Used to rate this beer, but alas my palate has evolved (or become more pretentious). Thin on the palate with little flavour.

I dunno many people are fond of guinness on tap but not me. Just a stout version of a pale lager. Boring, metallic and chemical. Looks nice with the nitrogen head and has a full body, but the flavour is watered down.

DialSquare (2306) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2010
12 oz bottle. Blackish pour with a medium tan head and sheets of lacing. Roasty malt and tobacco aroma. Thin watery palate and taste. +1 for nostalgia sake, but not so good. Better on tap from what I can remember.

nitro can, into guinness pint glass. pours pitch black with the infamous nitro beige head. there isnít much going on in the aroma. a little bit of roasted malts and coffee, but very mild. taste is the same, with a slightly bitter and dry finish. mouthfeel seems thick, but it is watery for a stout. at least for my likings it is. iíve always loved to call guinness "best crappy beer on earth". it is the perfect pint when out with your friends at a regular bar or pub, but has nothing on some of the fine craft beers.

OK draft. Extremely dark in color..not much in aroma and slight metallic in taste. Not bad, but not great.

sawmill2188 (21) - Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pours pitch black with thin, dark tan head. Smells of hopps, smoke, and earthy notes. Surprisingly light, but in a bad way - makes it seem watered down. Almost no carbonation, very watery! Palate is light. Overall, kind of disappointing.

Mjollnir (384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2009
Tap. Pours with the trademark thick persistent head. Not much going on with the nose. Vague hints of roasted flavours make it through, but burnt flavours dominate with a mild bitterness in the finish. Not as thick as youíd expect from its appearance, and very soft carbonation.

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours almost black with a creamy off white head. Very light aroma, just a hint of roasted malt. Light, creamy body. Flavor is lightly roasted with a bit of a sour edge. This is the most over rated beer on this site.

zenkis (497) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 15, 2013
Pours almost black with reddish tones, lovely creamy, thick head. Aroma - I can catch only creamy notes and far away fruity, sweetish hops. Weird taste of creamy, milky pattern with touch of roasted bitter, grassy hops bitter, light dry finish in palate, watery-too watery to be good brew for me. Low intense in aroma, but that is so desirable in dark beer.
