Had this beer on tap at the Sierra Tap House.
The appearance of this beer is exactly what you would expect from a good Irish stout. Black as the night with a dense creamy head, and a slight reddish hue when held up to the light. The taste is roasty, malty, and clean with a dry finish. I love you Guinness ... But Sierra Nevada raised the bar!

Had on tap at Final Gravity Taproom in Roseville, CA
Appearance - Pours deep, dark brown with dark ruby highlights. The head is cream colored, a half finger thick and shows great retention. Nice lace is good stick.
Smell - Hits on strong dark roasted malt character; coffee with hints of sweet chocolate.
Taste - Less flavor in the mouth than on the nose. Subtle coffee character, with even lesser notes of chocolate. The finish is quick and clean.
Mouthfeel - Light in body, but creamy. Exceptional smoothness. Classic nitro character.
Overall - If Sierra set out to make a Guinness Draught clone, they can give themselves a handshake. Decidedly Sierra Nevada twist? Where? Did I miss something? Honestly, I'd rather have a Guinness.

On tap at O'Brien's
A: Pours black with a super creamy and resilient tan head. Sheets of lacing down the glass.
S: Not a ton going on here. Very faint aroma with a touch of coffee and wet earth.
T: Again, very faint. Tough to pick out what's really going on here. A touch of roasted malt and coffee with the barest trace of dark chocolate. I feel like the nitro actually hurts this beer more than helps it. The flavors just aren't bold enough.

Enjoyed at Flanny’s inside a shaker pint.
As is expected from the nitro tap, tan bubbles cascade downward beautifully, becoming one full inch of dense, creamy, frothy foam that goes nowhere. The liquid, however, actually looks a little thin — cola-brown with plenty of amber highlights poking through.
Sweet roasted oats in the nose. Lots of oatmeal, smooth milk chocolate, a little toast, and substantial earthiness, like soil.
The flavor is found wanting. It has the bitterness of burnt bread and some soil flavor, but not much of either. A very subtle prune note emerges after much searching.
The body, however, is very thick and creamy — the thin appearance tricked me. Medium-full and thick, with very subtle tingles of carbonation.
Meh. If this was made to mirror Guinness, Sierra Nevada did so in a way that the reflection looks fuzzier than the original. Not enough flavor here.

On nitro tap at The Surly Goat in West Hollywood, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light, tasty, and very easy to drink.
