Not quite good old guineas but was still good never understood the angst at this brew. It wasn't like coke and they changed the whole recipe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good. The nose is roasty with coffee and toffee notes, perhaps a touch of chocolate. The beer is transparent black with a tan foam head. The taste is coffee and roast malt with notes of toffee and a light bitter touch. Smooth and fuller bodied. A lot like traditional draught, but with some additional complexity and a fuller body.

A cola colored beer with a tan head. Coffee bean and burnt toast malts in the nose. Sweet with coffee grounds and a bit of toffee. Not the beer I wanted it to be but still a nice brew.

Rich black color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, light cocoa, & some coffee; Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, hops, and coffee; Finish is slightly bitter; Overall, fuller bodied - but still prefer standard Guinness.

Bottle dated Feb 2010 from Angeís house. Drank out of the bottle. Fairly sweet with low carbonation and a slick mouth feel. Not actually too bad in any way. A lot of vanilla and mocha tones. Definitely drinkable

Pours well with a good head but I expected a little more of a malty flavor, still good but not great.

As good as other stoutís get, this is still the one that all others are compared to, for good reason. Sweet, not that alcoholic, creamy, and rich. Had this on tap at the Red Lyon in Lawrence.

Being a huge fan of Guinness and all it s beers whether it be Harp or Smithwicks. I thought for sure Iíd like this. But it just wasnít. I canít remember the details it was a limited edition and I had it back in 2009 so I donít recall the exact details but I remember being seriously disappointed.

12oz bottle from Pickís poured into an English Pint. Pours black with a good bit of creamy off-white head. Aroma of coffee and some light chocolate. Taste is lightly bitter. Coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation and a long coffee finish. Overall, pretty good. Glad I finally cracked this one.
