This one pours a pretty dark black color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like roasted malt, dark bitter chocolate, and some smoke.

This is definitely a more old school stout, with lots of roast, and some light creaminess from the nitro. There's a touch of dry smoke, with cocoa and dark chocolate.

This is definitely a bit thin - the nitro doesn't do a great job at propping up that mouthfeel. It's very drinkable, but not creamy enough, unfortunately.

This is solid enough, but it needs to be beefed up a little bit.

Poured the hard way - making sure I got the appropriate head for a nitro stout and it sure did give me a beautiful looking creamy colored head softly dissipating and barely leaving any lace. I had this in an English pint glass.
The aroma had a deep milk chocolate rolling into bittersweet dark chocolate tones. Some dark toast and cream slide in for a subtle blend.
The flavor yields to a pure bittersweet chocolate blend then some char/ashy sweetness. Long semi-sweet to bitter and roasty to creamy aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Super low carbonation felt but I was expecting that. ABV felt very nice. Finish was creamy with a touch of roast and cocoa powder, slightly dry and somewhat with some toast.
Overall, could be construed as an Irish Dry Stout to me but hell, who's arguing? It's still brewed quite well, I'd have this again.
