Ah, good ol' Guinness. This is the beer I credit as starting me towards the better beers in life.
Appearance: This is the one part of this beer I think no one can complain about. Absolutely beautiful. Deep black with a thick and creamy head, and the cascading effect is absolutely magnificent.
Smell: I reall wasn't able to smell much from this one. Little hints of roastiness and maltiness. No hops. Certainly not an unpleasant smell, just not significant.
Taste: Very thin. Creamy with some nice coffee and roasted flavors. In fact, that's about all that's there. Tastes quite good, however not a strong taste in the least.
Mouthfeel: I personally enjoy the nitro mouthfeel. It's a bit then, but the creaminess and texture of the carbonation is distinct from the CO2 and a nice change of pace.
Drinkability: Fantastically drinkable beer. Love to go with these for a session, the ABV is relatively low at 4.2, so you can have a ton and not be in too bad of shape. Given an unlimited amount of free guinness in an evening, i'm not sure when I'd stop.
Serving type: nitro-can

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.
