Beer gas (nitrogen blend) is optional for any beers, most widely used with stouts. Produces the classic creamy, cascading look, but somewhat dulls the taste say detractors.

Personal preference, that. I never use nitro on my stouts and they are extremely enjoyable just the same...

Cheers!

I really miss the carbonic bite of C02. Nitro stouts just taste too blah to me
