Like a meal in a bottle. Guinness is good for special occasions and chilling. Ive only had it a few times but I liked it.

There are many many nicer stout. Mainstrem stout like ovbious Irish rivial Murphys Stout is way more flavourfol. I know Guinness looks cool with that werid nitrogeon head.Woah shit give me the Sri lanka Lion sout.Thatís beautiful beer. The former is-ok.Dry and smoke flavor.Quiet watery.

I love Guinness on Tap. If the Bar Tender does it correctly, the beer is amazing from top to bottom. The Head is very creamy. The flavor of the rest is just as smooth. How ever, even though its nice to have at home, I was disappointed with it in the bottle. I would say, stick to the Tap. Great Classic.

To be fair I have allways had a soft spot for Guinness. The can version of this classic stout looses a good bit of its flavor, but not enought to call it anything but guinness. However, it does retain the smooth creamy feel as one drinks it. As well the traditional sweet coffee like aroma is still quite prevalent.

I am very disappointed in the Irish for coming up with this beer, I expect better from such fine drinkers.

This is my favorite beer. Its definitely best on tap, but the bottles and cans do it justice. Thick head and robust flavor. It’s a meal in a glass. Best part is that they have it just about everywhere worth going.

Guinness outside of western Europe is nothing short of a disappointment for anyone who has enjoyed the real thing. Assuming this the same Guinness one would be served if stationed on the Emerald Isle, this Irish classic gets its’ own chapter in the history book of brew. It is difficult to match the experience of being served a Guinness in the proper setting. Novelty aside, the well established flavor and musk of a real Guinness will always leave one with the fond memory of how a stout should be. If possible, try not to drink the foreign rip offs.
