Appearance: Noticeable darker than Guinness Draught. Looks like coffee, Coke, and chocolate syrup. A nice amount of foam to begin with but can end up looking a bit flat compared to Draught style.
Smell: Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Also a nice amount of maltiness and sweetness. Very pleasant.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Also tastes like coffee and chocolate, and warms you up as such. No carbonation. Very bitter, which might be off-putting to a lot of people but I find it enjoyable. Complexity of beer changes as it warms and the coffee/malt levels shift a bit...more coffee when cold, more malt when warm. Nice.
Drinkability: Not much to say, other than that it's a very good beer to drink.
Overall: Better than Draught, at least when Draught comes in a bottle. Just a stronger, less carbonated, darker version of its famous brother.
Serving type: bottle
