12 oz nitro bottle poured into tulip. bottled on 11/13/12.

A: very dark brown body. pretty close to black. head is almost the complete opposite. a bright white. creamy. retention is meh, some chunky lacing left behind.

S: chocolate. sweet brown sugar. vanilla beans.

T: tons of sweet chocolate. bits of unfermented sugar tingles on the palate. a lingering dark chocolate. bitter and very dry.

M: not a bad job on the nitrogenation. medium bodied.

D: wooo, this is one sweet stout. the nitrogen makes for a really nice addition to a American made milk stout. truly one-of-a-kind. get some in the nitro-form.

Pours with an awesome cascade of nitro wonderfulness. Ends with dark body that has amber highlights in the light and a tanned creamy head.

Enticing aromas of sweet milk chocolate and roast and coffee.

The flavor brings out a nice roastiness, coffee, and chocolate. Was expecting more sweetness but works without it letting the roast shine.

Smooth and creamy beyond belief.

Great easy drinking sessionable stout. Kills Guinness as far as a nitro stout is concerned.
