look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

Serving type: nitro-bottle

Classic - Bet you didn't know that it's fewer calories and less alcohol (4.2%)
Truly a session beer. When I lived in Ireland, when you went out w your buds you were in for the number of pints * the number of buddies in the group. Go would w six, you were in for six.

A: What's to fuss with? The original nitro vertical pour. Only Left Hand Nitro does it better.
Great head, lasting and lacing, beautiful near black body. What's not to love?

S - Malt, roast, Liffey quays, docks and bulkheads, salt, peat fires.

T- Follows smell but sweeter, at Bewleys tea and biscuits, and a walk on St Stephan's Green with an open bakery on a wet spring morning.

F- A bit thin, but other wise fine. Clear, clean finish, great food beer, great Black in black and tans!

Must try and must mix into blacks & Tans. Pour your IPA or any ale and then top coatt with Guinness!
