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

Guinness Draught ma niesamowitą pianę, utrzymuje się do samego końca picia. Kolor czarny. Aromat kawowy. Smak kawowy, mleczny.

I don't know what to say. It's not awful, but it's not great. I'll never drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The "American Standard of Stouts" Guinness does not disappoint. The taste is symbolic of stouts from the UK though Imperial Russian have come to dominate the stout game. 10 years ago this would have been a 10.

This is one of my favorite beers. Nice aroma; smooth and creamy on the palate. Dark color with a thick head. Nice, malty taste; slightly bitter. Geat, classic beer.

Wygląda wspaniale, pachnie nawet nieźle, ale jest tak wodniste w smaku, że nie ma się czym zachwycać.

Can 50cl. (with nitrogen-widget). Deep dark brown nearly black color, good dense capuccino-colored head, mostly lasting (because of the nitrogen-widget I presume), good lacing; aroma sweet malts, roasted, bit tobacco, chocolate; taste medium sweet and bitter, milk chocolate, creamy; medium body, creamy to oily texture, at first lively, later soft carbonation, aftertaste slightly roasted and bittersweet, cardboard; classic.

Poured exactly according to the video.

Pours a neato looking dark brown to black color. Creamy beige, long lasting head. Nice lacing.

Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Also of cream. But thereís also a small amount of medium roasted malt.

Taste is creamy and sweet. Low bitterness. Low alcohol. The chocolate and roasted malt are right at the end. But really only at the end. It tastes good, but not a lot of character.

Mouthfeel is great. Very creamy. Very smooth. Very drinkable. Itís watery. A light-bodied stout.

Overall, I like it a lot. Itís fun to drink. Has a great head and lacing start to finish. I could go into how it brings back memories, but I wonít. Itís good, but not great. Certainly worth a try!
