I opted to get this instead of the regular Guinness, which ended up being a mistake. However, it makes me appreciate the original even more:
A - pours a murky black color into my snifter. Minimal head on a gentle pour. Looks thin, weak and watery. Nothing too exciting.
S - The smell (or lack thereof) is where things go south - I don't really smell anything. Very faint notes of rye malt and sugar.
T - Very watery stout. Malts, sugar, a bit of dark coffee, and faint hops for bitterness. Rather unpleasant aftertaste.
M - mediocre. It is just too watery and low on carbonation to have a good mouth-feel.
O- Will not be revisiting this one again ever. And I'll stick to Guinness on-tap.
