Drank the extra cold version while at a pub in London with Malou 31/5/2014. Did not really like it. Powdery foam. Also no explicit taste (when warmed up as well). Bit of chemical salmiac, licorice. Not my thing.

Pours alive inside nearly black with the Guinness thick white foam. Has a slight sweet aroma. Uncarbonated flavor of roasted malts and a little chocolate roast.

16oz can pours a dark brown with a frothy light tan head that doesnít last. Sweet molasses a little roast and biscuit malts for aroma. Medium bodied but really watery midway through leading to a semi dry finish with some bitter hops present. Sugary. I understand thereís some history here but most of what I taste is mass produced novelty.

This beer is completely overrated. First off, it is only drinkable by tap, the can and bottle versions aren't that great. It's not that bad in the beginning because the flavor is decent, but the palate is too heavy, and by the end of the pint, the flavor is tiring.

Nitrogen bottle, deep brown, cool looking pour. Dark caramel, malty aroma. Pretty thin, watery body. overall lacking any real personality.

What can be said about this worldwide known beer...watery, with just a little notes of roasted coffee. A long aftertaste. Appearance is surely its best. It seems overrated to me.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 12-13-07 tap. Great appearance - nice thick black with a creamy lasting head. Decent smell - raosted chocolate. Flavor is bland. Nothing really to it. Disappointing palate - weak and pretty watery and thin. Nothing too great about the flavor.

Can from the LCBO. Seems like the right thing to have on St. Patrickís day. Pours a deep opaque black with some very thick and creamy off-white head. Smell is not very strong, a bit of roasted malt, and a bit of sweetness, just not much there at all. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with not much carbonation. Taste is generally inoffensive. Starts a bit sweet, gets a bit bitter and roasted, then leaves a short slightly bitter aftertaste. Well, itís a Guinness, no denying it, just a bit boring.

Guinness in common, malty and extremely drinkable stout. In aroma coffee is noticable and the same for taste. Average sort
