Single finger tan head with nice lacing on a deep brown body with a little light getting through. Aroma of vanilla, brown sugar, roasted malts. Flavor is fairly bitter due to roasted malts and espresso. Sweetness comes from vanilla and brown sugar. These flavors are very well balanced though. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Despite the bitterness this one is still pretty refreshing and clean. I think I like this one more than Guiness draught.
