Catching up on some more reviews from notes.
Pint, nitro-tap in Toronto. Not sure how nitro affects this one as I haven't had the regular version to compare.

The beer is dark brown, mahongany color. The head is short, but tight foam (very Guinness-like). The floating cap of foam lasted for the entire pint, decent looking lace coats the glass.
Smells of roasted malt, maybe a bit of coffee, but I think the nitro kills alot of the aroma.
The flavor is quite mild, some more roasted malt, slight hints of coffee or cocoa. A little bit of bitterness at the end. Body is quite thin, but the nitro keeps it creamy and smooth.
A good sessional beer, not too bad.

Poured from a pint nitro-can into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Beautiful nitro look with cascading carbonation and a residual creamy head, about an inch and a half thick. Very appealing.

S- Roast malts, delicious smelling chocolate and dry stout aroma. Appealing.

T- Less rich than Guinness, but similar in many ways. Perhaps more hoppy, but still rich and creamy malts. Not tremendously well developed. Drinkable and dry.

M- Dry, creamy. Good.

O- Still not as good as Guinness, but a very tasty Irish Stout.
