14.9 oz nitro can in a Guinness glass.
A- Very dark brown color with more than a touch of ruby red at the bottom of the glass due to refraction. It has the nitro cascade look, very cool, that produces a dense creamy mocha-colored head, about a half-inch worth. The head clings heavy to the inside of the glass leaving some lacing.
S-Sweet creamy alcohol, roasted malts, and just a hint of mineral-like smokiness.
T-Dry roasted malts. I pick up some sweets, too, from the hint of chocolate. Slightly smoked.
M- Thin and watery despite the fact that the dense creamy head never waivers. The malt flavor is short lived and the smokiness is unpleasant. There's no body.
O- Guinness Draught always looks great. It's too bad that the rest it does not measure up. Not all bad of a light beer, however.

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.
