GIves a dark pour, 1" brown head with excellent retention. Aroma was a little roast, chocolate malt, nothing too big.

Taste, more roast, smooth, dry, a little roast but a thin mouthfeel. Almost no hopping. Kind of weak. The usual coffee and chocolate from the malt feels.

I love this beer at any time in any place. It goes down so smooth straight from the bottle. It has a great taste and is light enough so that one can easily have a few!

Had this on tap last night as I was the DD and there weren't any other options worth mentioning.

I don't really know what the difference was between this and the standard Draught...Or if it is in fact a different beer, but it is listed as such so here we go.

Look - Deep dark black with a two finger-slightly off white head. Very typically of Guinness. Carbonation is unreadable due to the color. The head retains very well since it is nitro but it is only a illusion as no lacing is left anywhere on the glass.

Smell - Moderate amounts of medium-dark coffee are the dominating, and virtually only factor in the nose. Roasted barley.

Taste - Medium-Dark coffee and roasted barley, a bit watery with a dry finish.

Feel - Smooth as expected for the nitro. Medium, slighty watery body with light carbonation.

Overall - i remember drinking Guinness when I was 15 yearssssss ago and barely being able to choke it down since it was so different than my usual party PBR. Now, This stuff is too weak for me. It was okay, and I guess it is marketed towards those who don't actually have any interest in actual craft beer. Hell, it might even work for somebody looking to make the transition.
