A: Dark. Black with a mocha head. Thin rings and sheets of foam cling to the glass as you drink it.
S: Chocolate, spicy hops, toasty grains
T: Smooth, decent balance but it leans a little toward the sweet side.
M: SO creamy and mouth filling. Rich, decadent, very satisfying. Paired really well with a rueben on marbled rye.
O: This is a really great beer. Admittedly not a terribly complex stout, but it more than makes up for that with pure satisfaction.
I remember back before I turned 21 and hadn't had much to drink other than swill and jungle juice at parties, people would tell me that Guiness was like a meal. I was so dissapointed when I finally had a Guiness. It was thin and watery and sour and kind of lame. This is what I imagined guiness would be like based on other people's description. Just good; nourishing for the body and soul.

A - Poured very dark black had a thin tan head looked like soda foam. Great lacing rings left around glass.
S - Very sweet and honestly like milk chocolate.
T - Taste is great. Chocolate with vanilla undertones. Starts off creamy/milky and finishes a bit dry with a vanilla/caramel taste. So good.
M - Creamy, smooth, slightly below average carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Will definitely buy again

12oz bottle poured into a stout glass.
Pours nice and black, with little head that dissipates quickly.
Smells like sweet cream. Hint of coffee/toffee.
Tastes great. Creamy texture with a good amount of sweetness, but not overpowering. Subtle vanilla taste at first that is more noticeable on the finish. Slight coffee taste. I detect some slight spices, but don't know where that could be coming from.
Overall a very good beer. Bought a six pack of this and I'm looking forward to seeing how this tastes in a few months.
