3.35/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Had on tap at American Joe's in Short Hills NJ.
Appearance: Bartender poured it perfectly, letting it sit for a while after 3/4 was poured. yielded a thick rich creamy head that widdeled down to a small foam topping for the duration of the drinking. Very dark color, but somewhat translucent.
Smell: very tight on the nose, not a whole lot more than roasted malty and nutty, coffee and dark chocolate aromas.
Taste: Not too bad. Moderately full beer with more expressive tastes than aromas but much less diverse. Only molasses and dark malty flavors came through.
Mouthfeel: For a stout, its pretty thin. Until I got into beers the premonition about this beer was that it was a meal in a can when in actuality its thinner than some IPAs.. a little dissapointing when taking such note of its texture.
Drinkability: I'll continue to drink this beer. Its amazing with desserts and even by itself. Moderately priced and available almost everywhere.
Serving type: on-tap

3.88/5 rDev +11.5%

Served on draft at 43 degrees F (6 degrees C), using 35PSI of beer gas mix (75% nitrogen, 25% CO2), through stout faucet with restrictor plate.
Appearance (4.5/5): Initial pour generates a very active cascade of bubbles which fall downward along perimeter of the glass. As the cascade of bubbles completes, a very dense head of small nitro bubbles form a long lasting cream colored head. Body extremely dark, with no light transmittance through the glass.
Smell (3.5/5): Sweet malt and roasted aromas dominate. Pleasant, but not overwhelming.
Taste (4/5): Initial taste is bitterness on tip of tongue. Bitterness subsides as beer moves to back of mouth, where a strong but balanced roasted flavor prevails. Earthy aftertaste yields to delicate bitter flavor.
Mouthfeel (3.5/5): Guiness’ use of beergas makes for a unique experience for both head and mouthfeel. On first sip, the upper lip pushes through the dense cream head to discover a velvety mouthfeel. Carbonation levels are low, making this a very session able brew.
Overall (3.9/5): Captivating cascade of bubbles, delicious flavor, luscious mouthfeel.
