Good beer, even better in a half & half. The legendary head is a delight to behold atop the smooth blackness below. Mild aroma belies the bitterness, though it isnít as rounded as it should be.

Can. 4.2 ABV. Creamy off-white fully lasting head. Malty average aroma, very thin flavor, short finish. Red-brown colour. Not a good beer!!!!!!!

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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

3.8 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: Finneganís 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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
on tap-pours a deep, rich, tan head that laces nicely. Color is black, with the white rivulets condensing. Aroma is coffee and malt. Taste is coffee. Nicely done, but not my taste.
