look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Solid black with brown edging, full tan head, fading very slowly. Lacing of the first order.

S - Full roast malt, tobacco and coffee, chocolate nib.

T - Following the nose, with a gradual fade to bitterness. Slight minerality in the close, with a bitterness that hangs around on your palate until it is reset.

M - Silky and smooth, fairly light, all told. The dry close is mild but persistent.

O - An old favorite; full and tasty. If it is fresh and well handled, this shows why Guinness is stout for so many people.
