look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from new widget-less nitro bottle to an imperial pint, even though the label says to enjoy straight from the bottle. No freshness date.
A: Nearly black in color, a very dark cola color with a thick, foamy cocoa head. Great retention and lacing.
S: Roasted barley and coffee, a little weak in the nose.
T: Roasted and bitter barley with a slight coffee flavor and a hint of cola. Lightly hopped, clean finish.
M: Against its reputation in the States, it has a light-medium body that is creamy up front, a tad watery in the middle, and finishes smooth. More true to the style description than its legend.
O: This is a solid Irish Dry Stout. It's better in the nitro can, and I prefer the Extra Stout over the Draught (would love to try the Foreign Extra someday). Not a complex beer, but very drinkable. This was the first "dark beer" I ever drank on a semi-regular basis. There are many stouts I would prefer, but this is a classic.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

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
