Pours dark brown almsot black with a creamy white head that laces and lasts for a long time. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malts with a bit of coffee and chocolate. A pretty creamy smooth taste with a pretty thin body. Finishes smooth and overall a great standard for a dry stout

Okay, the only reason this doesn’t score higher is that I find it the least Amazing of it, Original and the best, none are my favourite drink but are still the best all around, here goes.
The Draught version of Guinness Boasts a powerful, deep complexity of Roasted Barley, Heaps of malt, Target hops, and traces of Nugget, along with it’s rich mighty yeasty beastly liquorice.
It pours...it pours magic, the blackest beer Stouts and Blackest of it’s family, dense, formidable, brave hidden ruby beauty, with a strong, defining world class head.
On the palate is very heavy, creamy, velvety with minimal carbonation, and in it’s taste is near perfection, staple Guinness harsh and dominating malts and barley, roasted coffee, background’s of vanilla pod, liquorice, turmeric and Galena hop’s along with side hint’s of nugget and and a little target.
It gives the impression of eating a meal, a Sunday roast in liquid form, with a powerful burnt chocolate and aniseed finish, very bitter, long and merciless rattling of your mouth, simply exceptional!

One of my favourite beers of all time. It’s hard to explain why, but maybe everyone has that with a particular beer.

After all these years, it still has one of the prettiest pours. It’s black w/ a retaining & thick tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma is rather subtle w/ a little bit of dark malt poking through. The taste is relatively plain & dull but the mouthfeel really makes up for it! It’s very light & creamy on the palate making it highly drinkable! Pretty darn good for being 1 of the world’s most popular!

One of the best in my opinion. If the bar has it I must drink it at least a pint or more

Black colour with weak light brown head. Aroma is weak, similar the flavour: roasted malts, little malty and with slightly bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colore nero impenetrabile, schiuma densa e molto persistente color nocciola.
Forte aroma di liquirizia, deboli note di caffè e cacao.
Corpo pieno, poco carbonata.
Al palato prevale sempre la liquirizia, in un secondo momento si percepisce caffè tostato e cacao, con una nota amaricante sul finale; a tratti lievemente "piccante".

Hard not to love a good ol’ Guinness. There’s a ton of great stouts out there, but its easy to go back to this when I’m at a pub that doesn’t have a wide selection. You can’t go wrong!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copenhagen 6/4 2015. 44 cl can from Føtex. The black can with the golden harp. Dramatic Sound effect when opening. Pours muddy brown which separates into black beer with dense creamy white head. Aroma is rather weak. A little salty - not much else. Very soft and silky carbonation. Taste is malty with a nice but not very distinct bitterness. Like lukewarm coffee (in a nice way). Fine Irish draught - in a can.
