Guinness Red Harvest Stout present the traditional Guinness cascade, and it sets up with a creamy, cream-colored head (medium width), a clear, reddish-brown appearance, a lacing sheen, and lots of tiny bubbles that stream up, if the glass is agitated in any way. The aroma comes alive as the beer warms- very creamy, medium-roasted malt, caramel sweetness, and toffee. Taste is of very sweet, sugary, bready malt, caramel, cream, and a mellow hop bitterness to balance things out. Mouthfeel is medium and silky, and Guinness Red Harvest Stout finishes semi-dry, sweet, smooth, and delicious.

Sampling right now on 8/29/14. New this year and comes in a 4-pack (cans only for $8.99) that contains 14.9 ounces. About 8 of them were out for 'Make your own 6" for $7.99, so I got 2 of them. :) Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a Guinness pint glass.

Pours a very deep brown with ruby-red highlights with a nice 1+-finger creamy head that is from the nitro-tap in the can. Pours nicely just like a thick Guinness on tap. A good amount of thick lacing is seen that sticks to the sides of the glass when sipped. One of the most I have seen actually! Not much for aroma, just of some roasted malts for the most part. The taste is very smooth with not a lot of carbonation and is different from a regular Guinness and much easier to drink. The taste is of some roasted malts with a very light hint of some spice but not very detectible. Overall, a smooth brew.

Poured into a tulip.

A: I know there are those who hate these nitro cans but I one the way this looks. A wonderful cascade down the glass as the head settles and oh what a head. And this head while it dissipates never vanishes but does leave some wonderful lacing as it subsides. Pours a dark brown with a hint of red.

S: For me, a faint roasted grain aroma.

T: I saw a noter review that liked this beer but said it didn't taste like a stout. I tolerate some stouts but they aren't my favorite style, perhaps that's why I like this one.

M: If you like the nitro mouthfeel you will like this as well. Obviously it works for me.

O: I like this better than the regular Guinness, but I like that as well.

From the red and black nitro can that doubles as a noisemaker when empty comes a new classic I feel.

Appearnce: Reddish black with a light brown head, smooth carbonation, if any!

Smells: Roast malt, autumnal feeling

Taste: Roast malt, barley, caramel, coffee at finish

Moutheel: thinner, but not too thin

Overall, I'm going to try this on draught. Plus, I think I need another four pack!

Appears a dark crimson toned red with some opaque edges. When held to the light, you can see through the glass. A large head of beige fluff never goes away and leaves scattered lacing stuck around the glass.
Smell is of fruity esters, fresh bread, caramel,a touch of roast, and cocoa, and cream.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with vanilla, and caramel coming to mind atop a fruity, doughy base.
Mouthfeel is creamy, medium bodied, with a lighter finish that refreshes the tastebuds, and leaves me thirsting for my next sip.
I love the Samhain reference on the can. Cool stuff that I would get more of during the Autumn months.
