Very intresting beer, pretty good in the taste, and the gases add a little something, so get it in a can.

Pours black with great head. Goes down smooth. A bit like rich iced coffee, but much better. A great stout.

What can you say about Guinness? Smooth, silky texture. It’s thick apperance is deceiving because it goes down easy with the nitrogen infused bubbles!

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 Pours black with large white head. Has a nice look to it and gives off chocolate and coffee smells. It is very smooth and goes down nice and clean but has a long finish. It tastes like a cold ice coffee sometimes. I have been having this more often now and it is one of my favorites.

Great stuff. NOt much bad to say. Dark, rich and satisfying. Touch of sourness adds to the complexity. One of my favorites.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 OK, I admit, When I first tried this beer at 18, I hated it!! it was too bitter for me, then after developing my Beer palate I grown to love it!! I love the way it our into my glass, the rich aroma of coffee. I’ll be drinking this more often now
