4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Classic taste and full thick body. Great full palate and aftertaste. A good intro to stouts. Best from tap in Ireland.

Bottle date: unk
One in a three part Guinness-off
A: Pours a deep brown ale with a 2.5 finger peanut head of fine quality. This falls slowly leaving a clean glass with no lacing, but a thick quilt of the same foam throughout the life. There is excellent clarity where available.
S: Caramelized sugars, cocoa, tomato paste, hints of noble and earthy hops. Soil. Sweet and juicy smelling malts.
T: Light malts are accentuated with some hay, soil, metallic flavors. Some tomato flavors (sorry folks, thatís what I taste). Finish is sweet and bready - rye bready.
M: Creamy but light in body with lo carbonation. finish is thick and slimy. I like the mouthfeel on this beer.
O: this is a classic. I have never really liked it much. Not a bad beer, but only good once or twice annually.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
14.9 oz nitro can from Evergreen Discount into my 2010 World Cup Guinness glass. Black appearance with a lasting, light tan head, looks nice. Aroma of sweet malts, milk chocolate, caramel, toffee and a light roast. Similar flavor with a strange tangy, metallic, light tartness. A light body with a very thin feel. Overall, itís hardly drinkable, perhaps this can was way past its prime. Drain pour imminent!

Iíve drank more pints of this than i care to remember, always best from the pump at the pub. It looks amazing with itís creamy head which usually lasts all the way to the bottom of the glass. Guinness is something I will always come back to and luckily it is served pretty much everywhere here!

The old stand by. Flavors of coffee, roasted nuts and milk chocolate. Dry finish, lighter than it looks.

Black with a tan head. Creamy chocolate/coffee bitterness with a smooth finish. One of my favorite standards.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Snyggt i glaset blir det ju trots all med hjälp av gaspatronen. Tentaplugg till domarutbildningen. Kategori 7A. Dry stout. I princip helt svart. Brända dofter av kaffe och svartmalt. Möjligen choklad. Ingen tydlig humling. Lätt kropp. (Ville minnas denna som tyngre men den här är ju riktigt tunn). Beska är tydlig, sannolikt kan den vara maltrelaterad (svartmalt?). Låg kolsyra. Kaffe och brända toner. Sträv.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good old Guinness, drunk on Tap from the Bad Hersfeld News Café: deep dark, almost black appearance but mahogany when held to the light, the creamy head and lacing remain intact to the last drop. (Thank you, nitrogen!) Guinness Draught has a light coffee aroma and a rather bitter taste with a dry finish. It's a nice beer for a winter evening with friends.
---Cheers until next time!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great dense head, the best ever. Aroma is weak yeasty, a bit of milky coffee. Taste is sour and dry. Finish is slightly dry. Needs more character.
