Nitro StoutNitro Stout
Notes: This interstellar stout has been generously nitrogenated resulting in an out-of-this-world drinking experience. It pours a cascading jet black with a signature tan head. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate give way to a perfectly smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Drinkers, we have lift-off.

FOR OPTIMAL ENJOYMENT: Invert can into a glass, pouring hard as the beer cascades out. Tiny nitrogenated bubbles will release leading to a perfectly smooth and creamy interstellar Stout. We have lift-off, enjoy.

473ml can - so, will we have lift-off, then? I'm not quite clear on that.

This beer pours a fairly solid black, with subtle amber basal edges, and three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and creamy (didn't really get a cascading effect) tan head, which leaves some decent webbed lace around the glass as it slowly seeps away.

It smells of bready and doughy cereal malt, cafe-au-lait, bittersweet cocoa powder, a bit of free-range ashiness, and very tame earthy, musty, and floral green hops. The taste is gritty and grainy caramel malt, medium-dark chocolate, day-old coffee grounds, mild wet char, and more well-understated leafy, herbal, and dead floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-pleasing frothiness, and well, nitro, so nice and smooth and creamy, with nothing getting in the way of a good time at this particular juncture. It finishes off-dry, the malt quietly closing up shop all by its lonesome.

Overall - this is a pleasant enough version of the style, full of flavour, and nicely balanced. Easy to put back, especially with the Guinness-esque ABV, but way better than the latter in the long run. Worth checking out.
