Nitro pour. Creamy brown head. Aroma of roast and caramel. Taste is roasty, kind of funny burnt. I don’t think it would be as odd if it was not nitro, but I tend to not like the more watery texture of a nitro pour. I’d like to try this with CO2 and see what it’s like then.

Tap at the brewery. Black and thick with a creamy tan head. Dry roasted grain aroma with a touch of chocolate peaking through. Nice roasted grain, chocolate taste and hints of coffee. Body is nice and creamy with a little dryness. Well done brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Draft @ Naked City- dense black with creamy tan head; served pretty cold and creamy on first sip; nutty roast and creamy milk chocolate; silky smooth and spot on for the style; doesn’t fall into a super sweet mess; roasty, chocolate, light and smooth; good stuff; I wonder if my hard liver beers are ready yet?

Draught. Poured black with a thick beige head. *this was a nitro cask. Aroma was a light roast malt, with a nice bit of coffee. Roast flavour, with a lot of espresso coffee notes. A good bit of hop in the finish.
