Nitro tap delivers a lively dark ale with small white head. Chocolate aroma with a sweet malt caramel cocoa mix. Tiny carbonation bubbles and nice sweet short finish deliver this carton to the door.

I had it on tap. It pours very dark brown. The aroma was roasty and coffee. The taste was also very roasty with coffee flavor and roasted peanuts. There was also a nice milky and sugary sweetness. It was very smooth and balanced.

On nitro at the Irish mile..Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, sweet malts, caramel, and lactose. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body, with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, roasty, slightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty stout that is extdemely sessionable for the style.

Pour from a growler is a nice black body with a light tan head. Aroma is a nice coffee with hints of chocolate. Taste is light with a little sweetness upfront that gives way to a taste of coffee with a little bitterness at the end. Leaves a dry after taste.
