Poured from can into Guiness pint.

A - GodDAMN the beauty of a nitro stout is unreal. Turbulent Black and milkshake whirlpool slowly working it's way to the top, then leveling off with a laser-beam divide between black black and late-colored head.

S - Malt, chocolate, Guinness.

T - Typical nitro stout plus chocolate. A bit drier than Guinness, and a bit more bitter too.

M - Creamy, full, but not heavy. Dry film left after swallowing.

O - Not something I buy often, but if I see this while out and looking for something like this, it's something I have and will continue to enjoy many times.

Poured a beautiful inky brown with a thick tan head. Just gorgeous to look at. The scent is subdued chocolate and cocoa and the taste follows the scent. This is more subdued than I would expect given it's appearance with just a hint of coffee. The mouth feel is cream goodness. Overall a very pleasurable experience. Would have rated it higher if the taste match the gorgeous appearance.

A smooth and solid black appearance with a 4 inch beige head. It's got a strong chocolate milk laced with alcohol aroma which would be a lot nicer if the alcohol level was lowered. Initial taste is of chocolate milk and a healthy dose of alcohol. Some roasted coffee flavor follow and lingers in the after taste. I much prefer the second half of this flavor profile. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied, just as one should expect from a nitro can. Overall, the strong alcohol presence in this one severely limits its potential for me. I know I should like it, everyone else seems to, but I just do not get what everyone else is getting. Had it a couple times and each experience has been the same, whether in the can or om tap.
