Black w/ a dense, creamy nitro head. Faint dusty aroma w/ slight notes of bitter chocolate. Thin watery mouthfeel. Flavours were dull and watery. Very little malt character (no chocolate, no coffee) slight roasted bitterness in the finish. Extremely dissappointing.

I didnít like Guinness when I first tried it many years ago, but it is an acquired taste that grows on you. Much imitated and never equalled. Excellent head, dark, creamy, nutty taste, thick consistency.

I love this stuff. And if you can ever get in on tap go for it big time. Very tasty and easy to find.

Pours nice out of the bottle, good creamy head, taste like guinness and smells like it. Still much better on the nitro tap.

Guinness is next to godliness. I had 3 pints in one sitting at a great little pub in Manchester in the Summer of í98. Wow!

The staple of beer. Everyone who drinks knows of Guinness and rightfully so. The rich head and a creamy body make this beer the most filling and a good base to start out a good night.

truly one of the best beers ever brewed. Great with any hearty meal, chocolate, or with another guiness.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Craziest beautifulist damn head in the damn world, silkyness and milkiness and smoothness on top of pure blackness...aroma was weak w/ subtle nuttiness, went down extremely smooth but lacked flavor, very weak in flavor actually...drinkable but I just drank to rate it and will probably never drink it very much in the future!
