Near black. Smells like...well... a nitro stout. Tart, black malt notes on the palate. Kind of thin underneath of that. A little bit peanutty. Meh. Tmoney99 (14968) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2008

Nitro... Pitch black ale with a creamy, khaki head that never goes away. The aroma presents coffee and vanilla. I’m not picking up much, if any, chocolate. Light to medium-bodied and silky with expired carbonation. Sweet with mild burnt bitterness. Well-roasted, lightly sweet finish that dries out a little. gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2011
