On tap at the Porterhouse in Dublin. Pours near full black with a thin but uber creamy head that somehow stayed there for 20 minutes and coated the glass. Nose is mild roasted and chocolate notes, but really too soft. Taste is even softer and lighter. It has all the toasty characteristics, but just far too light and soft. Mouthfeel is super creamy and lovely. Overall it has a few really nice points but is missing on the big ones.

Compared to Guinness, this one is both sweeter and more bitter. Doesn't have has smooth a texture though.
