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.

Guiness is een veels te donker bier waar je bijna het gevoel hebt dat je er op moet kauwen. De bittere smaak doet je denken aan een te oud kopje koffie. Niet bier waardig.

As a red-headed Irishman I am obligated to love Guinness. The dark roasted flavor, creamy mouth feel, the characteristic head. I honestly feel closer to my Irish family with one in hand

Dark Brown stout. Nice ama of wood and toast. Really dull taste though. Light taste of coffee. Watery palate which I really donít like. Not at all a good stout in my opinion.

I canít say enough how much I love the liquid gold that is Guinness. Iíve tried many other stouts and I just canít find one as smooth, delicious, and overall pleasing as the original stout.

Iím a novice to beer, but this is a beautiful beer with good taste and a great, creamy mouth feel. When I think of a dry stout - this is what I think of.

Very dark beer with a nice, long lasting head. Roasted aroma, a bit milky taste. Not so sweet, rather salty with a bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Definitely a good beer, but not my style.

Nice roasty aroma, tan head, roasty stout flavor. Very good in every aspect except body. This one is so thin bodied. Extra stout is very similar but with more body.

Bottle.
Appearance: Deep chestnut to black body, opaque through all but the thinnest edges. A foamy yet creamy light tan head is perched on top.
Aroma: Big creamer aroma like coffee with a mild yeasty fruitiness and a prominent but mild roasted malt aroma. This actually smells much better than I remembered, but itís slightly off.
Taste: The flavor has a sour tinge to it with a watery intro. The flavor is really flat until the finish which gets slightly chalky with a nice creamy light chocolate mousse finish, a touch of roasted malts. This is really nice on the finish, shame everything else is meh.
Palate: This is watery, I get nitro beers, but this is basically creamy water.
Overall: Well I came here expecting to hate this beer. Iíve had it twice in my life before, not in a mixed drink of any sort, and have hated it. This isnít so bad, thereís a potential for something great but I canít help but get a going bad milk/creamer flavor and aroma.
