On tap at multiple establishments.
What can I say, this is the most beautiful looking beer I've ever seen. Appearance is nearly jet black with slick white head that lingers for the entire drink. The cascade is a sight to see, I'm always mesmerized by it.
Smells of burnt coffee and typical roasted malts.
After drinking many other stouts out there, I can see why people consider this stout-lite, and perhaps deservedly so. Well, whatever, I still love this drink and it's available mostly everywhere. Super smooth, goes down ridiculously easy.
Overall, a really decent stout. Nothing exceptional, but it's available at nearly every bar worth a damn...a hands-down-no-brainer alternative to the BMC that is inevitably served beside it.

Guiness is certainly a dark beer. I had it on tap and it turned out to be quite pleasant. Very frothy. Good carbonation levels takes a while for the head to settle. I would reccomend guiness if youre interested in dark beers. Nice clean mouth feel with little lingering flavors.

Many years ago this was my first experience with dark beer. I believed it to be then...not so much now. This stout pours a deep mahogany color with a thick off white head and lacing. The nose is an unnecessarily sweet blend of coffee and; unfortunately, adjunct malts. The mouth is very smooth and very creamy. We all know the guinness mouthfeel and wish so many other beers could achieve it. The flavor is overly sweet and seems like mass produced beer. Yet it still has all the rich flavors of roasted coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate. For a mass produced stout it is well crafted but lacks the finesse and refinement of other craft stouts.
