Guinness is one of the world's most beautiful beers. The so dark that it's almost black liquid, with it's dark ruby highlights. The reverse cascade of the bubbles. The three finger creamy tan head.
All of those features are reproduced in this nitro can, thanks to the widget, I suppose. Looks like it's just drawn, off of a tap.
Smells dark and malty. Slight coffee notes mix with chocolate, to a lesser extent. Not alot going on in the nose, actually.
Can you say disappointment?
Wow! This tastes just like Guinness, only weaker!
This tastes like a mix of 2 parts Guinness and 1 part water. you can tell that beer elements are in there, but they are so watered down that it's hard to find them.
Guinness is supposed to be a big, thick, creamy brew. This (can) is a pale imitation of those qualities.
This might have use as a stepping stone for getting someone to come over from BMC products into craft beers. Other than that, I think it's a waste, personally.

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.
