Poured slowly into a pint, the head on this comes to about two fingers of light tan creaminess. The beer is a deep dark-brown, near black. Lots of lace and head retention is very nice.

The aroma leaves a bit to be desired, with light watery roasted malts, bitterness, cocoa powder, light coffee and dark chocolate, along with some sweetness, almost light lactose sugar.

Much the same as the aroma, with lighter roasted malts, sweetness, and bitterness that compliment nice cocoa powder and slightly bitter chocolate notes with hints of coffee, caramel, dark fruits, sugar, and a subtle hopping.

Mouthfeel is the definition of smooth. The carbonation is low and smooth, consistency is just stupid creamy, while the body is light but coating the mouth, like a nitro or nitro can should be. The finish is smooth, subtle, and a tad bitter, but nice.

Overall a very nice offering in the milk/sweet stout category, especially if you're looking for a good nitro, not from the tap. Actually this is probably my second favorite nitro can or bottle behind Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout, which is now my all time favorite and go to for smoothness, easy drinking, or nitro.
