The nitro can was created, I would guess, for looks and feel. It certainly succeeds in look as the transformation of this beer, as it enters the glass is both beautiful and entertaining. The head it builds is thick and creamy and congeals into a solid unit. The color is black, plain and simple.

The scent is lacking as some charred malt is present but lost for the most part.

The taste is toasty, charred malt with a back end of sweet creaminess. Problem is as good as it tastes, it's simply not tasty enough. The whole taste gets lost in a wash of watery finish and feel. The nitro seems to take away the very essence of the beer and depletes, what I always felt, was a very good stout.

Pours dark black color with finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are very good. Aroma is not very strong. Slightly roasted, malty aroma. Hints of coffee. The taste is really watered down up front, continuing with a watered down roasted coffee taste, Not sure if this is an out of date can (shouldn't be), but I remember Guinness being better 9it has been a while, though).
