Awsume beer off the tap. Sucks out of a can. Very filling skip dinner if you are having a few.

There are some flaws in this beer, but for a mass market product there is none greater.

can’t say anything that hasn’t been said before about Guinness. I had been told that beer, like coffee, was an acquired taste. So I decided I would acquire it. I didn’t know much about beer, but it seems many think Guinness is the best, so that’s where I started, and I’ve never looked back. An all time fav.

poured from a bottle into a pint glass. looks really good but doesnít have much of an aroma. when i first started drinking more sophisticated beers i thought this one was great but now i think its light as far as stouts go. still a good beer with a nice finish

One of my favorites. Aroma is malty and grainy. The taste is sweet at first and bitter as it goes down. No carbonation, just as I like it. Palate is pleasing and light. Excellent beer to chug, a pitcher is an easy task to down. Aftertaste is alright, leaves me wanting chips and salsa for some reason.

One of the worlds greatest beers if you can get it fresh and on tap, otherwise donít bother. The canned and bottled stuff is just disappointing. Very dark and and almost roasted coffee flavor. Also it is so smooth itís like drinking skim milk.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2010 Creamy, bitter, soft carbonation, coffee, medium bitterness, long finish, great taste. One of the most accessible stout for beginners, because itís bitterness is very manageable.

Very dark body with smooth texture, thick creamy head. Slight coffee taste with chocolate notes with a nice bitterness. Very drinkable

A classic as far as Iím concerned. Very filling, but surprisingly light, so something you can enjoy without many worries.

One of my all time favorites. Usually drink it in the winer time because of itís heavy nature. When poured correctly, it can be a beautiful sight.
