The classic stout. Black as night with a lovely white head that lasts longer than the beer. Nice and smooth mouthfeel. A little bitter for some people. Even if you dont like beer watching one be poured properly is an experience everyone must have at least once in their lives.

A great,creamy stout. Have a pint and see that itís not so much a beer as an experience.

Guinness on draft when poured correctly is a thing of beauty. The creamy dark head, the deep dark brown appearance, the piney smell - its all good. But after that Guinness is takes a bit of a down turn. Sure, dry stouts are not my style, but Guinness really seems to be lacking a puch in the flavor department. Flavors of coffee, burnt chocolate all seem to be muted.

I liked drinking this in America, but I gave it another shot in Europe and found it to be much better (just like other people told me).
The bartender at the pub also clearly knew how to pour a good beer. It took him about three minutes, clearly showing their concern for this delicate beer.
I didnít even want to drink it because it looked so pretty, but I have in and had one of the best beers Iíd ever had in my life.
Good roasted hopsy taste, and an increadible aroma that lasts. The beer is more of a meal than anything. Perfect amount of head if poored well. But why am I telling you this? If you know anything about beer, you know that this is a good one.

Black, creamy, roasty, dry and bitter. This was once upon a time one of my favourite beer, but since that Iíve learned a lot. It is not exactly subtle, but far better than most other mega brews.

ok, iíve tried it again, the CO2 guinness is pretty close to the draught version, although i still prefer Murphys stout.

Not good in a can with the floating widget. I now avoid such cans because it serves a flat old tasting beer. Nothing really impressive about Guinness Draft, other than a long lasting head. (re-rate)
