Pours into a pint glass a cola black, nearly opaque with the creamy Guinness tan head that leaves great lacing.

Smells of thick roasted grains, and malty sweet smoothness.

The taste is a delicious roasty flavor. Not terribly complex, and a bit watery for a stout in my opinion, but not a bad beer. The nitrogen gives it the creamy impression of body, but this beer is very light tasting. Slight bitterness from the roasted qualities.
Easy-drinking.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appears black with a chestnut hue when held to the light. A thick, 2 finger, foamy tan head slowly fades out akin to the typical nitro pours. Lots of thick, foamy streaks stick to the sides of the glass.
Smell is of creamy, vanilla, caramel, cocoa, and brown sugar.
Taste is of bitter bakers chocolate without much complexity going on other than some black patent/roasted malt that seems to overwhelm the brew.
Mouthfeel is of burnt wood bitterness with some sweet caramel, and vanilla lingering to a sweet finish. Medium bodied and slightly astringent.
