3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown, cream silky tan head. Light roasty aroma and herpal hops notes. Palate watery, low carbonation with trademark small nitro bubbles (cask). Taste faint roastiness and burnt sugar, hints of chocolate. Dry finish, lingering biterness. Nothing bad about this, but very mild and bland tasting beer, but it is Guinness - I guess its meant to be such.

Sampled from a bottle at DFW airport. Ever reliable, tastes exactly as you would expect. Good roasted flavours, smooth and nicely bitter. Excellent. I prefer the Foreign Extra Stout, but it's still not bad.

Belle mousse bien crémeuse pour cette Guinness issue d'une canette. Bien que les Stout ne soient pas mes bières favorites, j'ai pris plaisir à déguster celle-ci. Amertume faible, léger goût de malt torréfié. Il manque peut être un poil de corps à mon goût.

What can you say. Smooth, creamy, and not at all overpowering. It seems to be just as good in the can as on tap.

Thick medium tanned head. Enjoy itís subtle ruby color. Roasted malts, coffee, caramel. Strong body. Bitter finish. Even better when drawn in Ireland.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque black color with a copper hue. Thick and creamy light brown 1 finger head lasting around 10 minutes and clinging to the glass. Powerful legs with a sexy pouring activity slowly revealing the foam.
Aromas and flavors of sweet smoky molasses, roasted coffee, cocoa and herbal spices. A little vinous with the smell of alcohol, almost metallic. Nice intensity and well balanced flavors, not too intense and having both sweetness and some sharpness.
Smooth creamy full body with pleasant carbonation. Balanced soft finish, slightly spicy and bitter dry mouth coat with a roasted coffee feel.
Overall : Very accessible classical craft. Great balance in flavors and well intensified with good freshness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from can a beautiful deep brown except for ruby depths, with big tan that leaves considerable lacing and skim.
Uncomplicated nose: roast chestnuts and coffee. Similar on the palate, with bread, a hint of chocolate and some chalkiness added to the dominant roast malt. Thatís slightly bitter, but the major impression comes from the famous creaminess _ thanks, nitrogen. Light body belies the color and taste profile.
Not a particularly layered or ambitious stout, but an approachable and readily sessionable one. The Irish brew is preferable to North American siblings.

On draught. This is one of the Worldsí most famous and popular beers. I think that is more down to clever and extensive advertising than the beer itself. Guinness is watery and quite a bland taste, there are dozens upon dozens of better porters and stouts out there. Try some.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Een houterige en waterige smaak voor deze Ierse stout. Redelijk vlak, ook vanwege de absentie van koolzuur, maar staat in zijn eigen recht.
