One of my all-time favorites, old reliable. This beer is smooth and creamy, although I wonít drink it if itís not a draught can.

Great looking beer, nice creamy head, good chocolatey flavor, and readily available most anywhere. Re-rate still a fine beer, but I have had many better stouts now, and must adjust my rating accordingly

I was extremely impressed with Guinness. I think of all the beers Iíve tried, it is definately my favorite thus far.

Looks better than it tastes. Oh itís not bad or anything - I dunno, I think my expectations were too high. Better on tap I think.

rerate, UK version, 10/2002: well whaddaya know, itís actually quite pleasant to drink over here when you get it at a good place. light, very coffeeish, and slightly hoppy - a reasonable porter i reckon. (original rating of austr. version - 29/12/02) Had some of this crap for the first time in ages last night - god itís cynical awful thin sour confected rubbish. And I hate shaving foam on my beer.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Draught: Rerate: When it's served properly, for me it's one of the greatest beers to look at. Has an almost black colour with a huge creamy chocolatehead. The aroma and flavour is slightly roasted and have notes of chocolate. A slightly bitter aftertaste, that last long. Still a great beer, but not as great as i used to think.
Original rate 4.6: It's difficult to imagine, that stout beer can be made better.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
Hmmm, great commercial description above. Thin, disgustingly creamy, faintly bitter and roasty, probably worst out of the bottle, very thin palate, tastes fake, iím not a fan of Guinness at all, whether it be from the bottle, can or on tap. its all the same, ordinary.

Tastes like industrial rubber and sewage.
