look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured a very dark if not black color it had a two inch tan head that retained well and left tons of lacing.

S: Good smell lots of roasted character sweet malt and chocolate hints very pleasant slight hint of alcohol perhaps some dark fruit notes.

T: The roast hits up front followed by the slight sweetness in the smell it has an overall earthy flavor and ends bitter, yet refreshing and enjoyable.

M: this was the most disappointing aspect, the expected creamy feel was not there it feels rather light and while this was refreshing it was not what i expected.

O: I am not super familiar with this style so I cannot say if it is pure to the style, also i have heard that guinness has watered down changed etc their beers, i don't know i really liked the beer it tasted good it looked good and it smelled good , the mouth feel was a bit disappointing and maybe that is the watering down but on the whole this is a good beer.
