Black of course, but it does not look as good as a properly poured Guinness. Lightly roasted malt, and I am tasting a lactic character that I don’t really care for, as well as light smoke, which is is good.

Poured into a glass at the brewpub
The bartender recommended this (they were out of their IPA) and compared it to Guinness.
Poured dark (almost black) with minimal creamy head. Very little tracing. Smelt of chocolate. Tasted very dry and malty, but a decent stout.
