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.

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!

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
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 itís 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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 My goodness! My Guinness. A lot can be - and has been - said about this beer. Its iconic status is basically unparalleled in the beer world - and for good reason. Guinness is simply wonderful. The thick, creamy head; the dark stout below...I canít think of another beer so recognizable. People have different opinions about Guinness and its taste. I usually detect hints of coffee and chocolate. I always detect hints of complete deliciousness. Some people disagree with me, and theyíre just stupid. I lived in Dublin for five months, so I have more than a special place for Guinness in my heart. And Guinness really is good for you. A 12oz serving has 9.9 carbs and 110 calories, which is way better than most beers of this caliber. I realize that this entry is a bit rambling and disjointed; Iíll fix it up later. I just wanted to get a rating up here.

BOTTLE. POURED A DARK COLOR WITH DARK LARGE HEAD. LOVE TO WATCH THE CASCADE. MEDIUM AROMA. FLAVOR WAS COMPLEX COMBINATION OF MALT, BARLEY AND SWEET FINISH. MORE FINISH AS IT WARMED.
