Pour is a black from the can with a bone white head. It did that nitro thing with the head creeping up the inside of the glass. Aroma is some small amount of roasted malt but has some coffee to back it up. Flavor is thin but creamy with a decent roast and bitter dark chocolate. Decent beer that has more of a char malt mouth feel then it’s cousin from Ireland.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First impressions are always lasting. Crack goes the can, and since I am in a hotel, no glass....boo....light coffee aroma barely coming out of the can, with a touch of chocolate. Feels quite thin throughout the sip. Initial flavors of chocolate heavy light roasted coffee come through. The chocolate stays behind, with a bitter bakers chocolate tinge. I enjoy Belhaven’s other brews and this falls a bit short for me. Will do a follow up when proper glasses are available.
