3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very weak aroma. Appearance is just iconic 10/10. Very nice taste, simply and a little bit watery but extremely drinkable. Low bitterness. Very fine beer from a big company. An icon of its style. Definitely must try to everyone.

I don’t drink a lot of beer, or different styles, but I started drinking Guinness almost 28 years ago on our honeymoon in Ireland. I have had it now and again over the years at restaurants, and on St. Patrick’s Day, and most recently again on a trip to Ireland. Bottles, cans, draft. . .it doesn’t matter . . . I friggin’ love this stuff, enough said.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nesten helt svart med et silkemykt skum. Kaffe og vanilje i duften sammen med et lite metallisk preg. Kaffe og nøtter i smaken med en lett bitterhet. Myk og behagelig munnfølelse.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at various places including Temple Bar in Dublin and have never really enjoyed it as much as the majority of other stouts I’ve tried. A marketing success and an iconic beer rather than a great beer.
Pours close to black with a creamy solid head. Faint malty, chocolate aroma. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, but a rather watery texture. Little by way of carbonation. Underwhelmed...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very fine and creamy off white head on almost black beer. The palate seems just a bit thin, but all the good flavors are there. Slightly more sour than expected but otherwise very pleasant.

16 oz draft pour at Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm in Ashburn/Broadlands, VA. Served in a Guinness pint glass. Dark brownish black with frothy beige head. Aromas of chocolate and cream. Tastes of chocolate, light roast. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Not as watery as I remember from having it a few years ago at some average sports bar in Woodbridge.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black with an off-white creamy head. Subtle coffee and roast on the nose. Low sweetness and bitterness in flavour, watery, smooth, a bit roasty finish. Drinkable but boring and too watery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown, cream silky tan head. Light roasty aroma and herpal hops notes. Palate watery, low carbonation with trademark small nitro bubbles (cask). Taste faint roastiness and burnt sugar, hints of chocolate. Dry finish, lingering biterness. Nothing bad about this, but very mild and bland tasting beer, but it is Guinness - I guess its meant to be such.
