Packaged in the 11.2oz nitro bottle. There is no information given about freshness, but some nutriant info is given, and there is the cool widget inside the bottle. When the cap is popped, you hear the nitrogen bubbling through the beer. This beer is one of the more impressive looking beers out there. As it was poured into my Bell's pint glass, a creamy head instantly formed, with nitrogen bubbles cascading to the bottom of the glass. After settiling a bit, a creamy tan half inch head remains throughout the whole experience. The beer is very dark, hints of brown are visible when held to the light, but this brew is pretty opaque. Aroma presents a creamy roastyness, with a mild sour side. Not a whole lot of flavor. Dry, faint hints of roasted malt are present. There is a slight sourness to this beer, according to charlie papazian, guiness adds a bit of pasteurized sour beer to each batch of guiness. Overall a pretty bland tasting beer. The mouthfeel is decently thick, as a stout should be, but something seems to be missing, maybe not thick enough? This is an enjoyable brew, but unfortunately it costs about $8.50 for a sixer of 11.2oz bottle. When I go to the store and I see small bottles of guiness for the same price as regular bottle of Bell's double cream stout, I choose the Bell's. If this were cheaper, I'd like it more, but it's just not worth it.

Had this beer in a nitro can, after having on tap the day prior. I have to say I came into the can beer with high expectations. The appearance looks good with the cascading effect in the glass, the smell is pretty typical stout, roasted malts with hint of coffee/chocolate. Then I got to the taste....yuck! Im not sure how they call that a stout but it is so watery and bland its borderline just gross! Not too happy with this beer by Guinness
