From the tap. Heavy nitro characters surprised me a bit; poured more like a stout with fine, thick head; lots of retention. Roasted coffee bean aroma, some vanilla. Sweet, dark malt taste with mild caramel to finish. Some lingering, but not heavy bitter coffee which is good.

22oz bottle. Pours black into snifter, 2 finger head fades fast. Nose is vanilla, coffee beans. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Needs more body. Taste is big dark coffee up front, vanilla notes, chocolate syrup. Finish is bitter smokey coffee which doesn’t last long. Doesn’t leave an impression. Good, but not special.
