Darker tan head than Guinness draught, and retention considerably less impressive. Very similar dark red/brown color with beautiful clarity
Subdued aroma, but a smoky, malty nose
Intense malty/bitter/sour triad keep everything in balance. Finishes very bitter and slightly dry (roasted barley?). Late sourness on the side of the tongue - maybe not the freshest example.
Mouthfeel showed a fairly full body, with minimal alcohol warming and no astringency. Not creamy.
An intensely flavored stout, and while more interesting on the palate in its flavors, less smooth on the tongue. I want to mix this beer with Guinness Draught - I think that blend might be better than either of them individually.
