Black, almost grey creamy head. Nose of burnt wood, or charcoal bbq’ed meat with some spices. These flavors are carried into the body, good roast. Nice stout, although a little thin from the can.

Well to me there’s nothing like a guinness. I have yet to find a beer which satisfies me as much! In a word...perfection

Judging by scores from others, I think we are in agreement that Guinness scores points for appearance. Overall, a very quality brew, and my standard for dry stouts. I prefer beers that are a little less dry, but for the style, it’s hard to beat. Sometimes you’re just in the mood for a Guiness and nothing else will do.

I dont know? Always liked it.Gots a soft spot fer it.Love that action after the pour.Hell, i could watch that all night!Very cool! Not much aroma to speak of, little malty, maybe its the nitro? Love that head! Beats the hell out of the milk commercial as far as the mustache goes.Slick on the tongue, burnt malt flavors.You take a big gulp and let it sit in your mouth.Feels gooood.Love the blackness of it also.Good session brew!

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2003 You absolutely cannot beat Guinness. As if its being the best looking beer in the world isn't enough, it is also excellent in flavor. Draught it is wonderfully light and smooth (thanks to the nitro tap) with subtle roasted flavors. The thick, smooth head (again with the nitro tap action) stays until the bottom of the glass. A classic, and worth finding on tap.

One of the true greatest. Must admit I don’t have material to compare its kind with except maybey Murphy’s. Still, one of my favourites.
