look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- Pours dark brown, leads to black in the glass with a slightly off-white bubbly head.

S- Hint of roasty malts and bready malts. Slight bitterness in the aroma too.

T- Similar to classic Guinness, with a little more maltiness in the body.

M- More of a standard stout feel than compared to the nitro Guinness. This one is slightly oxidized, which is to be expected based on the age, but my notes from years ago indicate medium body.

O- Clearly this one is passed it's prime, but drinking it again, along with my notes from before concur that this was a pretty good beer and an improvement on standard Guinness.
