Poured into my pint glass from a nitro can the beer is dark chocolate brown with a full inch of creamy beige head. The usual falling cascade that results from the nitro was present as well. Not much lacing to be found.
The aroma is rather muted. A tiny hint of bitter hops is all that I can pick out. I don't expect much nose out of an irish dry stout.
The flavor is typical bitter hops with super smooth maltiness. Nothing really stands out as far as tastes go.
Nice creamy medium to light body. No carbonation at all. Like cold coffee.
Overall this style traditionally leans towards non offensive and easy drinking. This beer follows suit to the letter.
Presentation: It was poured from a 440ml nitro “widget” can into a pint glass.
Appearance: Its body is black as night and opaque with a typical nitro head on top. The head is a creamy light tan color, very thick and very creamy. It has very good retention and makes cool lacing on the glass as I drink.
Smell: The aroma has heavy bready malt character with mild roasted notes and some mild mineral like hops.
Taste/Mouth The flavor is bready, creamy and sweet with dark roasted malts up front. This quickly dries out with more roasted coffee like bitterness and hop bitterness taking over. (There is much less nitro taste here than some other nitro stouts I have tried.) The finish is fairly clean with some mineral like hops bitterness quickly fading off the tongue.
The texture is thin yet somehow very smooth and creamy too, with a light to medium body.
Notes: Of the big three nitro stouts (Guinness, Murphy’s and Beamish) Beamish is my favorite.
