That’s what we’re dealing with during this review of Perrin Brewing Company’s (the pride of Comstock Park, Michigan!) Nitro Black. If you’ve ever had a Guinness or a Boddingtons, then you know what nitrogen does to a beer’s texture. And if you’ve had anything like the canned version of Firestone Walker’s Velvet Merlin, then you know what a surge pour is all about.
Here’s some more info in case you have no clue what we’re talking about…
Nitrogenated: A nitro beer contains more nitrogen gas and less carbon dioxide (CO2) gas compared to a traditional beer. The foam created by nitro bubbles is thicker and lasts longer. Also, because there is less CO2 in the beer, carbonation is minimal, paving the way for a velvety smooth texture.
And here are a few words about this beer taken from the Perrin website:
Nitro Black (5.8% ABV) A smooth and creamier mouthfeel than traditional Black Ale. A light body with notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. Nitro Black is available on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans at the Pub, with West Michigan distribution to follow.
We’ve had a few of these nitrogenated surge pour beers over the years. When they’re done right, they are mighty delicious. To find out if Nitro Black made it onto the delicious nitrogenated surge pour beer list, click play on the following video:
