Deep black with a nice creamy head. Srong taste...kind of like coffee. I love having this beer....heavy and somewhat strong.

Jet black with a creamy head. Roasty, dry aroma. Light roasty-dry flavor. Needs a little more body and flavor--I find it too thin for a stout. Otherwise, it's good for a macro.

Rich creamy head. Nice woody flavor. The after taste is good but could be better. I really like this beer and would recommend it.

Im sure most people that are on this website have tried Guinness at some point, so I will keep this short. Its great tasting, heavy as hell, and makes a perfect beer for doing car bombs, which I might add is the best drink around

Obviously a classic. Out of the draught can or on tap only, please (unless your're cooking). The off-white head is a brilliant contrast to the black liquid beneath. Smooth, creamy, rich, and, despite many people's misconceptions, very unfilling. An 8 pack goes down well during an all day BBQ. A floater on Arrogant Bastard is a great exercise in beer drinking bliss.

A delicious looking stout. Dark black in color. Very creamy off-white head. This beer is somewhat thin in flavor for me. It has very little carbonation and almost tatses watered down. I prefer the extra stout if I am going to drink Guinness. I still enjoy going to a bar and drinking draught pitchers though.

Quite simply the greatest beer on earth. For those of you who aren't sold on Guinness, I implore you to have a pint from an Irish pub, complete with the shamrock. It will change your life.

Boy this was good. Ive had it several times, but the one I'm rating was poured at the Four Provinces Irish Pub in Falls Church, VA (recipient of the Guinness Perfect Pint Award). I don't know how these guys do it but this was the best. I drink lots of stouts so I've always felt the Guinness was merely average, however this was not. Head was gorgeous and creamy thick. Body was black. Taste was smooth malt, slight hops, coffee and chocolate. My only criticism is a wateriness in the aftertaste. Overall, an excellent beer.

Guinness is always a hell of a good beer. No matter how many of the worlds best beers I consume, I continually find my way home to a Guinness.========== The Mouse on the Barroom Floor===
Some Guinness was spilt on the barroom floor,
When the pub was shut for the night.
Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse
& stood in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor
Then back on his haunches he sat
and all night long you could hear him roar;
"Bring on the god damn Cat!"
