On tap @several places. Light coffee, caramel and spicy and roasted aromas. Pours very dark, murky, with really creamy tan head, persistent, good lacing. Oily texture, flat carbonation, medium body. Taste is really smooth, mild bitter, coffee and cocoa notes. Short aftertaste.

Pours a deep, chocolate brown with a large, creamy tan head with good lacing. Aroma is mild of roasted malt. Taste is medium sweet, a pinch bitter. Mouthfeel is great: soft and creamy, full bodied, with a lightly bitter finish. Overall, I enjoy Guinness as an everday beer: easy to drink and pleasant. It is not spectacular but a personal favorite (which feels so contradictory).

Keg served extra cold at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A black colour with a ruby tint and a thick creamy white head. Aroma of roasted malt, slight coffee, burnt toast and a little bit metallic. Taste of slight roasted malt, toast and a little cocoa. Smooth and creamy texture and light bodied. Soft chocolatey bitterness in the finish. Super smooth and easy drinking because it’s watery and light. 10 times better in Ireland but it’s still Guinness at the end of the day.

Can from Family Mart. Poured into an English tulip pint. Pitchblack color with a nice tan head. Slight aroma of toasted malt and toffee present. Tastes of roasted malt, toffee with a hint of woodiness...a little bit of hops noticeable as well. Nice smooth, dry finish. Solid enough.

Great stout, everyone should try this. Black pour with a perfect medium head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts, barley, and little hops.

Pnigro (3) - COSTA RICA - FEB 25, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 Poured from the bottle. Pleasant smell, very nice appearance. The head looks nice and feels great in the mouth. But taste is pretty bad. Would never drink again.

Es la primera que debería probar un bebedor que empiece a introducirse en las importadas. Esta todo dicho de ella, no voy a aportar nada nuevo.
