2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves great lace. Aroma and taste are mild, like almost dead on par with guinness, kind of disappointing aside from the look and the mouth of nitro.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Mills River brewery. Brown-black color with a medium thick creamy light beige head that recedes gradually to a dense film. Patchy lacing. Roast malt, coffee and chocolate in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, sweet malt and a bit of dark chocolate. The finish is sweet with a roasty malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

On nitro tap at the NC taproom.
Excellent creamy and very durable head. The body is not quite as dark as expected but by the finish is clear there’s an adequate load of dark roasted malts in this brew.
The body seems a touch light even for style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice nitro stout overall, basic and unoffending but refreshing. Pours a opaque red-black with a thick tan head. Smells a bit nutty with a hint of coffee as well. Taste is quite nutty and creamy, and a bit thin. Easy drinker. Had on tap at The Pour House in Chico.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got the beer for free when I ordered two beers at random and asked which was which. As he responded ’this one is the Nitro" I laughed at myself and admitted that it was a stupid question. Smooth and quiet. The nitro neuters the beer and makes it less of what it could be. Of course it is better than a Guinness but the nitro seems to lower beers to a common denominator, or if you spell it wrong a DEMONator which would be a good beer name. Nice nose trying to come through..
