Poured out a traditional Guinness black into a tulip pint glass. Tan, foamy head that faded fairly quickly, leaving some nice lacing and a film. The brew smells of toasted malts -- it's pleasant, but one-dimensional. And the taste doesn't keep up. Not unpleasant by any means, but lacking in any real depth or complexity. The mouthfeel is thin, especially for a stout, although that does contribute to the fact that this is a very drinkable beer.
Overall, it's far and away better than the thinned-out, bland, made-for-the-masses stuff that comes in a can with a widget. But there are much better stouts out there.
