Who's been drinking this

Much better on nitro than I remember out of the can, but then again you expect a kind of flatness on nitro. Pleasant, sweet, caramel, and very creamy. Definitely a beer-mustache kind of glass. Twenty ounces disappeared in a hurry (which given its strength, might be dangerous)!
Nitro Draft at Malt & Vine, Redmond
Hazelnut, roasted malt, chocolate (in that order) on the palate. Sweet but not heavy/funky finish. A bit more bittering hops would have cleaned up the finish a bit which I would like, but they due market this as an ode to malts so it accomplishes it's goal. Sits between a stout and a true scotch ale flavor wise, pretty yummy though!
Can at Home
Like drinking an opened growler of a better Scotch Ale on the second day. The basic flavor is fine, but everything feels unpleasantly flat out of the can.
Like rum and coke, minus the rum. And a little flat.
