4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Having this ol’ classic as close to Eire as possible never hurts. It’s still the one and only, I have never had a stoutier stout than this stout. Smells like burnt toast, burnt coffee and burnt chocolate with some nuttiness and tastes the exact same. Poured, it’s as "pitch as a witch" black, looks like an angry stormy night at sea. The tan head, poured properly, is still the best in the business. The palate of this one defies normality as it is somehow watery but also on of the chewiest, most filling beers around. It makes you strong so have three for dinner and one for dessert eh?

The famous Guinness... It has the aroma of bread, nuts, toast, dough, coffee too. It appears almost black with a thick, off-white head that lasts very long. The taste is lightly sweet with medium to heavy bitterness, although the smooth features (I hesitate to say watery) make up for that. Soft carbonation, a bit fizzy on the tongue. A lovely creamy texture. Should be drunk from tap - a shamrock could top it off. Love it or hate it.

Wenn man in Irland ist, dann gibt es erst mal ein Guiness. Ein schwarzes schweres Bier mit exzellenten cremigen Schaum, der beim trinken gerne etwas kleben bleiben soll. Das Bier ist fast eine Mahlzeit von der Schwere. Vom Geruchs ist es rauchig, malzig und vielleicht auch eine Kaffee- oder auch Bitterkakao Note. Der Geschmack hat etwas von Rauchschinken und die dickflüssige cremige Art verstärkt den Körper und Abgang. Fazit: Ein Bier wie Irland - Stark, natürlich und gemütlich freundlich.

The benchmark of stouts, Guinness is easy drinking, heavy and slightly bitter lacking the sweetness of many other stouts. Matches very well with roast meat or stews.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 0,44l can. BBD: 16.01.2015. Pours dark brown do black liquid (against light translucent), small to medium double cream tan head. Aroma: roasted, malt notes, Taste: light sweet, medium bitter, dry, light intensity, milky sweet and smooth, bit roasty, milk chocolate, quite watery. Palate: light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, medium long bitter creamy aftertaste. Overall: good drinkable stout. The minuses are: translucent body, that should be blacky black like night in desert land, watery body, light taste and aroma. Nerveless I appreciated the double cream-like head, perhaps the best I ever seen.

Another crazy night. in the Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Didn’t want to go home to my soon to be ex wife, got off the train from town and decided to make a bad situation much worse. I got proper wankered. I had one of everything until they said it would be a good idea if I left. i got wobbly. Everyone knows what Guinness tastes like. Why none beer geeks rave about this stuff I’ll never know. Bland and boring. I’ll always remember that night. The DW. Oh the DW. The blindfold. The milkman incident. The sleeping on a curry so when i did the walk of shame it looked like I’d shit myself. The madness when I got home. I hold two fingers up to yesterday, light a cigarette and smoke it all away.
