FTA. While talking to an Irish guy I found out that I have not ticked this yet. Best one I had was in Southern England. Worst one probably in a pub in Moscow airport. Can is not to my taste. Just a reminder.

A good beer with a strong aroma at the back of the throat. Moreover this THE beer in Ireland and its got a very rich history that helps it taste god in your mouth

On tap. Pours black, with a short light brown head. Aroma of dark malt and dark roasted coffee. Mouth feel is rich, full, creamy and foamy. Body is thin. Tastes slightly sweet, then somewhat bitter, slightly burnt. Flavors of bitter espresso, dark malt, burnt flavors. I’m not a Guinness lover...

10 oz Draft. It poured dark black with a beige head. The aroma was toasted malt with a dry taste with maybe a hit of chocolate. I had better Guinness elsewhere but not in a long time.

On tap, dense black body with light tan, sticky head. Earthy, chocolatey aroma, some metallic undertones were noticeable. Smooth taste of roasted malts. Slight sweetness at the end with a mild bitter finish. Creamy, velvet feel.

Not my favorite style of beer. It is pretty dull actually.Widespread because there’s a Irish Pub in every godforsaken place around the world.

440ml can. Aroma is sweet. Pours dark like Coke, minimal head. Taste is soft, woody, slightly coffeeish, sweet aftertaste. Body is quite thin. Overall a classic stout that you could always count on and get from anywhere around the world.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Still an excellent classic dry stout. Creamy as nothing else, black with his spectacular head.
