4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Alright, I admit it took time to educate my palate to the goodness of Guinness. Two years of drinking black and tans and I was riding without the training wheels. Full of flavor, rich and hearty ... if itís on tap, Iíll drink it anytime and anywhere.

Faint roasted barley aroma. Dark red to black with tan nitrogen head. Flavors of toast, roasty, chocolate, coffee with indefinable acidity. Dry finish.

Not sure how Iíve never rated. Tap most recently. Great dark body with great, lasting tan head. Decent bitterness, but body is thin without nitro (and compared to other stouts). Still, a gateway beer into other good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color is opaque, dark chocolate with a thick, creamy beige head. Smell is toasted oats, nuts, and cereal. Taste is black coffee, dark chocolate, slight toffee and finishes slightly bitter with cereal notes. Nitro carbonation makes this a super creamy beer. Not my favorite but slowly growing on me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 The world-famous Irish nectar and the archetypical dry stout, tasted from can and from tap. Classic dense, beige head made out of tiny nitro bubbles, colour as good as black. Very, very creamy, velvety and bit oily mouthfeel more so from can than from tap, iron, black coffee and sweet tobacco aroma, taste a strong roasted bitterness, bit metallic, bit thinnish, finishing in a full, but not very long bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I do not know why I have not rated this before. Drank from the bottle. Aroma is chocolate, nuts, coffee. Taste is much the same with a slight bitterness at the end. Medium bodied with very light carbonation and an oily mouth feel. One of my few go to beers when I want something familiar and good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Zwart bier met romig schuim. Smaak is rook en licht bitter, niet zoet. Blijft helaas niet erg lang hangen. Toch een erg goed bier.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A classic beer, for someone just getting into stouts. It's clean and not offensive to taste. You can taste the caramel and hits of oats. But be sure, this is a light tasting stout. Great in a dank wet pub on a Friday night.
