This bitter, foaming black brew is one of the great alcoholic beverages of all time. I usually drink it by itself, but Iíve had it with hamburgers too, which worked well. Avoid the bottled version, though; it bears only superficial resemblance to the draught product.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2004 For a large volume mass produced stout, is consistent relative to other mass produced Irish style stout competitors. This beer generally gets more respect than it deserves, however it is still one of my favorite accessable stouts. Guinness for strength

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Went out for lunch, the only beers available were from AB or the Guinness draught, I got the Guinness, it does have a nice appearance, black in color with a huge creamy tan head, weak roasty aroma, bland and weak flavor, it is thin and watery, yet has a creamy mouthfeel from the nitro, overall very bland and flavorless, not much going on here.

Although this classic now has competition, it is still unique. Soft,yet dry-with a hoppy,woody tone to it.
Not really sweet, which is nice.

The pitch black Gunness look is unmistakable. A very good beer, with a distinct taste. Great beer.
