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

Pours darn near opaque with only a slight hue around the edge when held to the light. The head is mocha colored creamy foam and it lasts and leaves grogeous lace. This beer looks amazing. The nose a mild bit of roasted malt, it promises something grainy and maybe a bit bitter. A light sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is where this one loses me. Weak flavors thin body. Watery and thin although soft and creamy. Weak coffee, roast that had potential but fizzled in it's lackluster approach to the palate. There's not really much alcohol in this one so it' wasn't
planning on being strong. And it's not. Earthy, hints of char light smooth and finishes slightly with a faint bitterness from roast . It had a slight imperfection in the mouthfeel as it was actually grainy at the back palate. An actual sensation of something faintly gritty.
