Perhaps the most drinkable and pleasing of the commonly available beers on tap at most restaurants and bars. Guinness manages to be pretty consistant, with an excellent appearance, dark and thick, with a vigorous head and the wonderful nitro cascade. The smell is just average, having little in the way of distinctive aromas, just a basic stout smell and a little less fragrant than some of the better stouts. The taste is well above average, nothing to write home about and not as creamy as I like my stouts, but there is a distinctive flavor of hops that is pleasing. The mouthfull is good and full, what you would expect of a stout. A very drinkable beer. Pretty much my staple in bars that don't have large selections of "good" beers.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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.
