Poured into a snifter.

4.0 A: Black color. One finger of creamy tan nitro head. Retention is nitro good and a moderate amount of it sticks to the glass.

4.0 S: Good bit of chocolate. Vanilla-esque aroma from the lactose. Supple roast, a touch of coffee, and a hint of molasses. Smells pretty good in spite of the nitro.

3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Chocolate, vanilla, lactose richness, supple roast, and hints of coffee and molasses. The nitro doesn't do too much damage here either.

4.0 M: Medium body. Creamy nitro carbonation, or nitrogenation, or whatever. Super smooth.

4.0 D: The nitro didn't suck the life out of this like it usually does. I still hate nitro, but this beer is a good application for it.

I had this beer at a local bar. They put eight craft options on the side away from the commoners.

Served in a fluted glass, I got about two fingers of foam from the pour. It looked good. The coloring was dark, but it is not too viscous on the pour.

The smell and flavor are like a sweet espresso roast. I get some light hopping in the background of the taste, as well. This is a pretty good tasting sweet stout.

Overall this is a good beer. I am a little hampered by the fact that I am allergic to the lactose, otherwise I would drink more of these.
