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.

A dark beer with a burnt taste. Sounds bad but very delicious. The draught makes the only Black and Tan. Could not complain if there were something to complain about.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 My first legal beer and still my favorite that can be readily found. I originally rated this beer much higher, but I am far past due to re-rate this one. Itís a good, solid beer, but the flavor is not as bold as most stouts. Little coffee and malt tastes. A good standard.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - SEP 21, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2004 Opaque black with a perfect-sized tan head. The aroma and flavor were of charcoal, burnt bread, nutty tones, and slightly sweet tones. Sickly flat feeling...wet finish.
