From the can to a pint glass. Pours black with a very light tan head. Kind of has that picture perfect Irish pint look you see for the advertisements for Irish stouts. The head leaves a lacing on the glass and stays till the last drop, great retention. The smell is pretty typical and what I would expect for the style. A nice roasted smell and this one smells great. There is also some chocolate in there as well, nothing strong but it's there. The taste, like the smell, was pretty predictable. A nice light roasted flavor, that small hint of chocolate, and unlike the smell I got just a dab of coffee as well. Nice refreshing taste. The mouthfeel is really creamy. I wouldn't say it's thick but it's definitely not thin, kind of almost chewy but more creamier than anything. Drinkability is high for this one. With a ABV lower than Bud Light kicking back a few of these wouldn't be a problem. This one definitely contends with Guinness and Murphys, not sure which of the three I like best but all are great. Overall this one is great, will pick up some more whenever I get the chance.

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!)
