When you order a stout at One Drop, the bartender will as you: “Would you like it on CO2 or Nitro?” Not many breweries offer their core range stout on both, but once you’ve had this experience, you start wishing everyone would do it.
This stout has a latte coloured head and the aroma of a well made cappuccino but, from the first sip, it’s more reminiscent of a creamy hot chocolate - except cold, of course. The addition of cocoa paste and lactose give this beer a sweetness and thickness you wouldn’t otherwise expect in a sub-five percent stout. It blankets the tongue - more so when poured on nitro than CO2 - and leaves behind a rich aftertaste of dark chocolate with a hint of coffee and vanilla.
