A: Got it on tap, so the appearance could have probably been better if I poured it. But, solid black with some ruby edges. Thin tan head with no retention.
S: Roasted malts, dry smell. Traces of chocolate and coffee.
T: Noticing the differences from standard Guinness. I pick up more of a milk chocolate note in the flavor. Some ash, coffee but not a strong flavor of roasted barley that I'm used to from Guinness.
M: A little watery, and has a dry astringency to it.
D: Eh. Guinness is one of my favorites, and this wasn't an improvement. It was fun to drink, but I guess I expected a better result. It isn't bad, but not as good as the original.
Serving type: on-tap
