Served from nitro tap.

Arrived with a nice creamy 2 finger head. Appearance was pitch black.

The smell was not too apparent but there are hints of roasted malt and some coffee.

Taste had the typical sourness expected from guinness along with roasted malt. Some coffee notes sneaking in there as well along with a slight smokiness.

Mouthfeel was typical of nitro beers; creamy with very little carbonation.

I have always liked this beer and still think it is pretty decent. There are better Irish stouts out there but I will always come back to this one.

There's something milky about the appearance, but it was dark.
The smell was strong and wasn't pleasant.
The taste was bland and watery
The mouthfeel was also like water.
Overall, I'll never drink this beer again anyway because they use meat in the process, so I hear.
