Nitro tap at the Gilded Otter. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. Caramel and toffee, just a hint of young coconut (which I wonder if I would have detected withoun knowing there’s coconut in there. Body is a bit thin due to the nitro… I really wish they’d just put them on a regular tap. Lightly sweet with a nice roast character. Good coffee notes and some caramel. Finishes with a nice roasty bitterness and just a touch of astringency, and a little bit more sweetness.
