3.43/5 rDev -1.7%
500ml nitro-can into nonic pint. canned/packaged on "06/05/14". enjoyed on august 8, 2014
a: i never really give a perfect 5 for appearance, but this is just one of the most beautiful pours ever. comes out of the can black with ruby tones, frothy to begin with, then does that thing where it forms the head... no idea how to describe it but it's gorgeous. once everything has settled, the beauty still remains -- black with cola-like hues at the bottom, and one finger of ultra frothy/creamy tan head
s: coffee, roasted malt, and hints of chocolate. not a very strong aroma but it is pleasant
t: bitter black coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate flavours are prevalent all throughout the tasting. there is also a minuscule dark fruit presence. the coffee-esque bitterness dries the palate at the end. there's an odd mild sourness somewhere around mid-palate that i could do without, but it's tolerable.
m: i know it's only 4.2% abv, but it's just so watery and i really don't like that. nearly non-existent carbonation
o: the mouthfeel is the main detractor here, but guinness is full of flavour and is a very reliable beer
