Draft at the brewery: Pours black with a thin off-white nitro head. Aroma is light chocolate and nitro creamy vanilla aroma. Flavor is lightly malty with moderate roastiness, light chocolate notes and a really good creamy body, only slightly sweet and not too much lactose that it overpours the beer. Very well balanced.

Draft @ KLCC Microbrew Festival: Pours a dark brown with a large, creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and mocha. Flavor wasn’t overly deep, but had solid coffee and chocolate tones complimented by a light roasty feel. An easy drinker.
