Served in a pint-glass, poured from a nitro can at a local restaraunt. Special bonus review with my co-reviewing wife!
Poured black near the top, with some nice amber flashes at the bottom of the glass ("Dark cherry!" remarks my wife). A thick, creamy head that sticks around for the duration of the drink - and I just can't help but draw a happy face in a thick head. Call me a kid blowing bubbles in his chocolate milk.
Lots of coffee and malt on the nose. Smells like a total cup of joe. My wife notes this a well.
Mouthfeel and slightly viscous with almost no carbonation. Very similar to straight off the tap! I think these nitro cans have done a fairly good job of what they are supposed to do. Taste is immediately tons of coffee! Fades into a slightly bitter maltiness, with a toasty finish.
Satisfying beer overall! A good overall introductory stout.
Serving type: nitro-can

Before we begin I'd like to note that this review is based on Guinness draft from one of those cheesy black bottles. I've had better experiences with cans and draft, but I think the container may have thrown me off. Also, it says "enjoy straight from the bottle" but that seems kind of idiotic to me. I guess it's intended for the St. Patrick's day swill gang in this format.
Reviewed the same day as extra stout, and liked this one better, for what it's worth.
Looks black, (dark dark red in the light) not much of a head. Again I blame the bottle and lack of widget. (Then why did you buy it, review the beer you douche.)
Smells malty and chocolatey and a little smokey.
Tastes like it smells, but with a speck of stale cereal. It's more watery than expected too, especially considering the creamy mouthfeel. It's occurring to me that this is kind of a weird beer now that I'm writing this out.
Overall, not my everyday drink. Will try more from the style.

Got a can from the pool bar at the Royal Pacific Resort, Orlando. The place is great (gotta love the fast pass at Universal Studios), but man, this beer sucks. I like Guiness stout, but this is nothing like that. Looks good enough, but there's hardly any aroma and it tastes like flat, bland water. I mean, why bother? If you like tasting absolutely nothing in a beer, then go for it. Otherwise, pass on this swill.
