From the bottle, it pours a deep dark brown with a modest light brown head. Burnt malt and coffee in the nose. The mouth gets the burnt malt and coffee with a touch of bitterness.

Pours a typical nitro serving pour. Black with 2 fingers of tannish foam.

Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted/burnt malt. Lactose.

Coffee, semi sweet chocolate, burnt malt, lactose. Yeah, bittersweet.

Creamy mouthfeel, decent enough but when I finish the 4-pack, I'm done.

Solid light tan nitro head. Clear dark body with garnet highlights.

Muted coffee, roast, and dark fruits on the nose. Toffee and brown sugar.

Chocolate, coffee, cream, pecans, grapes, prunes, plums. Wonderfully smooth profile. Very bitter rind finish.

Dark brown, clear beer with beautiful, beige, creamy nitro-head.

Nose: Cold brew coffee, dark chocolate, brown sugar, dark bread, roasted malt and milk.
Taste: Sweet coffee, caramel malt, brown sugar, honey and lactose.
Mouth: Medium body. Smooth with almost no carbonation. Bitter ending an high sweetness. Sweet and bitter - bittersweet!
Pretty light for an almost 9% ABV stout.

This nitro version adds even more creamy feeling than the original stout.

I really like this stout! It's very easy drinking and light, still with many great coffee flavors (and I love that).
