3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 brownish black appearance which does not let in even the smallest partical of light, frothy dark tan head...nutty, soil-like earthy aroma...bitter first impression, peanut-skin/salty/roasted and bitter flavors intertwined with dryness in the finish but still managing to leave a salty-nutty presence lingering on into eternity, I prefer a sweeter stout, but not bad for a dry stout

A good beer, but not as good as draft. This is more bitter, more hoppy, just plain more. It is not as nicely balanced as on tap, although it is still quite smooth. If you like stouts a lot, Iím sure youíve had it and probably liked it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Very dark brownish black, entirely opaque. Initially, an exceptional brown head that leaves an island of foam in the center of the glass. Lacing is spotty and brown. Overall look reminds me of a rootbeer float. Much more flavorful than Guinness Draght--hoppier and maltier. Pleasant sweet malty aroma and flavor combined with a distinct bitterness from the hops. Leaves a slight sticky feel on the tongue and tastes like it might have spent an extra week or two on the boat over. Overall, an excellent beer.

A superior stout that has a smoothness most should envy. A perfect brew on many levels.

It has been a while since I have tried this so take this with a grain of salt. It is very similar to the draught, but much crisper and bitter. Overall I did not like it as much as the draught. The problem is that I now cannot drink the draught without getting sick...

This was a decent brew, a free beer I found in my fridge. Nice taste with balanced bitterness. Has a slight roasted coffee after-taste.

i canít believe iíve never rated guinness. mayhap cause iím always knee up to a bar minding my own beeswax...anyway, what could i possibly say. iíll let my numbers speak for themselves. only a beer lover will love guinness. (and i love it even though iím a bit tired of it)

A bit too bitter for my liking. I like the taste, but the aftertaste is a bit overpowering and leaves your mouth dry. Nice roasted or smokey flavor. Not as good as Draught, but maybe it is to you if you really like Stouts.
