Big creamy head, almost black body. Creamy texture with roasted malt flavor. Doesn't really taste any better out of the bottle versus the can. But if it's on sale like it is around St. Patricks Day, you really can't feel bad about getting some. Of course this isn't the best Dry Stout out there, but it is probably the most sessionable beer I have had and if you are watching your calorie intake it's not bad.
Sure, it is not the most impressive beer and not one to brag about on this site, but it's fun to drink and not offensive on the palate. It's worth the price.

500 ml can served chilled into a pint glass. Received as a gift. While familiar with this beer as it is often the best option on tap when out at chain restaurants, finally sat down to review this one in detail.
Appearance - Midnight black, with just over a finger of off-white foam that is in no hurry to go anywhere. Other than that the beer is dark enough that you can't see through it and as you drink the beer, some nice foamy rings of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell - Coffee aroma, with some roasty malts. Not a lot else in there but it is well executed.
Taste - Thick dense, coffee flavor, with some caramel sweetness particularly in the foam. Although as I've experienced the craft beer culture in a little more depth, the taste and mass of Guinness no longer seems what it once was, if anything the beer is a touch on the watery side.
Mouthfeel - While a "heavier" beer, the composition is rather watery once you've experienced Imperial Stouts and American Double Stouts. Nonetheless the feel is dense and the texture is very smooth.
Overall - While not quite as good as I had remembered it, Guinness remains a go to option on establishments with limited tap selection and a fine beer to consume in a pinch.
