3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours almost black with slight red mahogany edges. It always looks so cool when the grey-brown bubbles floculate when pouring, ending as the creamiest, most staying head in history. Aroma is, as always, mildly sweet, with a roasted edge. Flat and creamy mouthfeel, letting the beer glide down easily. Flavour begins sweet, then gets more roasted, and thus, bitter. Dry and creamy, sweet and roasted.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 "Draught" from can. Black and white; and pours in the right Guinness way. Malt and licorice aroma. Initial impression is a very watery beer, but soon a strong malt/hops bitterness takes over. Aftertaste is quite short.
*The actual draught beer is just as watery.
*Xtra Cold doesnít make much of a difference, and certainly not to the better.

Iíve tried Guinness Draught right at the main brewery in Dublin. What a lovely smell there is all over the city from the brewery. Guinnes, Guinness Guinness, oh my goodness my Guinness. Nice black colour and what a beautiful nice foamy head. Nice aroma of roasted malt coffee. Some what bitter though nice round taste with roasted malt, coffee and some sweetness to it. Great creamy mouthfeel! Nice little bitterness in the aftertaste. A great beer...if you like pitch black bit bitter beers. To some, unfortunately, it tastes horrible and flat. But we have all different tastes for beer. Try to put a bit of lemon in your next Guinness.

Itís (almost) always possible to get a Guinnes, no matter where on earth you are - and that is nice, if you are a wine allergic and stuck in a country with thin lager beers. Itís black, and it has a nice, creamy head. Both the aroma and flavour have notes of roasted malt and bitter licorice, but I would like it to be thicker and more oily, actually I think itís quite watery on the palate. Itís nice - itís just like a Guinness should be....

Bottle. Opened with a bubbly squeal of widget. Poured creamy brown/tan. Fine beige head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. It is a bit watery. The flavor is light roasted malt. There is a bit of bitter. The Bud of Ireland. Damn, but I wish the Bud of America was 1% this flavorful. Good to drink. Something of a session stout!
