Ohio

3.68/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

of course guinness is always better on tap, the best i ever had were in the irish pubs in NYC. the nitro can is a close comparison but the bottle made the beer sort of lackluster...until that is, i followed the instructions and served it "extra cold". but i still didn't drink it out of the bottle.

A- poured like chocolate milk forming 3/4in of creamy frothy beige cake batter head that retained itself almost completely, leaving curtains of lace hanging on the sides of the glass over the dark brownish black stout. i could see faint hints of amber when held up to the light.

S- toasted nuts, malt, sourdough bread, over-ripe fruit, raisin, plum, floral butterscotch, caramel, toffee

T- banana coffee dark chocolate. caramel hot cocoa and bitter burnt malt, followed by roasted malt, sunflower seed, and an earthy hoppy aftertaste.

MF- silky smooth and creamy it just glides down. very little carbonation which is a good thing for a stout in my opinion.

D- just dandy

"serve extra cold"
i put a pint glass and a bottle of guinness in the freezer for about 10-25 minutes. in the frozen glass the cascading was even more amazing. in the middle of all the action, things slowly grinded to a halt forming rock-like strata, or even like cloud layers on the planet jupiter for about 1/2in between the beer and the head. this time, the foam became a starchy, clumpy, foamy disc on top, a darker brown with little dark specks and more aerated like buckwheat pancake batter or the head on a rootbeer float with the same icy consistancy. using this method, some of the more delicate flavors and aromas disappeared, but the overall taste improved and the mouthfeel and drinkability skyrocketed.

Serving type: nitro-bottle
