3.4/5 rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Served from a 443ml can to a English pint glass
A: I love the look of a Guinness in a pint glass. Nice head about a finger thick, thanks to the nitro widget. Good lacing as well. Black but not completely. Deep red hues are visible when held up to the light
S: Very slight roasted malts and a dark coffee smell.
T:Very watery. The roasted malts and dark coffee scents are slightly present on the tongue followed up by a moderate hop bitterness.
M: This beer shines shines in this department. Partially due to the nitro tab in the can. It has a really nice creamy head and goes down very nicely. Very drinkable.
Overall: Nothing astounding and there is definitely better in the stout department but I like it. I drink it from time to time. Its a little bit over hyped but its still pretty decent for a macro stout.
Serving type: bottle

2.84/5 rDev -18.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Looks amazing. Thick creamy tan head that lasts forever. Appears black in the glass but slightly translucent with some red noted as well. Unfortunately, looks can be decieving.
Smell: Roasted malt, but its very mild and I'm not picking up much else.
Taste: Same as the nose. Roasted malt flavor, slightly bittersweet, but zero hops.
Mouthfeel: How can a beer that looks so good in the glass be so watery? Thin and boring.
Overall: I'll get this once and a while if there's no other options on tap, because this is still better than the BMC's of the world. Not by much though. I would like to try this in Ireland sometime to compare.
Serving type: nitro-can
