Dry creamy feel. Subtle roasted malt aroma. Predominately pitch black but has some brown around the edge. Faint chalky feel. Rich tan head that leaves a handsome film on the glass. I can’t detect any negative characteristics. Clean finish with a mild tingle of sweetness occasionally.

Tap Guinness has a bit of chocolate with coffee aftertaste. So many flavors going on. Very smooth and nice. Very nice stout.

On tap, this is one of my favorite beers. Out of a bottle, not so much.

If you want to get into the stout, here's your beer. Just make sure to let it warm up a little bit before drinking!

It has its place. Smooth with a good finish. Not nearly as potent as it appears.

Pours a deep brown-black, settles in the glass black, left a small light beige head after a gentle pour, leaves little to no lacing on the glass.

Smell has notes of oats and chocolate.

Taste follows the nose, malt and oats, with hint of chocolate. Bitterness at all, I'm pleasantly surprised.

I was not expecting such a light bodied beer, thin, watery, no perceptible alcohol. Creamy and smooth.

Not a terrible brew by any means, a very good go to if you don't have a decent selection on hand.

Not the best stout. But suitable in a pinch.
