The first alcoholic drink I have ever enjoyed, thick, creamy malt best enjoyed cold and straight from the tap. Frothy head rests softly on the dark brown/black liquid. A fairly heavy taste, more than a few pints can be very filling.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The first export beer that I tasted, and one of the greatest to me, also the first stout tasted. Anyway, this beer have a very nice aroma, including chocolate, coffee and caramel. The appereance is black, very black in deed, a clear, but with a little hazy/cloudy semblance, the head is very large, frothy and creamy, being this, maybe the great atractive of this beer. It have medium sweetness and a lightly sour touch for the taste, being a good combination to keep and producing a great sensation in the mouth. Full bodied, with a thick/creamy texture and very fizzy, with a bitter and and a little astringent finish, giving a cool sensation after the drop. Very drinkable and great for a cold winter afeternoon or a rainy day in the summer.

On tap at Old Bag Of Nails Pub. Rich dense head. Pitch black in glass. Wonderful roasted malty coffee chocolate aroma. Taste is complex...so many flavor layers and changes as it warms. Thick creamy mouth feel. Carbonation is barely there. So very good! The best stout Iíve ever had and the one by which I compare all others.

Pours dark brown with high guinnes white head
Aromas of roasty malts, hints of coffee and chocolate
Most interresting is the mouthfeel of the foam. Otherwise well balanced but way too watery. Lots of roasted malts and some sweetness

Guinness is your classic pretty boy beer. It has a relatively darker taste, which can overfill, but has a great appearance and aroma.
