look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

14.9 oz nitro can poured into a Guinness pint glass.

A - Pours with the tan nitro surge that moves to a dark brown/black with a two finger creamy head.

S - Chocolate, roasted barley.

T - Chocolate, a vague sweetness on the finish, with some dry hops and nut.

M - Creamy nitro-smoothness, minimal carbonation, slightly watery in the mouthfeel.

O - Goes down entirely too fast, sessionable, and a classic.

My favorite Irish Stout to date. Love the silk smoothness, almost like the texture of drinking chocolate milk. The light burnt nut taste is what really puts this one over the top for me. I stopped buying Guinness after tasting this one.

Damn good stout. The nitro can is unique.

Pours black as a starless night. Nice nitro action producing a normal head volume, World Class retention and outstanding lacing.

Outstanding classic Irish stout nose with rich chocolate, a bit of roast and a touch of coffee over a caramel sweetness with a mineral note.

Very light watery body with just a hint of smoothness. Very slight effervescence in the finish. Normal for the style.

Like the body, the flavor profile is light in intensity, slightly complex and well balanced. It delivers a blend of chocolate and roast that flows to a mild bitterness. As the bitterness fades, caramel is detected underneath along with a nice dominate mineral note. The finish is a lingering mineral bitter note.
