A bottle poured into a pint glass.

The beer appears a jet black color with a large off-white colored head forming. The head lingers for a good amount of time and leaves some strong lacing on the glass. The aroma of this beer is very sweet with a lactose and chocolate smell. It smells almost like a chocolate malt smells/taste. The flavor is intensely yet mildly chocolatey. There is a nice bittersweet aftertaste that lingers for quite a while. The flavors are very milky and creamy and the sweet lactose is very evident. The MF is smooth and rich, very creamy on the palate and satisfying.

This is a fantastic chocolate/sweet stout and probably the best one I have ever had. I almost always snag a bottle of this when I see it for sale. I always enjoy it and it is consistently delicious.

First nitro-can review... been awhile since having Guinness or Beamish in a can.

Poured into a tulip glass, at a cool temp of 45-50º, as suggested on the can. Slow reverse cascade effect as the head settles, creation a high contrast line against the black stout, as a result of the finely textured nitrogen bubbles. Long lasting foam, solid head retention on display here.

Who put hershey kisses in my Guinness... hollow milk chocolate sweetness, husky roast barley aroma.

Watery thinnish body, some creaminess from the nitro, still fairly flavorful though. Hershey kiss milk chocolate, mild coffee with cream and sugar, somewhat sweet though not overly so. Some mellow roastiness, though overall it's a bit flabby and watery. Where's the bitterness, where's the body? Not something i'd revisit, more of a novelty due to the can.
