Smells like soy sauce, but easier to drink than chocolate milk. One of my favorite beers to get during the cold months.

If you haven't seen or had this beer, I don't know what planet you're from. The dull brownish-black body is topped with that classic dense, creamy dark tan uniform souffle. This actually has tangy notes of minty chocolate through the semi-bitter baker's cocoa and mild roast, while maintaining one of the thickest bodies of the more widely available beer pantheon.

It’s hard to imagine how a dark beer could look better: ruby black accented by a gorgeously creamy head, the mesmerizing sight of tiny bubbles cascading in a waterfall of umber. The smell is mild, with delicate aromas of roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, and malt. Not particularly exciting, but well done nonetheless. The taste is similarly light; there are certainly stouts that pack more of a punch, but there’s not a fault to be found in the lightly bittered blend of toasty flavors. Its resultant endless drinkability is one reason I name this my favorite beer over heavier, richer options. Lastly, it would be folly to neglect to recognize the perfection in a dry, slightly carbonated, black beer complemented by the soothing creaminess of nitrogen. Drinking a guinness is like drinking...well, nothing else, really. Its practically perfection.
