From nitro-bottle in shaker. Pours black with creamy head and aroma of roast malt. Smooth drinking thanks to the N2, classic mellow finish with a bit of smokey bitterness. Reasonably close to tap version.

14.9 ounce can into imperial pint glass, canned on 5/26/2016. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1 finger dense and creamy light tan head that lasts the whole glass. Thick creamy lacing clings down the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and toasted dark bread; with light nuttiness, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and toasted dark bread; with light nuttiness, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, light nuttiness/smoke/herbal, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from roast/bitterness, increasing through the glass. Light carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly grainy/chalky, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is okay. Very thin with no creaminess at all. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this was a decent Irish dry stout. All around good robustness and balance roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. This was too thin and bit watery than I expected; but it was still quite enjoyable overall, and a good style example.

Very nice and creamy head. Very smooth. Smooth mild malty flavor. I always enjoy a Guinness on tap.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 Classic Guinness pour, lots of head if your not too careful. Eddies of tiny bubbles as the beer settles. Quite a mild aroma of roasted malt. Very clean taste, quite understated. Almost a little watery. Malt otherwise, chocolate and some coffee. Extremely smooth drinking. A classic.

Barwa prawie czarna. Piana jasno br?zowa, drobno ziarnista przypomina rozpuszczone lody kawowe.
Aromaty kawy, kawy z rumem czy likieru.
W smaku bardzo podobnie.
Goryczka kawowa, palona jest niska i ma?o intensywna.
Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do niskiego, pasuje. Piwp jest zdecydowanie za "chude", wodniste i to jest na pewno minus.

Can. Nice coffee & roasted malt aroma, but taste is totally empty, almost like water. Only a little bit of coffee. Nitrogen gives some smoothness.

Bottle. Aroma- weak coffee and some maltiness. Black, clear, with a fantastic head- Iíve tried this beer couple of times, but nitrogen always makes an impression. Taste- creamy, with delicate coffee and nothing more- no roastiness, no bitterness. Quite watery in the aftertaste. Good beer for a football match, but as a Stout- quite poor.
