As mass produced as guinness is I’m amazed that it’s still such a quality beer. I’ll keep drinking it as long as nothing ever changes. And watching the beer settle after a proper pouring never gets old.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a nitro can. The colour is dark brown to black, the head couldn’t get any better - dense and long-lasting. The aroma isn’t very intensive, there’s some coffee, chocolate with raisins, some roastiness. The taste is sweet, coffee, dark fruit and tangy from the roasted malts. The mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth. It’s very drinkable, well-balanced, I could have this any time of the day or year.

16 ounce can with widget. Smell a little coffee. Dark black in color with big beige creamy head. Taste some coffee, kind of thin, very smooth. Enjoyable for a commercial stout.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from nitro can into a classic Guinness glass. Colour is opaque black and slight ruby around the edges with long lasting white head. Aroma is not substantial, hints of roasted coffee, no noticeable hops. Taste is lightly malty with notes of roast coffee and a light tang on the finish that makes you want to take another gulp. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. The body and balance of this beer are really exceptional.

This is what all commercial beer should be. Perfect balance, palate, head, aroma. It just doesn't get better.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very dark with a slight ruby sheen. No strong hop aromas but this accentuates the taste. Rich and creamy in appearance with good head retention thanks to the nitrogen system. No strong hop flavours and a smooth creamy taste with a slight twang after consumption that craves for more.
One of the best stouts out there.
Quick tip, ask your server to pull the pint straight up without stopping, the stop and top up is a Guinness ploy to make the beer more special, don’t believe the hype.

Smell of dish water and money saving techniques contribute to a really lame dark ale that really tastes like chewing a dirty cloth
