3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque with a tint of chestnut on the edges. Creamy tan head. Roasted barley, with a hint of sourdough and touch of sorghum aroma. Light smooth feel, that ends up watery. Light roasted bitterness with a hint of sweetness. Much prefer the original bottleor the draught of years gone by.

While its being poored its like watching a beautiful girl stripping for you as u know what your going to get afterwards... I just sit and lick my lips as the head settles, there is nothing better than this on the earth. The first sip is heaven on earth.

While there's no comparison to Guinness on tap (love those storm clouds), the bottle version is an ok alternative. I'd much rather find a pub with it on tap, however. . .

Not as good as if you walked in an pub in dublin, slapped a pound on the table, and asked for a glass; but definitely a wonderful stout classic. This is certainly a beer staple and no beer fanatic should be without the occasional glass of it.

Looks great black with the milkshake head. Still, I prefer beer with regular carbonation. It's a good stout nevertheless.

This stuff just brings a smile to my face. I don't know if it's the incredible appearance or the smooth creamy/coffee flavor, but this stuff rocks!! The head is what makes this beer, both in appearance and in flavor. That first sip with the full head is truly heavenly.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 What can we say about a Guinness Draft pint? Well, it holds a special place in all our hearts but, in truth, there are many stouts that are above and beyond. Not even really that good among drys, this is really the watery macro drinkers attempt to seem like a connoisseur.

Rich and creamy cascading in the glass because of the fantabulous "rocket widget." Dark roasted taste, smooth, creamy on the palate. Slight bitterness in the ending compliments the dark roast.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2008 I like it much more the extra stout. Creamy and tasty very refreshing. I like that they put the CO2 in the bottle to keep it fresh. Great when very cold, it is a clasic for a reason. Semi food like. On tap in a bar that specialises in only large name brands it is heaven.
