A- Finger thick head, chewy-looking and khaki-colored. The liquid is pitch black, opaque and coffee-like.
S- A bit of a disappointment for me as far as aroma. There's some sweet malt aroma, some dry roasted malt and a curious bitterness and slight sour mash smell.
T- The taste is a big improvement from the nose. I got sweet molasses and malt first, then a hint of hops, and dry, coffee-like dark roasted malts. The aftertaste is the always desired and delicious baker's chocolate.
M- Dry bitter finish, light medium body, good balance of sweet and bitter. There's more effervescence than I'd normally expect from a stout, so that was a bit of a drawback.
Still, this beer really surprised me. I remember strongly disliking Guiness in my younger days, but this beer here is a very enjoyable stout. If not for the disappointing nose, I'd say this beer was great.
