3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at Heinz Field - Pittsburgh, PA] A beautiful roasted aroma. Rich black coloring with a thick dirty tan head. Initial taste of chocolate, coffee and malt with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but not too strong. There is nothing more beautiful than watching a freshly poured Guinness settle. The swirling creamy tan color as the head gets smaller and smaller and the black of the stout gets bigger in the glass. [[RE-RATE 3/26/05]] - The more I have this beer, the less I like it. It just does not taste good at all. It is not bad, but I have just found other stouts that are much better.

Nice dark color with aromas of roasted malt. Nice chocolate mouth with just enough bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 A True favorite. The only thing better than the beautiful opaque black appearance and the creamy texture is the perfect, rich, nutty flavor. Excellent.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 hints of chocolate and espresso coffee, slightly bitter roasted malts, devine creamy mouthfeel.
you've gotta try atleast a few guiness's before you decide you don't like them, can be an aquired taste and there's a slight metallic taste that some people tend to home in on.

From the nitrous ball bottle ... authentic enough with the waterfall suds and milky head! This is like drinking chocolate milk! Vaguely coffee'd and a hint of sweetness. Excellent.

I love Guinness. Its thick dark appearance and frothy head make for an enjoyable drinking experience. A staple in my fridge.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2004 The mother of stouts!! Totally black body and a nice creamy beige head that lasts a life time!! Very creamy taste with notes of liquorice, chocolate, coffee and smoke. An average stout, but good for beginners!!
