3.73/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle purchased in a sixer at a local liquor store for about $7.

Black color with a chunky beige head - not towering like from the tap but respectible and appetizing-looking.

Smells decent - quite bitter with some roasty malt aroma. Nothing out of the ordinary for the style.

First sip had me skeptical. The bitterness was the first thing to hit my tongue, followed by a twang of alcohol. A few sips in, however, and as the beer warmed a bit, the beer seemed to gain balance. This one got better and better as it went and by the end of the glass I was satisfied and even impressed.

This is far superior to the Guinness Draught, and obviously a classic within its style.
