I don't care what anyone says, I love Guinness and it really started me liking beers and introduced me to craft beers.
The appearance is like no other. The cascading effect is a work of art, truly to be witnessed. Dark black, solid head that never dissipates.
Smell is roasted coffee and dark bitter chocolate.
Taste has a bitter aftertaste. Dark chocolate that reminds me of easter for some reason (?), burnt coffee. Great flavor!
Mouthfeel to me is perfect. Smooth smooth smooth, goes down super easy. If served slightly warmed (not straight from the fridge) it's perfect.
Overall, definitely one of my favorite stouts. Easy to get on tap everywhere. I don't care if this is considered
"stout lite", this is my go-to when I don't see a great variety at a bar and I love it!
Serving type: on-tap
