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.

Way better than the draught version, the carbon dioxide gives it a stronger and fuller taste than its nitrogen counterpart. This is closer to the original stout that Arthur Guinness would have produced first day.
