Tap. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Everyone knows draught Guinness. And I love it.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beautiful pour. Great flavor. The quintessential session beer. A draft (or draught) Guinness in Ireland is as close to perfect as it gets. My favorite.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical taste and aroma of a stout. This one is much worse than the bottled version, mainly due to the strange "buttery" mouthfeel it has to it.

On draught. Stouts always have a lovely appearance and guinness is the daddy of them all. Enticing in looks, this may be a lightweight tasting stout compared to some of those on the craft beer scene but it still packs more punch than some bland macro lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black beer with a cream-colored everlasting head.
Taste is like roasted flavors with a creamy coffee finish.

Fris aroma, kolenzwart uiterlijk. Dun van smaak ontwikkelt zich langzaam, warme afdronk.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Iím actually fairly surprised by the high ratings this beer has.
I donít hate Guinness. In a bar serving only crappy macro beers, itís often my go-to sipper. (Mind you the older I get, the less time I spend in such bars.)
Oh yeah, the beer. It looks great: jet black with that everlasting head. But everything about it is muted: the aroma, the taste - the carbonation.Thereís a bit of chocolate and coffee, roasted grain, and a finish just dry enough to make it sessionable. But compared to a big, bold craft stout (or even St-Ambroise), I donít see how Guinness can stack up.

Classic dry stout example and one of the first stouts I ever tried.
Even though years have passed, and much better beers have been tried, Guinness is still a very pleasant session pub beer.
