god, what a beautiful pour. a sight to behold no matter how many times you see it. i feel bad even doing this review, as i may not give the beer due justice. pours a nice dark chocolate brown into a solid black glass no light penetrates. solid, almost two finger head that lingers til the end of the glass. creamy, off-white, almost light mocha head with thick, frothy lacing.
gallant bubbles frolic alongside the glass throughout the initial release of the beverage. again, a beautiful pour.
smells delicious. hazelnut malts with a hint of cocoa, fresh. like putting your nose inside a just opened bag of the best smelling coffee one can find, but not overbearing.
light, smooth on-bringing comes to a quick, crisp, tasteful finish. tastes is of barley and malts, with an aftertaste of hops : all uniquely their own.
i was hesistant to review Guinness without the widget. i felt it wouldn't be an accurate representation of the beer, this 'experiment', which has left the Guinness bottles without their now familiar 'widgets'. although, after reviewing it, i realize looking back it will be more unique, perhaps a time where "to widget, or not to widget?" was indeed a the question. could these little guys be no more? who knows. all i know is i totally realized how much i had been playing hard to get with my love for this beer. it really is all you could ask for in a brew. a nectar of the gods.
