One of my favorites, and as everyone knows there is no comparison between this and bottled or canned.

Although itís somewhat thin, Guinness is absolute bliss. Extraordinarily easy to drink, smooth, and flavorful.

Nice frothy. creamy head. Best from the tap. Quite possibly the greatest stout there is.

Guinness has always tasted like cold coffee to me. The very definition of í5í for appearance. Iíve re-rated this about a half dozen times though still in the same ballaprk. I donít get the fuss about this beer. It seems quite light to me, and almost watery.

A Guiness is a Guiness. Not bad. A little bitter, but great with salty foods.

Far superior to the bottled Guinness that makes it to American liquor stores. After this, donít bother with it.

Guiness is an easy drinking, very creamy,roasty flavored stout. Nothing real special, but never disappointing.
