3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Der Schaum ist wirklich ein Knaller, ließe ich das Bier über Nacht stehen, wäre die Krone wahrscheinlich immernoch perfekt. Das Bier selber kommt weniger gut weg, der Antrunk ist dezent malzig, durch die fehlende Kohlensäure wirkt es leicht abgestanden. Der Mittelteil, der wiederrum ein herbes Aroma vertritt, ist mit einem wässrigen Kern wohl am schlechtesten gelungen. Der Abgang schmeckt zuerst künstlich, das röstmalzige Aroma, das noch lange im Mund bleibt, kann ihn jedoch noch retten.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Typical creamy lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Very bitter. Little bit of apple fruitiness and milk well hidden behind the typical dry stout taste.
Guinness is best fresh from tap in Dublin, but this can is not a bad substitute. 8 4 7 3 14 =3.6
Tap: Finnegan’s in Hengelo. As it should be: bitter, roasted malt, smooth and creamy. Thin and even a bit watery, in spite of the creaminess. Still a great session beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 can’t 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 they’re 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; I’ll fix it up later. I just wanted to get a rating up here.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Draught: Rerate: When it's served properly, for me it's one of the greatest beers to look at. Has an almost black colour with a huge creamy chocolatehead. The aroma and flavour is slightly roasted and have notes of chocolate. A slightly bitter aftertaste, that last long. Still a great beer, but not as great as i used to think.
Original rate 4.6: It's difficult to imagine, that stout beer can be made better.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Keg, Pasteurised. We all know what it loos like but the flavour has definitely become thinner over the years. There is still the dry, coffee like almost powdery mouthfeel. There is a treacely finish, but ultimate experience, I think not!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark clear brown stout with a creamy nitro light moka head. A light chocolate malt aroma, coming more clearly as beer warms up (served way too cold). In mouth, a nice peaty malt, roasted notes, especially when imbibing the foam. Lighter bodied, but overall, much superior to what we get in Canada. On tap at O’Neill’s, terminal 3, Heathrow. Mid Nov. 2006.
