Poured a deep red with a one-finger fluffy off-white head that left abundant lacing. Also poured with a nice nitro-cascade. Quite good looking, the best element of the beer. Scents of toasted malt, some roasted malt and a faint fruitiness. The aroma is quite weak however, and very difficult to pick out anything standout. Not an unpleasant aroma, but nothing amazing. Flavor begins with toasted and roasted malt, bitterness from roasted malt. A bit of grassiness in the middle, alongside some faint caramel. The finish is a bit bitter with some metallic off-flavors. This carries into the aftertaste. The flavor is similar to the typical Guinness flavor, with just a bit more caramel. Its nothing amazing, but its not bad either. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with low carbonation, and a slightly watery feel. About what you'd expect from a nitro Guinness. Overall its not a bad beer, but it doesn't drink like a stout. Its more of a red ale, not what I was expecting. Its still good and I am glad I got to try it.

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.

Kind of strange to open a Guinness Nitro can and not seeing the pitch black Stout. Pretty brown it is with reddish highlights. The usual smooth and creamy looking head of foam.

The smell I'm getting is not unlike a Guinness Stout. Light aroma of roasted malt and nothing else.

Roasted malt in the taste too but there's more. The subtle sweetness mentioned on the can is there but I don't think it is an asset to the overall taste. I call it a distracting displeasure and makes the brew, for me, much less drinkable than the Draught Stout. Same creaminess in the mouthfeel, obviously, but bottom line, I do not see the NEED for this beer to even exist. End of my story.
