3.8/5 rDev +2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Serving Type: 1pt 6fl oz non-nitro bottle
Appearance: Still pours that nice dark black colour that lets no light through, but no head
Smell: Light roasted smell w/ a touch of caramel and chocolate. A little sweet much beyond the caramel and chocolate but I can't put my finger on it
Taste/Mouthfeel: Goes down easy w/ a smooth yet crisp bite to it. A burnt flavour that almost dominates the beers taste(it does dominate if the beer is to cold)but has a touch of caramel sweetness. A touch of bitterness at the end(lemon?)ends the beer w/ a slight down note.
Drinkability: Although not as smooth as a nitro-can it is still a very enjoyable beer. Moreso than the traditional Guinness(at least the "now" standard Guinness)
Serving type: bottle

Can poured into a pint glass
I love the cascade of taupe bubbles as they rise to the top of of this dark brown classic stout. A beautiful, thick creamy taupe lid caps the beer. Lacings on the side curtain the beer glass.
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and sweetness
Smooth, sweet roasted malt taste. No bitter aftertaste but the linger of the malt.
The lack of carbonation is the surprise of this stout and makes it quite drinkable, glass,after glass.
What's there not to like about a well poured glass of Guinness Stout? Oh my goodness, my Guinness!

Not normally into higher end beers but this one is perfect. Head is thick and creamy. Goes down SMOOTH. It's served closer to room temp and tastes better that way. I've bought a 6 pack before but cold out of the fridge just isn't anywhere nearly as good. Best by far of all stouts I've ever had.
Serving type: on-tap
