On tap. Pours brown with an off-white head. Milk cocoa and hazelnut in the aroma. Flavor is similar, but mixes a significant amount of coffee flavor in. Really nice and well-made, though a lighter stout.

On tap at the Hideout. Itís generally available on both CO2 and Nitrous. Iíve had it both ways; both are great, but I usually prefer it on CO2 as the harsher carbonation plays well against the sweetness of the hazelnut flavor - which is very noticeable in this beer. I canít seem to come in here without succumbing to at least one pint, and find it to be remarkably consistent. They really do this one well.
