Proper pour from nitro can into a pint glass. Nice, dense creamy head and bubbly cascading brown-turning-black body of the drink.
Smell is not a factor here, as there isn't much to work with.
You actually have 2 parts of the beverage to taste here. First, the head -- creamy, mild roasted grain that coats your tongue and lips, and dominates the flavors of the rest of the brew. The rest is a carbonized grain flavor, nothing else really.
A stout for non-stout drinkers. Sad -- as it is not like the stuff you get in Dublin. These are very easy drinking, as they lack much character at all. And, if you are unfortunate to have one poured where the head is non-existent, you miss the most pleasing, dominant flavors. Wow, am i giving a thumbs down to a legend? Not really -- I'd still drink this over Bud any day, but this represents a sad example of the true nature of the original.
Serving type: nitro-can
