Sampled from nitro at the brewery. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts with dark grains and a dry bite. Flavor has more of an earthy dark grain note supported by roasted malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
4.5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub in Red Wing, Minnesota. Consumed on 12-13-14. On nitro. Pours dark brown with a moderate amount of beige head. Nice nitro head and lacing. Dark chocolate and coffee scents. Pleasant but ordinary stout aroma. Milky, creamy, dark chocolate flavors; chocolate cake and brownie. Really nice flavor. Typical thin and “undercarbonated” nitro beer palate effects. Quite tasty, though I don’t think nitro does most beer much of a favor in terms of flavor.
