The nitro can was created, I would guess, for looks and feel. It certainly succeeds in look as the transformation of this beer, as it enters the glass is both beautiful and entertaining. The head it builds is thick and creamy and congeals into a solid unit. The color is black, plain and simple.
The scent is lacking as some charred malt is present but lost for the most part.
The taste is toasty, charred malt with a back end of sweet creaminess. Problem is as good as it tastes, it's simply not tasty enough. The whole taste gets lost in a wash of watery finish and feel. The nitro seems to take away the very essence of the beer and depletes, what I always felt, was a very good stout.
Serving type: nitro-can

This beer is a really dark and heavy beer. At least it was that way for myself. I enjoyed this beer, but it is also one of those beers that I have to be in the mood for at the same time. The aroma was a good aroma. Their is a lot of head with this beer. Wich I do not mind that much. But for a dark beer it was not that bad.

3.88/5 rDev +11.5%

Served on draft at 43 degrees F (6 degrees C), using 35PSI of beer gas mix (75% nitrogen, 25% CO2), through stout faucet with restrictor plate.
Appearance (4.5/5): Initial pour generates a very active cascade of bubbles which fall downward along perimeter of the glass. As the cascade of bubbles completes, a very dense head of small nitro bubbles form a long lasting cream colored head. Body extremely dark, with no light transmittance through the glass.
Smell (3.5/5): Sweet malt and roasted aromas dominate. Pleasant, but not overwhelming.
Taste (4/5): Initial taste is bitterness on tip of tongue. Bitterness subsides as beer moves to back of mouth, where a strong but balanced roasted flavor prevails. Earthy aftertaste yields to delicate bitter flavor.
Mouthfeel (3.5/5): Guiness’ use of beergas makes for a unique experience for both head and mouthfeel. On first sip, the upper lip pushes through the dense cream head to discover a velvety mouthfeel. Carbonation levels are low, making this a very session able brew.
Overall (3.9/5): Captivating cascade of bubbles, delicious flavor, luscious mouthfeel.
