Very smooth and thick. A classic basis for the dry stout style full of taste and texture

From a draught can. Pours a dark black with the typical Guinness cascade from milk chocolate to black and cream tan head. Aroma is faint, but has slight roast. Taste is bittersweet chocolate and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth. Overall, not a bad beer for being a mass produced, approachable stout.

Although I'm more of an IPA guy, this will remain one of my favorites. Best when enjoyed fresh in Dublin!

Great beer! It took me a long time to build up the courage to try this beer. Tried it for the first time at Bible study a few weeks ago. My faith has indeed been restored!

Poured from a can into a 16 oz pint glass. Dark, deep amber-ebony color with a smooth thick head. Smells of malt. Tastes of roasted malt at first, slight bitter tinge of baking chocolate, watery but clean finish with notes of coffee. Light, watery mouthfeel, though thick foam head adds some creamy texture. Inoffensive, pleasant session stout and balanced. Best enjoyed on tap, of course. A pub classic with high nostalgia points. (The first pint I ever drank was this in Galway City, age fourteen.)
