Roasted, or better burnt coffebeans. Creamy frothy big light brown head on the black body. It is weak and tastes watery. palate is syrupy with a metallic finish. Flat carbonation. It is better on tap!

Another tried and true grocery store beer. If your picking up a loaf of bread and you want to get some good beer without making another trip, grab some Guinness. A little watery compared to some of the better stouts. Probably one of the longest lasting creamy heads on a beer though.

The draught guinness stout can vary from bar to bar. Some bars get it nitrated, others carbonated. But for a stout, this is the absolute most versatile. It goes good with most any bar and resturant foods. Now I will freely admit that there are several stouts out there better than Guinness, But In my opinion, Guinness is to stout, as The Beatles were to Rock and Roll

the worlds most overrated beer probaly the beer that all the nitro haters order when they see it and then say its a good beer even though it is pushed with nitro mix. could not get through a glass this does nothing for me. i am far more impressed by many micro stouts with the mix or without.

Absolutely beautiful. Smooth going down and the rich creamy flavor lasts till the last drop. This was an especially good one since the waitress misread my ID and thought I was 21. Still a month and a half to go babe.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2006 A good beer with one flaw. A draught was never meant to be drank from a can or bottle, if you do you will feel like you are swallowing foam the whole time.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Simply one of the best beers made, I dont care how overrated. Though it should not be served chilled in my opinion, just the regular 56-58 degrees. Even better on draft in Dublin. I would have scored it higher if it had a bit more body ( a bit too watery), but hey, it lets you drink more of it on the other hand. so maybe i should have given it a perfect. . .RERATE. This St. Patty’s Day really made me realize how far this beer has fallen in the U.S. Can it get any thinner?? Seems they are competing with BMC for macro swill market share. Rerate further. Seems I am a little slow to catch on. This beer is a boring, watery, bland, lifeless, pasteurised mess. It is better than the typical BMC pale lager, but that dosent say much.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2006 True, its roasted chocolate malt and coffee notes are very well balanced…True, it has a nice bread-like doughiness…But its thin, gassy, watery body does nothing for me…

The standard by which all stouts should be measured. It’s solid, life-affirming, hearty -- the mothers’ milk of stout.
