Tried this at a new bar in providence last night. It poured an opaque black with a nice cascade effect and took quite some time to settle, but left a huge, nearly 2 finger thick tan head. Looked quite good, couldn't wait to get into it but had to get past the head, which remained throughout the entire pint and left a thick lacing on the glass.
Being allergy season, my allergies have been in full swing, so my smell wasn't the best. I could detect some nice roasted coffee and dark chocolate aromas coming from it.
The taste was exactly what I had hoped for. Very tasty roasted malt flavors, with a bitter coffee and dark chocolate after taste that lingered in my mouth for a while.
The beer was fairly thick and creamy with mild carbonation. This is a very drinkable brew.
As a former Guinness lover who has found Guinness to be different than what it used to be, seeing this on tap was quite the find. I found it to be much like what I remembered Guinness to be. If you like Guinness, you'll love Beamish.

Nitro-tap at O'Neill's Bar & Restaurant, Dublin, Ireland
A: The beer is close to being jet black in color – when held up to a bright light, only traces of reddish amber are visible near the edge of the glass. It poured with a finger high creamy tan head that has superior retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of dry, roasted malts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied, creamy, somewhat dry, and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, especially due to its light-bodied nature.

Tough to find these days. Great, wonderful, spectacular Irish beer. I love it anyway I can get it. Nice change from Guinness and Murphy's just cause, why not? Was my first pint in Ireland at the Shannon airport directly off the red eye flight from Boston. Instant love with this beer. Not as available, really anyway compared to Guinness or Murphy's but that is what you beer snob dweebs are pretty much into, yeah? Go out getcha some Beamish!!! (If you can find it! And let me know where in the US it was found!)
