Poured into a Guinness pint glass. Pours black with an abundant tan head that dissipates slowly. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of roasted barley malt, chocolate, coffee, and some hops. This classic stout does not disappoint in the taste department. There are sweet bready dark malts as well as chocolate and coffee. There is some mild hop bitterness in the back end. The body is light to medium with adequate carbonation. The finish is dry. The drinkability is very high. Overall, this is an excellent beer. This is still a solid classic that has the definiting flavors for this style.
