Cool idea and cool poor technique. I loves texture of a nitro stout so this is going well so far. Pours a huge off-white creamy head atop an opaque body.Nose of chocolate granules and cold coffee in a filter. Flavour is slightly thin and overly sweet but the smoothness is wonderful. They should aim for more of an ashy and coffee front and the texture will take this into the 4* realm. Nice.

(355ml bottle) Purchased at Liquor Plus Douglas - part of the Parallel mixed box. Pours a large brown head and a black body. Nose has hints of ash. Very smooth, some roastiness and filtered cold coffee. Good. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

N2 version: Charred oak nose. Mahogany, thin creamy tan head. Sweet coffee, mulberries, and raisins. Full body, smooth and creamy. Maybe a bit too sweet, but quite enjoyable if only having one pint.

Bottle. Solid creamy and sweet stout with a big roasted barley. Milk chocolate and good roasted malt pair well and just a touch of lactose gives this a good sessionable sweetness. overall, this is a solid session stout. A easy drinker.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
341 ml bottle from a six-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a Guinness Draught-labeled nonic pint glass, yet another thrift store discovery. Pours a rich, deep chestnut brown with a puffy, mocha-brown cap that leaves a few lace rings. The aroma is somewhat savory and most definitely toasty, while the flavor strikes a careful balance of milky sweetness and roasted savoriness, with a gentle current of cocoa throughout. Smooth, creamy drinking, a touch chewy, and the flavor diminishes easily and pleasantly with each sip. Of course, being a sweet stout, this wouldn’t put anyone’s tastebuds in a twist - it’s a style that’s so innately gentle, I found it a bit difficult to find descriptors other than "toasty, sweet, and creamy". Nonetheless, it’s a friendly new beer experience; a very relaxed and pleasant winter beverage.
