Situation: unwinding for a long-overdue Guinness review...
Glassware: Guinness tulip...
Appearance: A show--an instant 5. the off-white layer of milky, creamy head leveling over cascading brown, mixing with a blackened base presents like no other beer I know...
Aroma: lactic, milky tones that hint at chocolate, and dough; for an ale, incredibly light scents...
Palate: medium-bodied, soft and smooth to the point of mellow gold--impossible NOT to quaff at a rapid pace, and that is no punishment...
Taste: although not as complex as some other Irish stouts I have had, the sweet lactic flavor is clean and lip-smacking--in addition, consistent too.
Overall: having had the draught poured "correctly" in England and Scotland, I can honestly the difference in the widgeted bottle isn't palpable to me--the reliability and drinkability make this a great partner to any number of activities. Recognizable branding and availability make this also a winner for convenience's sake.
Serving type: bottle
