UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 Dark chocolate with a thick head. Who doesn't like the anticipation of waiting for the head to dissapate? A smooth well balanced stout. Great creamy texture, nicely malted. This is one of my favorite brews.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 I'll make this short and simple. Draught (tap) version - boring and watery. Canned version - bad. Metallic and horrible. Bottled draught version - just ok. Not offensive, but still lacking in pretty much every area. Guinness is just further proof that nitrogen ruins beer. Oh, I know what the problem is! They were too warm when I drank them! That must be it. Once upon a time this beer must have been something special. That time is gone.

Iíd agree with anybody who thinks this stout is overrated if they had it in a bottle or even a can, but off the tap you canít find a better stout. My goodness, my Guinness.

This is a great beer on tap, in a bottle or in the can with nitrogen balls. Excellent color and huge head.

I donít like this style of beer, a coffee tasting version of John Smithís extra smooth.

Description: Having been a constant boozer for over 35 years I have found
that Guinness is the one drink certain to be of good quality wherever I
am. In London the flat bitter beer is not to my taste, so I drink
Guinness. In Dublin I drink Guinness because it is like a gift from God
there and well, it is an essential part of the Irish experience. In short
Guinness is the most consistantly tasteful brew I have encountered in my
many years of dribbling on the shirt front. There should be a monument to
Guinness in the land, if itís good enough to drink, itís good enough to
stand. (Apologies to the late and brilliant Spike Milligan).
