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

341ml bottle from Calendar Pack bought in the Great Bear Pub Liquor store. Pours a dark brown with no head. Non-intense aroma is caramel, roasted malt, some coffee notes. Taste is dark fruits, roasted malt. Smokey, roasted malt aftertaste.

nearbeer (4923) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2016
650 ml. bottle, 5% abv and 30 IBU version. Pour is opaque ebony with a big foam that settles to a thin creamy disc. Nose is blackberry, raisin, waxy milk chocolate, graham cracker and a touch of espresso. Tastes the same with enough dark roast and acidity to almost keep the sweetness in check. Medium body has a pleasant, low-medium carbonation. Nice take on a sweet stout, but I could see how the lower IBU and abv version would probably be to the sticky-sweet side.

Headbanger (3880) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Sample 1/16/16 (Binnys Downers Grove)-Pours black with a small head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste of the same but this milk stout did not have the sweetness that most others have. This medium bodied brew was not bad, just a bit lacking.

Reeko (50) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
Pour black with no head. Aroma of vanilla and a bit of smoke. Taste is a bit sweet with a slight vanilla taste and a very creamy finish. Overall I was pleasantly surprised. Not a bad stout.

Dark brown pour. Aromas of root beer, anise, some red berry and cream. Similar flavours. A bit thin..but decent nonetheless.
