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)

Just watching this beer being drawn is pure bliss.Dark, rich body with a creamy head.The roasty malt flavor is thick and satisfing.

The pour is one of the mose beautiful things in life. It tears my eye every time. The taste is smooth and silky, a little too much bitter taste on the side of the tounge.

A decent stout, but thereís better. This is thick and satisfying, and is much tastier on draft than in a bottle.

Ah, Guiness. A good Dry Stout thatís often very available as draft at places that serve real beer. While Iíve heard thereís better, Iíve yet to see/sample it- I wonít argue with the comments, but Iíve just not experienced it yet.
Thick, satisfying. Goes GREAT with a lot of meals, esp. something like Shepherdís Pie. If you can get the draft over the cans or bottles, get it.

Better on draft...everyone knows what this tastes like. I would like to go to Ireland and taste the difference (maybe someday).
