Hearty, rich coffee notes and pretty smooth. A good beer, but not really my style though. Too bitter and seemed odd being creamy yet thin.

The first Guiness I drank, it is good strong roasted barley flavor. It is more easy to drink the draught.

My only negative to prevent this from being my perfect pint is the slight bitterness left on the palate. Other than that, this is the nectar of the gods.

If the local bar has a bad tap system the can is teh way to go.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 One of the very first imports I had as a young’n. Thick. Chocolatey and coffee-ish. Very good for the volume produced. Re-rate 3.22.2005: Had on tap in London. Much, much creamier head than what you get in the USA. It was like yogurt. If only I could get it this way at home.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 An excellent beer, dark in color, exceptionally thick head, very smooth taste

A little to dry and a little too bitter for my liking.

This is without a doubt one of the best beers out there. Black as coal with a light tan head. Has a slight aftertaste to it, but overall very easy on the mouth. Put simply if you haven"t drank one you owe it to yourself to do so.

Not one of my most frequent beverages, but when your in the mood it goes down well and fills you up - the adverts are nutes as well
