Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: After a proper pour and waiting for the casacading there was a foamy off white head, black color to the beer.

Smell: Malts and yeast, like bread.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of mild coffee but mostly malts and yeast.

Overall: Never been a fan personally. I don't often buy this but it camebin the varity pack.

My first nitro-can. Beer is totally black, with one finger of creamy, very light brownish head. Leaves a nice thick lacing as I drink it.
Aroma is of coffee (not so strong) and roasted malts.
Taste is also of coffee and some bitter-sweet chocolate aftertaste.
Quite light on the body,with light carbonation. Very highly drinkability.
Overall, worths every penny.

3.45/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a near black cola brown with head for days. Excellent retention, lacing is thick and pillowy

Smell - Faint aroma of coffee. Nothing spectacular.

Taste - Notes of coffee and a touch of bitter hops.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and creamy, though a bit on the watery side for a stout.

Overall - The Americanized Guinness gets a lot of flack, and when compared to it's sister Guinnesses, deservedly so. That said, it stacks up fairly well to the average microbrew Irish dry stout.

A: Dark looking beer, head is medium and dissipates slowly but not leaves many traces on the glass, carbonation seems rich and the top is always covered with foam.

S: aroma is not very intense, faint toasted barley aroma.

T: flavor has nothing to do with an Irish dry stout, sadly to see this is not but a commercial beer and not a traditional one any more.the flavor is very simple some toasted barley nothing else.

M: more refreshing due too the light body, ending is short and as flavor is not intense as expected.
