Nitro-can, nitro-bottle, nitro-draft, etc.

Appearance - Quite possibly the most beautiful pour of any beverage. The cascading affect, while familiar, never gets old. Leaves a wonderfully thick, creamy head on top with peaks reminiscent of fresh whipped cream.

Smell - Subtle smell for the relatively low ABV count. Very muted hints of chocolate and porridge.

Taste - Although slightly bitter, the nitro body yields a very underwhelming but enjoyable profile. Very easy to drink much like a session beer. Very delicate hints of roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel - The most enjoyable part of a Guinness. Although sometimes hated, the nitrogen adds a complexity that allows this beer to be enjoyed in mass quantities without getting the gut-rot familiar with other common adjunct lagers.

Overall - For someone looking to get into stouts, Guinness is a great place to start.
