Nice looking pour with a giant head. Classic black and tan. Aroma is a faint smell of chocolate milk. Taste of bitter chocolate powder with coffee tones and chicory. Mineral presence is evident in the hard water metallic aftertaste on the tongue. Mouth is creamy and thin. Overall a decent example of a milk stout. Although this could be sweeter and heavier for the style, It is very drinkable and pretty tasty. Nothing really offensive or outstanding, but a good stout and great value.

Appearance and mouthfeel is where this version of this beer really shines; the flavor is clearly lacking when compared with the bottled version. The nitro can makes for a picturesque, super creamy head with excellent retention and strong lacing; cascading bubbles and a rich black color. The aroma is lightly chocolaty with a subtle roast character and that’s about it. Not particularly aromatic.

The flavor of the nitro can leaves something to be desired; things are smoothed out to the point of blandness; very light taste with a pleasant milk chocolate note and mild sweetness. Not much else; definitely not as tasty as the bottle, which I feel to be a little overrated to begin with. Would love to try this beer on tap sometime.

Love the creamy mouthfeel of this one, however–it’s positively silken. Almost worth drinking just for that and for watching the pretty picture that unfolds when you pour it.
