Served into a Guinness pint glass at Olde Town Pub. From notes.

A: Well it's a Guinness, so I don't need to tell you about it's amazing head and dark body. Honestly, though, I was a little disappointed that the body itself wasn't pitch black, but it's a Guinness, so it's still beautiful looking nonetheless.

S: There are small hints of roast, chocolate, and coffee, but this is really muted.

T: Minor amounts of roastiness with little else. The only thing it has going for it is ease of drinkability.

M: Creamy texture, but thin and watery. Minor dryness on the back end and average carbonation helps it go down easy, at least.

O: Despite being very lacking in all aspects other than its looks, this is at least quite drinkable in the right setting. Even still, I'd have to be in the proper mood for another, if at all. I think my tastes have changed, big time...

Appearance - Pours a light brown, which transforms into a dark black/brown with a finger width of creamy, dense ivory head. Coats the glass with dense lace as you drink.

Smell - Grains, malts, very light roasted notes.

Taste - Cream and very light coffee roasted flavours, as well as some grains. Sort of watered down.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with minimal to no carbonation. Creamy, but also has a thin, watery feel.

Overall - A decent, classic Irish stout by Guinness. I like to pick up one of these once in a while, but not my first pick. Incredibly beautiful appearance as it pours. Not a fan of the wateriness in flavour and mouthfeel, but otherwise a good go-to.
