2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: This really is a nice looking pour. Dark brown, bordering on black with that patented creamy mocha colored head.
S: Very thin and watery on the nose. I pick up a few hints of roasted malt and maybe some chocolate.
T: Not too much better than the nose. A bit of roasted malt flavor and maybe a touch of chocolate and coffee, but overall it’s very bland.
M: I do enjoy the creamy feel the nitro gives. Unfortunately, it seems to (have helped to) kill the rest of the beer.
D: This is really disappointing. I recall early on in my drinking days when Guinness was a fairly enjoyable beer, but it seems to have gone the way of so many other mass produced items.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 Very dark ruby-brown. Thick tan head. Yes, they drew a frickin’ shamrock in it. I remember when this beer wasn’t so damn cutesy. Aroma? On a nitrotap? Hardly any flavour, either. Very watery, just a hint of roast, nuts and maybe vanilla. Artificially thick body. Tart, watery finish. You can’t even call this dry anymore - they’ve cut back the hops and the malt sweetness is much more in evidence as a result. Downgrade from 2.7 overall.

Black with creamy white head, Fabolous looks... however thin palate (watery) . Roasted notes - coffee mainly. Drinkable but too watery for my taste. OK, sometimes drink it at the local Irish pub!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 On tap, the only proper way to drink Guinness. A thick, pleasantly bitter, and heavy dry stout with a slightly bitter aftertaste. There was a time when I loved this beer, but after refining my taste buds, this is a sub-par stout beaten by hundreds if not thousands of others. Decent though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The main thing, or maybe the only thing I like about this beer is the dark brown almost black color with almost no head. The rest is just average to me. Not bad not good, and not very special to me.
