Near black. Smells like...well... a nitro stout. Tart, black malt notes on the palate. Kind of thin underneath of that. A little bit peanutty. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro... Pitch black ale with a creamy, khaki head that never goes away. The aroma presents coffee and vanilla. I’m not picking up much, if any, chocolate. Light to medium-bodied and silky with expired carbonation. Sweet with mild burnt bitterness. Well-roasted, lightly sweet finish that dries out a little.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours dark dark brown but coming up short of stout like jet black with tan head. The aroma is mild with roasted malts and burnt malts. The taste begins with highly roasted malts and a hint of malt astringency that helps create a bigger roasty malt punch. At the same point in time the burnt malts run through the flavor creating a tasty mix along with a slight malt sweetness. The beer ends roast, burnt and on the dry side. The burnt malts really linger into the after taste.
