Looks silky black, and it is a very deep black, can't see any light through the corner, silky medium head
Smell is light for a stout, but very delicious and chocolatey
Taste is sweet with just a tinge of bitter, if rasputin was a real chocolate bar, this would be like milk chocolate, barely enough bitter to be noticed and then sweet on top of it
Mouth feel is pure nitro, not much carbonation left after the pour, just extra tiny nitro bubbles
Overall, flavorful and drinkable, not much compared to other stouts but it's more drinkable

It's the best tasting dry stout I ever had.
It's smooth and has a high drinkability.
Also the cascade like look that forms after you pour it is awesome.
Too bad it's quite pricy and rare where I live.

BA'ers love to bash mass. Of all the mass beer in the world, if I'm stuck with one, it would be Guinness.
Most dont realize how light a beer the draught is, 4.2% ABV, less calories than Amstel, floats on your IPAs (and sweetens/ tempers them in Black and Tans) and pleases the ladies. I often order a black and tan /ipa when out to keep things lighter. To me Guinness or coffee are about the only additives to beer that work.

a) Black body with a roiling head from a 14.9 oz nitro can, creamy light tan head remains dense, lasts, laces.
s) While the aroma begins light, by the half way mark on the glass, it's coffee, charcoal, and dark roasted malts.
t) Flavor is more ample especially at cask temp - extremely smooth, coffee, roast malt, a bit of faint hop, creamy.
f) While creamy, it's also light, thin, and refreshing. Like good cold-brew coffee, no bitterness.
o) Defines light and session ale. Classic.

Not the best stout, however it's great for a session stout.

On-tap at Portside, Pensacola.
Who doesn't love this beer? A classic and original representation of the style. You could even say this defined the style. Super tasty and incredibly smooth with insane drinkability. Non-beer nerds can't believe it isn't heavy or chocolate milk. Can't wait to try it over in Ireland one day.
