Enjoyed last night in a shaker glass, on to the beer:

The head is bone-white and creamy, and the body is mildly opaque with some ruby hues on the edges. Aroma of ground coffee. It tasted like ground coffee and baker's chocolate, but the problem lies in the texture of the beer; it's way too watery, giving the impression I was drinking watery iced coffee. There wasn't even any creaminess in mouthfeel that I enjoy of this style. If they were looking to replicate Guinness, they did the job well. Unfortunately, that's not a very high standard to achieve.
