Ok, I've been drinking and reviewing beers long enough that there is no excuse for me not to review this one. My goal, however is to not let nostalgia get in the way of an honest semi-objective analysis (this was my very first beer).
A - Body is dark dark brown-to-black. Completely opaque. Yields a finger of super fine khaki-colored head that lasts forever (thank you, nitro can). Good lacing. Love the way this beer pours and looks.
S - Some cocoa with milder notes of burnt toast, coffee beans and berry-like fruitiness. Not incredibly aromatic.
T - Mild fruity esters and weak roasted barley flavor up front. A twinge of lactic sourness comes in toward the middle with a stronger slightly acidic milk chocolate flavor. Finish is relatively flat with only a bit of hop bitterness and some malty sweetness.
M - If not for anything else, I love this beer because of the incredibly smoothness and drinkability (especially with the nitro cans/bottles). A little thin for my taste, but again, any thicker and it just wouldn't be Guinness. Ultra fine bubbles of carbonation dance off the tongue, but it doesn't get in the way of the already delicate flavor (I say "delicate" in reference to most American craft breweries' stouts). Finish is silky smooth with a hint of stickiness.
Serving type: nitro-can
