One of my favorite beers. Just bursts with flavor. Refreshing and drinkable for any occasion.

Poured from a can into a 16 oz pint glass. Dark, deep amber-ebony color with a smooth thick head. Smells of malt. Tastes bready and malty 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.)

It's Guinness, the beer that got me into Stouts, and changed my beer game forever...the hell with crap ipa, and the bud lights of the world...browns, porters, and stouts are where its at! Hail Guinness for quality and flavor, and hail Nitro Stouts!

Very heavy, rich and creamy but not my type. I still can find it enjoyable on some occasions though. Feel like this beer will clearly have advocates and critics.
