There are two bars locally that have this one tap..one knows how to pour, the other doesn't. This review is from the one that does. Barkeep filled the glass 2/3 full, let it settle, then poured the remaining 1/3...WOW! The head quite possible could have supported a 1/2 dollar coin it was so rich and did not receed noticeably at all. The lacing was almost indescribable...more a sticky, continuous coating vs. gobs & bits. Smeel and taste are cklassic guiness...heavily roasted malt and some mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel seemed creamier, but may have been due to the increased head retention. Could pound 8 or 9 of these in a pub setting easily.
Serving type: on-tap

2.84/5 rDev -18.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Looks amazing. Thick creamy tan head that lasts forever. Appears black in the glass but slightly translucent with some red noted as well. Unfortunately, looks can be decieving.
Smell: Roasted malt, but its very mild and I'm not picking up much else.
Taste: Same as the nose. Roasted malt flavor, slightly bittersweet, but zero hops.
Mouthfeel: How can a beer that looks so good in the glass be so watery? Thin and boring.
Overall: I'll get this once and a while if there's no other options on tap, because this is still better than the BMC's of the world. Not by much though. I would like to try this in Ireland sometime to compare.
Serving type: nitro-can
