Enjoying a Guinness on St. Patty's Day, is there anything better?!?!

I love the sound the nitro can makes when opened. Pours black/brown with a tan head, but then the brown magically rushes to the bottom and the black rises until it's as dark as midnight. The head is dark tan and remains there throughout the course of the entire beer. You can smell the roasted malts and taste them even more! Incredibly smooth with a delicious aftertaste, but very filling. You gotta love this beer.

I've had this beer on tap, out of the can, and out of the bottle. Obviously the tap dominates, but the nitro-can is a close second. As for the bottle, don't waste your time...The can is where it's at!

**Edit** (3/17/06) - Two years since my initial review and I enjoy Guinness even more than i used to. As my palate becomes more trained towards different feels and flavors, I have found that I really enjoy Guinness Draught. The appearance and mouthfeel are superior, second to none...Truly a unique creation and highly enjoyable.

Serving type: nitro-can
