On tap at Founders. The pour is a beautiful black with a nice tan nitro head. There isn't much of a lace, but the nitro head is beautiful. The aroma is really nutty. There is a nice roasted malt to it, and it almost carries a bit of peanut butter to it. The flavor is really nutty. There is a light dry roast on the finish, but it's light. There is a lot of peanut butter and a roast, just like the aroma. The mouth feel is really thin for a nitro, with a good carbonation but it falls off the tongue quickly. The aftertaste is lingeringly nutty, but disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Founders. Pitch black pour with a thick, creamy head that just doesnít move. I always love the appearance of nitro beers. The aroma is just straight up hazelnut and coffee beans. Smells amazing. Tastes the same with a huge creaminess from the nitro. No sweetness. Dry and bitter in the finish. Medium body. Really good beer but some sweetness would really help this.

Notes from trip home in April. Draft. Pours a dark brown. Aroma is sweet coffee and vanilla. Taste is smooth coffee goodness.

Nitro draft to taster at Founders. Looks good; settles into a fairly opaque dark brownish black with creamy light beige head and a hint of translucency at the right angle. Smells good too, dark malt, dark chocolate, and hazelnut. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Nce and smooth on the palate. Damn tasty, especially for being 4.2%.

Tap @ Founders: Nitro-tap produces a beer that looks like traditional Guinness on draught... Beautiful, bold, fully opaque black body with a silky, long-lasting, ecru & leathery head that gives me foam mustaches with each sip. Lovely aroma of fresh hazelnut coffee beans, ground & milled oats, faint roast, & a milk chocolate-y sweetness that balances the beans perfectly. Taste is similar, tasting like an iced hazelnut coffee, black, but with the addition of some creamy chocolate that adds a nice little touch of sweetness. Roasted barley & notes of toasted oat flakes in the peripherals, but this is a hazelnut coffee bomb. Very nice mouth feel, likely thanks to the nitro, smooth & creamy. I was one of the few who liked Frangelic Mountain Brown (since I love hazelnut) but this take it to a whole other level, itís even better as a creamy nitro stout.

Pours a dark mahogany with a foamy, long-lasting white head. This is very similar to the Founderís Oatmeal Stout, but itís sweeter and has a hazelnut coffee aroma and flavor in addition to the roasted malts. Goes down smooth. Excellent.

Nitro pour. Aroma is hazelnut, coffee, roasted malt, surprisingly robust for a 4.2% brew. Appearance is what you expect from a low abv stout, dark dark dark brown, great nitro head of light brown. Taste is nice, light but again surprisingly robust. Hazelnut is prevalent, the other characteristics fall back but itís light. Mouthfeel is great, the nitro helps and the flavor hangs. Overall, this is quite impressive for a low abv beer.
