4/5 rDev +28.6%
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.

2.84/5 rDev -8.7%
14.9 oz can with nitro tab. Served in pint glass. Beer pours a disturbing milk chocolatey brown with a thick tan head, which settles in the normal Guinness bottom to top fashion. Not much in the way of aroma. I wouldn't say this is redder than regular Guinness, but definitely browner. Well ok, held right up to the light it does have a red hue. As expected, the mouthfeel is super creamy and easy drinking. Actually this beer is too easy drinking. I can't tell which there's less of: hops, or malt flavor. I almost want to say this stout is completely un-hopped, but no, there is a hint of bitterness in the middle. I also want to say this is not so much a stout as an otherwise unremarkable English mild ale that happens to be on nitro. Would not drink again.
