Lightly toasted aroma wafts upward when poured, as the widget does its stuff and releases the nitrogen. The typical ultra smooth, creamy head erupts and remains at least a half-finger high until finished. Pasteurized and filtered, the liquid emerging after the foaming subsides is quite clean with a very dark ruby-red color.
Flavor is somewhat thin and watery in the mouth with just a hint of malt and hops, especially compared to the Guinness Extra Stout poured next to it, as an experiment in Irish imbibing on this St. Patrick's day. The bottle text urging "serve extra cold" and "drink straight from the bottle", is a tip off that this brew is aimed at the mass market, not true beer hounds.
Yes, it's drinkable, but not nearly as much so as the Extra Stout, which, even though this one was brewed in Canada, is at least a head above the Irish-brewed Draught.

Guiness is certainly a dark beer. I had it on tap and it turned out to be quite pleasant. Very frothy. Good carbonation levels takes a while for the head to settle. I would reccomend guiness if youre interested in dark beers. Nice clean mouth feel with little lingering flavors.

Many years ago this was my first experience with dark beer. I believed it to be then...not so much now. This stout pours a deep mahogany color with a thick off white head and lacing. The nose is an unnecessarily sweet blend of coffee and; unfortunately, adjunct malts. The mouth is very smooth and very creamy. We all know the guinness mouthfeel and wish so many other beers could achieve it. The flavor is overly sweet and seems like mass produced beer. Yet it still has all the rich flavors of roasted coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate. For a mass produced stout it is well crafted but lacks the finesse and refinement of other craft stouts.
