UPDATED: DEC 1, 2009 Kind of flat and watery. I love stouts and have had many... guiness doesnít taste good to me, compared to other stouts. If this was all I tried of stout, I would assume I didnít like the stout style of beer.

Heaven. Had a draft Guinny and a bottle draft Guinny today, and the tapper still wins. Dry, malty, refreshing, and a politely bitter finish. My personal favorite.

The best Dry stout I have Sampled at this point. Smooth and chocolate-coffee flavor, with some Lemon-hoppy after taste. YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG HERE. Timeless great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Instructions on the bottle say to drink from the bottle, so a high appearance rating isnít appropriate as you canít see much of what is inside. Some coffee aroma, and also in the flavor. Next time I will buy the can and pour into a glass instead.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 I will have to re-sample this, but my memory of this beer is summed up in 2 words:Burned Chocolate. Update: On tap, out of bottle or can. Nice "standby" beer. Love watching the nitrogen pour! Best paired with chocolate.

Thick as all hell, but that is a part of it. It has a really nice taste though and I love it with Irish Car Bombs.

Best example of the style. Definitely the tap version in the USA are different than their counterparts in the UK or Ireland. Nitrogen makes this beer almost lighter than air and incredibly creamy. Pronounced bitterness from black and roasted malts, good body from flaked oats perhaps?
