Sampled over the weekend at the Rogue Ale House. A super beer. Talk about appearance and palate to the max. So smooth and as close to a guiness appearance as I have seen in a long time. Smooth roasted flavors were another fantastic part.

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.

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.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a black body. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee. The taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate and black coffee. The texture is soft and smooth. Excellent.

rosenbergh (8548) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2015
Draught at the Sierra Nevada, Chico, CA.
Dark reddish brown colour with a big creamy light tan head. Mild roasted malt, mild milk, sweetness and mild bitterness in the aroma. Roasted malt, mild sweetness and mild bitterness in the flavour. Very Guinness like but tastier. A bit thin though.

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..

snoworsummer (3243) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Draft at Regal Beagle. Pours dark brown with a super smooth beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like cold coffee, nutty malt, burnt toast, light licorice. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted malt, burnt coffee, nutty, toasted.

[2/14/15] Draught at Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room in Berkeley. Dark brown with a creamy cream-colored head. Aroma and flavor are roasty with a bit of coffee. Nitro mouthfeel, a bit watery. OK.
