UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 9/16/02: Had it on tap at Black Angus. Black as coal with a substantial head. I found the body to be thin and watery, but it did have a nice, light, bitter stout flavor. Drinkable, but nothing special. 3/17/06 Bottle: Deep burgandy color with a medium light tan head. Light aroma of burnt coffee. Flavor is very light, weak black coffee that finishes rather dry and lightly bitter. Body is thin and watery with a velvety texture and soft carbonation.

Growing up Boston Irish Iíve had my share of Guinness Draft. I think at this point my opinion is subjective based on all of the great times Iíve had drinking this standard. When fresh and poured well it stands up as a great dry irish stout with that slightly sour bite and legendary head. When off it can taste watery with a mealy mouth-feel. If there is the beer equivalent to comfort-food, this is it for me.

While Guinness was my first stout, this new draft version in the bottle with a nitro widget just doesnt come close to what made me appreciate the stout style all those years ago. It looks nice, pouring black with a big, creamy tan head, but the nitro just adds a bit of a strange flavor, and the dry, bitter flavors are no longer my favorite either.
