16oz draft pour into a pint glass boasts an infinitely deep, dark, black body and floats a persistent 1/4in light cream colored cap of tightly compacted tiny bubbles and coats the glass with erratic spidery lacing.

Aroma is cocoa leaning roast malt, with a coffee back and the flavors match.

Mouthfeel is a perfectly soft, creaminess expected of a nitro presentation.

Overall, a solid stout on nitro.

Pours a dark black with a brown nitro head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, and mild chocolate. Tastes of bitter roasted malts, slightly burnt coffee, spices, and some mustiness. Very creamy mouthfeel with a medium-heavy body. Overall it's still a great beer. One of the better affordable stouts out there.
