UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 One of the better more "popular" brews. Pours a thick black with a brownish head. The toasted malts/barley are quite clearly defined and quite refreshing. Even though it is kind of filling, the flavors itself are lighter than its full body. The flavors are less complex than I would like and not bitter enough (lack of the nice floral hops that I normally enjoy in a full bodied brew). My favorite way to have Guinness is actually pouring it out from a can with the plastic ball in it. The taste is more consistent this way.

Guiness is een veels te donker bier waar je bijna het gevoel hebt dat je er op moet kauwen. De bittere smaak doet je denken aan een te oud kopje koffie. Niet bier waardig.

As a red-headed Irishman I am obligated to love Guinness. The dark roasted flavor, creamy mouth feel, the characteristic head. I honestly feel closer to my Irish family with one in hand

Dark Brown stout. Nice ama of wood and toast. Really dull taste though. Light taste of coffee. Watery palate which I really donít like. Not at all a good stout in my opinion.

I canít say enough how much I love the liquid gold that is Guinness. Iíve tried many other stouts and I just canít find one as smooth, delicious, and overall pleasing as the original stout.

Iím a novice to beer, but this is a beautiful beer with good taste and a great, creamy mouth feel. When I think of a dry stout - this is what I think of.

Very dark beer with a nice, long lasting head. Roasted aroma, a bit milky taste. Not so sweet, rather salty with a bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Definitely a good beer, but not my style.

Nice roasty aroma, tan head, roasty stout flavor. Very good in every aspect except body. This one is so thin bodied. Extra stout is very similar but with more body.
