look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
poured into my big ol glass.
the appearance looks absolutely gorgeous, a nice change from the orangey cooper IPAs and pale ales ive been having, looks deep black with a ruby hue if held up to the light. amazing thick and creamy head that went from about 2 fingers immediately after pouring to about a quarter inch head that lasted the entire beer. gorgeous looking beer.
not a lot of smell, but i do get hints of roasted malts and a "burnt" smell, like ground coffee beans. its faint, but its there.
the taste is basically the same as the smell-not alot there but its pleasant when you do get a taste. obviously not very hoppy-especially since i do like IPAs and that sort of thing. it tastes like burnt and roasted malts, which is kind of pleasant.
mouthfeel-what a let down. i was expecting it to be more creamy and thicker, but it ended up being thin and watery, hopefully guinness on tap is more creamier and thick. however, it is smooth-its not fizzy or anything. if only it were smooth AND creamy!
overall, its a good beer for a mass produced stout. i think this beer is overhyped, but its still good and drinkable; its underwhelming. it looks good but the taste just cant match the looks. its slightly above average for me-but i would drink it again, especially on tap at the irish pub near my house.
oh well. its still miles ahead of that yellow fizzy stuff.

Had this beer in a nitro can, after having on tap the day prior. I have to say I came into the can beer with high expectations. The appearance looks good with the cascading effect in the glass, the smell is pretty typical stout, roasted malts with hint of coffee/chocolate. Then I got to the taste....yuck! Im not sure how they call that a stout but it is so watery and bland its borderline just gross! Not too happy with this beer by Guinness
