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.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 Given a choice, always the first pint I get at a pub. Guinness is the reason I got into stouts a dozen years ago. A wee bit of bitterness balanced with richness, with a full body and flavor. To my mind, the epitome of a pub draft.

Dark black color, large creamy head. Rich caramel malts, strong roasted malt flavor, nearly chocolate. A Guinness is a Guinness. It is the model for stouts. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

This is the king of stouts. It has a hearty, nutty taste. Itís a full beer and should be consumed for itís flavor and taste.
