Pours a very dark black. When I hold it up to the light, I see nothing but black.
Thick creamy head, dissipates slowly to ¼ inch. Some lacing.
Smells of smoky malt and a hint of coffee and dark chocolate.
A creamy malt and smoke taste. Hints of dark chocolate, and a smoky aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is silky and creamy, very watery, and very little carbonation.
A nice stout. But not one I would seek out.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

Guinness draught 6pk bottles $8.49 (OH)
11.2 oz brown bottle wrapped with black plastic, no freshest by date.
brewed in Dublin pasteurized stout. poured into a pint glass.
pours very dark almost black, however my phone flashlight is pretty weak but it still lights up the entire glass. leaves a two finger tan head that ends up as one finger. leaves very little lacing scattered on the glass.
i smell hints of coffee, toasted grain, roasted malt and caramel.
the taste is more robust than the smell but that being said its good but is lacking some power in its flavor. i taste very little chocolate, mainly a coffee taste followed by a roasted, toasted bitter hop taste.
the mouth feel is super light. almost lighter than water if that's possible. i know its 4.2 abv and low in cals. however i want a stout, not a bud light. leaves the mouth a bit bitter and dry.
overall its not a bad beer, however i prefer a thicker, stronger, more robust stout. i was introduced to Guinness a long time ago with Irish car bombs. but now i ask for an English car bomb. (i find no difference between draught in nitro cans or bottles)

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.
