Pitch black with a creamy light tan head. Smells like fresh coffee. Tastes like coffee pretty much as well, and while it is very bold and bitter it's incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Compared to the Guinness Draught it is bigger and better in essentially every way, most noticeably with regards to taste and mouth feel.

Pours nice and dark brown, settles in the glass black with a light tan head.

Smells of molasses and cream notes.

Taste has notes of bitter chocolate, molasses, end has a metallic quality to it which I felt was a bit of an off flavor.

If the metallic aftertaste wasn't present I would have rated this quite a bit higher.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth and creamy.

This is my go to beer. Smooth feel and taste and low carb count so you can drink all night long.

More earthy and nutty than regular Guinness. It's chocolatey with dark fruit and a mildly tart finish.

Better than the original Guinness, but I have the same complaint about it looking way better than it tastes.
