MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This nitrogenated Stout has as much fruitiness going on as it has mild chocolate flavors.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sticks to the darkness.
-Mouthfeel is excessively creamy. Its one of those beers whose body relies nearly exclusively on the nitrogen.
-The finish is lightly acidic.
-This is somewhat of a Guinness copy.
-Even though this is heavy on the nitro presence, this made the body much more appreciable than their cask offerings that day.

On tap at the brewpub, as Nitro Stout.

Keg, as Canterbury Nitro Stout. Appearance is almost black, opaque, one finger creamy white head, looks really good. Aroma of dry roast, dark fruit, malts. Smooth in the mouth, roasted malt taste, short finish. Ok stout, doesnt taste as good as it looks.

Cask, both regular and nitro @ the foundry. Aroma is roasty malt, liquorice, molasses, caramel and light fruity notes. Flavour is dry, quite bitter, lighter roast then expected by colour and aroma, some liquorice, hops and ash. Nice. The nitro is a bit creamier and sweeter. +.1 for nitro
