semi clear brown color. A thin wisp of a head nevertheless retains well.
Aromas of dark toasted and biscuity malts. Hints of dark chocolate evoke notes of lightly nutty and roasted malts.
The taste aligns with the aroma through its notes of dark toasted and biscuity malts, mildly sweet but balanced by notes of lightly roasted malts and earthy hops. Subtle notes of chocolate, tea leaves, bread crusts, and lemon.
Light to medium bodied and smooth. Finish is smooth with a touch of bitterness on the back end. The carbonation is mild.
Well balanced and easy drinking. As sessionable as it gets. I would have again.

Pours a dark muddy brown, settles out to a .5" creamy head from the nitro can, great retention and some thick lacing. Nose is dry baking chocolate, salt water, noble hop, metal. Taste is RC Cola, dark chocolate, light malt, salt. Salinity lingers far into the finish. Flavors are altogether muted. Mouthfeel is ultra smooth, maybe a whiff of carbonation on the back end. Overall a smooth experience, but the brackishness was a bit weird.

Poured from a 16 oz can born 2/24/21. Pours dark brown with 1 solid finger of foamy head... slowly recedes. Tastes of watery sweet chocolate & coffee but very subtle. Becomes more pronounced as it warms. Low ABV makes this a solid choice. A fan.

Pours a tan colored creamy rich1 finger head with great retention, definite nitro head, sticky lacing, very dark chestnut brown color

Nose starts with nitro, again nitro overpowering the beer unfortunately, then creamy milk sugar lactose, finally into what it should have, some roasty notes, coffee, espresso, but that's about it, hint of baking spices as it warms

TAste starts with more creamy nitro but not overpowering, more roasty malts, coffee, espresso but all light, a hint of cocoa, toasted malt notes, a touch of caramel as well, a touch of lactose I think, bit of bitterness starting from the dark malts and then a mild spicy hop late, a touch more baking spices

Mouth is super creamy milky nitro, med light foamy small nitro bubbles

Overall meh, it's not quite an English Mild, more like a very light milk stout, there was very little actual character to it and super light nose, and the nitro overpowered
