Pours black. A little watery. Rocky yellow head is gone within seconds.
Smell is sweet and malty. Reminds me of just straight up good craft beer. Light blended roastiness/chocolateyness.
Taste has a background of faint dark chocolate. Like something you'd get at a bakery. Hops are fairly present. Like a dulled down cascade type bitterness. Finishes totally dry like soda water, but not in a bad way that would indicate poor water quality.
Mouthfeel is medium-light and prickly. Drinkability is quite good, as the beer is both flavorful and accomodatable by almost any palate. A little bit for everybody: it's guinness so newbie drinkers will order it, it's dry enough to keep it drinkable, and it's flavorful enough to keep me interested.
Serving type: bottle
