One of the best macrobrews ever. If you can get the right pour, and the right temperature, there is not much that can beat this beer in a bar. Thick and with a consistent head, This is an all-star.

Okay, this beer arrived a very dark brownish black color nd formed an off white head with little lace. It had an aroma malt, smoke and chocolate. The flavor was of malt and chocolate. The body was creamy and the finsh was chocolate with some smoke present.

One of the first beers I truly enjoyed, and one of the best ímainstreamí beers Iíve ever had the pleasure to taste. Thick and full bodied, with great head and a very impressive start to finish taste. Belongs with the all-time greats, in my humble opinion.

Guinness is the greatest beer - ever. I routinely drink many, many pints of this. Rich, creamy slight chocolate taste. No aftertaste. Beautifully bitter and dark with full-bodied head. Guinness, God and Family are the most important things in my life. If you canít get it on tap , the pub draught cans are the best alternative. The draught bottles are too watery and the extra stout bottles have a burnt aftertaste. Guinness is good for you!

Love the burnt taste, very light for a stout, can consume large quantities of this stout

Far too watery to be of any value to the stout lover. Itís hilarious how low the alcohol content of an opaque beer is.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Trying Guinness in Ireland makes all the difference. Beautiful beer with a beautiful head, great aroma. The palate changes dramatically through the pint, and I must admit that it is a pleasant beer to have on a cold day. But here in the US, I'm not such a fan.
