Almost positive ths was served on nitro, yet it retained flavor!! Very smooth body, coal black, roasty nose. This was less roasty than it was chocolatey.

Large and small bubbled head. Cascade galore in aroma, orangey, grapefruity, and smoke. What an interesting combo! Very IPA-like. Flavors are herbal, minty?, chewy and round; no burntness. This is rather chewy and soft and a very unusual example of a stout. Is this the pale ale with brown food coloring?
