Not as good as the extra stout -- it just doesn’t have as much flavor to go with the bitterness.

For a widely available stout, this is pretty solid. Had it many times. Roasty flavors and aromas with just a hint of cocoa. Extremely smooth. Pretty good go to stout.

Recenzja z 19.11.2013. Kolor czarny, bordowo-brunatny pod swiatlo. Piana niska, ale bardzo drobnopecherzykowa, praktycznie nie opada, tak mocno oblepia szklo, ze tworzy ciagla warstwe, azot zrobil swoje. W zapachu dominuje pustka, minimalny slod i palonosc. W smaku wodniste, ale jednoczesnie lekko slodkie, lekko palone, lekka dziwna slodycz, ale jakby nie pochodzaca od slodu tylko od czegos innego, lekka owocowosc. Goryczki brak, no moze minimalne goryczkowe odczucie w ustach, ale to tyle co nic. Wysycenie niskie.

Výčap Pivovar Guiness, Dublin. Krásna čierna farba s úžasným lavínovým efektom. Z kapučínovej farby sa postupne stáva čierna a hore je hustá, bledohnedá pena, ktorá drží celý čas. Úžasné. Vôňa sladová, horúca sladká čokoláda, kapučíno. Telo však extrémne vodové, jemne káva, horúca čokoláda, kapučíno. V pozadí jemná horkosť s trpkosťou. Pre mňa to bol fantastický zážitok a vždy budem tvrdiť, že Guinness Draught čapovaný v Dubline je úplne super oproti čapovanému v Bratislave.

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

Brewhemia (15) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Dark Brown stout. Nice ama of wood and toast. Really dull taste though. Light taste of coffee. Watery palate which I really don’t like. Not at all a good stout in my opinion.

I can’t say enough how much I love the liquid gold that is Guinness. I’ve tried many other stouts and I just can’t find one as smooth, delicious, and overall pleasing as the original stout.
