Guinness is a very dark brown almost black looking in appearance. It gives off rich smells of licorice. It is a very filling beer but it is pretty strong. I am not a big fan of the beer.

12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Nose of caramel and roasted malt. Taste of bittersweet cocoa, black coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, molasses and earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish. Good balance of complexity and richness of flavors. Not too heavy. Medium carbonation. Alcohol well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Could be smoother but generally a crisp easy drinking stout. Love the 5% ABV.

It's definitely a Guinness beer. I wish it had a widget in the bottle but does not. Still though, a decent dark beer for not a lot of money. I'd buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml can poured at home. Honestly donít remember where I got it. Itís been in my beer fridge forever. Not my first, nor last time Iíve had a guinness. Pours tan in color and settles to a dark black. Thick creamy head that stays forever. Malty, molasses flavour, that is actually kind of watery (compared to what one would expect by looking at it). It has earned its reputation for a reason.

This beer is a classic. I had the North American one. Heard the original is different and has a better taste. Nice bourbon sweetness taste makes it worthwhile.

12oz bottle in snifter. Dark brown w/ tall foamy head. Aroma of German pumpernickel bread and rye. Not as dry and more bitter than I seem to remember this. Tastes nice and chocolate-y, and is quite quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thechasm442 (345) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle to a pint glass. The beer pours a dark ruby brown with a thick tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is roasted barley, dark chocolate, and grassy hops. Taste is very roasty up front. Flavors of coffee and baking chocolate come in as well as a kind of earthy floral flavor in the background. Mouthfeel is pretty thin and itís easy to drink. Not a bad session stoug.

A touch of coffee, alcohol, and prunes on the nose. Nice dark pour and a big fluffy brown head. A balanced body. Notes of toasty malt, deep fruit, bright carbonation, a little alcohol. It's really a pretty good beer for how widely produced it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
