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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black. Tan head. Slightly skunky, burnt/roasted aroma. Mealy flavors. Nice and sweet first, earthy roasted flavor, medium bodied, black coffe flavor, and finishes with strong lingering dry bitter hops. A world classic. By no means my favorite dry stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black like the draught, but the head isnít as creamy. Many of the same flavors as the original, but with CO2 itís just not the same.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little more punch than draft Guinness. Slightly more bitter, roasty, chocolatey and astringent. Very, very good beer. Very good stout and would drink this one again.
