3.8/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The full pint is a completely opaque, jet black, with a totally slick, even inch and a half of head. The head is a light chocolate milk color. I have been staring at it for two minutes and the head has not budged. This beer is completely in stasis until disturbed.

I disturb to quaff what basically smells like a box of Whoppers, or malted milkballs. Beer forces its way through the great barrier head to hit my tounge with an ever so slight metallic introduction to pleasant and light chocolate malt. Bitterness really only comes in the aftertaste, and is barely there aswell.

This is a suprisingly light bodied beer depite the velvety mouthfeel. I feel it might almost be fair to call this "Guiness Light", though theres a little less going on in Beamish, that makes it more drinkable and it seems to fair better out of the pub than Guiness, which can be shockingly inconsistent when purchased in stores.

Serving type: nitro-can

Ireland's finest stout, much nicer than Guinness. I could drink a dozen of these and still want more. Personally I find it more refreshing and easier to drink than the world famous Guinness. If in Ireland, I would reccomend buying one of these before Guinness, they are just as widely availible as the other legendary stout. It is famous for being slightly cheaper too. I wouldn't buy this from a can or bottle though, completely different drink.
