Great classic beer. I wish it had more hoppy flavor. Although it's pitch black and high in calories the taste is light. Almost too light. I still love Guinness but I always crave more. The mouthfeel of nitro beers is always great but in my opinion Guinness is a little watery. Personally I still think it's better than Murphy's.

This one looks just like the original Guinness Draught for the most part, pitch black but somehow not very heavy-looking, the beauty being in the head. It's tight, creamy and compact, a tight tan crown just more than a full finger in height. It leaves exceptionally creamy lacing in thick rings and some heavy spotting between.
The aroma is a dark chocolate/toffee blend with a bit of char and some coffee, but with an almost burnt note to it.
The taste is similar, though it eases off on most of the astringency of the original. It's thin for a stout, but not as much given that it's in the original traditional, less monstrous style.
The feel of course offers lots of creaminess on the tongue and it flows like silk. It does have that thinness as well, though again style is in mind and it's not intended to be any kind of imperial stout. There is a slight grainy astringency in the finish.
