Ever see that Sam Adams light commercial where the guy drinks S.A. light for the first time and screams out WOOOOOOOOO!!!!! cause it tastes so good? That's kind of what happened when I had my first Guinness Stout a couple of hours ago. Too bad a 6 pack costs more than some 12 packs around here. Definatly worth it though. This is a beautiful beer with a refreshing unique taste. I bought it on a tip from you guys after seeing the ratings here. Thanks:)

I've had Guinness served several different ways, but not yet on tap. I guess this is the closest thing to tap beer. It pours out an
ink black color, and the nitro widget makes the beer extra frothy when poured in a glass. The cascading bubbles makes for an
interesting experience to watch. I believe it even makes the beer taste better, because it brings the hop oils and aromatics to the
top of the glass. Maltiness galore, with the classic bitter Guinness tastes are evident from the first sip. It has that hoppiness bite
right at the end, and plenty more tastes in between. This is a really good stout, and it's consistent. That's why I like it so much.

This is a very dark beer with a strong taste and a nice head. Very smooth. Surprised by the low ABV. Not as good as the Nigerian version.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 Went to Ireland and had it right out of the tap! The aroma was delightful and palate quite pleasing with the dark roasted taste. I love Guinness and was amazed at how well the draught bottled tasted like the actuall Tap. Grat job with the little dudad in the bottle injecting CO2 when you open it to keep that fresh tatse!

Drunk at the Guiness Factory, Dublin, Ireland.
What an amazing beer from an amazing brewery. If you think its good where you've had it then wait to you go to the factory in Dublin, it will blow your mind. Think, creamy pints or nourishment. Unmistakable white head that takes a year to settle. The roasted flavors are smooth and well integrated. This is a mega beer, that if you like to drink perfectly you'd better go to Ireland. For Beer Drunk outside of Ireland -2 from Overall Impressoin. Its just to veriable everywhere else.

What can be said about Guinness? It pours very dark with an extremely stable medium white head that does not disperse. The beer does not have much aroma, but is so smooth to drink. I love this beer.

Average as Stouts go, I am not a huge Stout fan. I feel that there is not enough complexity to satisfy my taste buds.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 Classic Irish Stout. What can you say, great creamy head, nice bitter / sweet taste of roasted barley but not too heavy in body.

Apparently I'm one of the few non-lovers of Guinness. I like a lot of dry stouts but Guiness just doesn't do it for me.
