Guinness with deeper flavor, better body and color. I had this on nitro-tap and the mouthfeel was heavenly, rich and silky-smooth. I got some burnt malt but not overpowering as in some other stouts. I tasted caramel, chocolate and coffee with no off-putting sourness I've experienced in some stouts. Very crisp and refreshing finish. I highly recommend giving this one a try if you're near the brewery. It's a tap-only deal.

Serving type: nitro-tap

On tap at the RR Brewpub in Santa Rosa.

A: dak brow-blackn, essentially opaque but clear. Semi-durable head still leaves very good lacing.

Aroma: dark roasted malts withfaint hops.

Flavor: dark roastd malts with more obvious hops than in the aroma.

Feel: smooth; light body seemed relatively too light for style and even a bit watery; medium-low carbonation.

O: OK

Serving type: on-tap
