Beer forms a 2 finger head in my guinness pint glass. Dark black in color, the head sits for a while but is much more pillowy compared to the nitrogen version of this brew. Nose is straight forward and simple; primarily smoked malt and molasses. Taste is sweet up front with some bitterness coming through in the finish. Ample carbonation over powers my ability to really taste this one. Full bodied brew that you can drink pretty quickly. I wasn't thoroughly impressed as I knew this beer was a marketing gimmick but it actually was a bit better than I expected. I wouldn't turn down a free one (which is how acquired this) but I wouldn't buy it either.
