Poured from a can into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Pours almost black with a thick tan head that stays all the way through the beer. Watch the head cascade and settle. Appearance is always one of the best things in a nitro beer.
Smell, on the other hand, is almost non-existent. Can smell a slight bit of chocolate and a bit of the aluminum can. Meh. The taste picks up a little. Sweet chocolate is very pronounced. That accounts for most of the flavor. It is nice though. Obviously a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A bit thick compared to some other nitro can stouts.

I would like to try this in a bottle, because I feel like the nitro can is holding it back in smell and taste.

Poured from nitro-can into sweetwater snifter.

A-pours a nice chocolately brown falling into a dark brown, almost black. Has a nice light brown head.

S-smells a bit dull but has some nice hints of coffee and roasted malts.

T-A bit of coffee, and maybe a hint of chocolate. Definitely roasty. Just like the smell a bit dull. Tastes like a much more flavorful guiness.

MF-Nice and creamy. Could have a little more to it but still pretty nice. Doesn't leave much feel afterward though.

O-This is a nice beer. Very good for the price. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good stout, but definitely not getting the "double chocolate" in it.
