2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

You folks reading this all know what this tastes like. What surprises me is how different this is than the draught. Itís better imo.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very dark brown. Thick pillowy tan head. All kinds of lacing.
Aroma is of dark roast malt. Coffee and chocolate are in there too, like you would expect from a stout. Thereís something else too, canít quite make it out.
Taste is good. A little watery. An excellent balance between hops and malt. Itís bitter, itís sweet. But itís not too much either way. Itís almost a head to head matchup between chocolate and coffee and having a draw.
Mouthfeel is medium, not exactly what you expect from a stout. Itís watery. It finishes a little bitter. Itís a little lower in alcohol than I expect from a stout. But still, itís super drinkable.
Overall, itís excellent. A very drinkable stout. Itís iconic, but this is made in Canada. Iím a little disappointed. Still, very tasty Certainly worth trying!

Bottle gifted by my cousin (to your health!) poured into a glass mug.
Wish I had a bar next door with Guinness on tap so I could compare to a draught but here goes...Aroma - roasted malt and brown sugar. Ap - dark with a tan head - no surprise here. Taste - 70% roast malt, 10 % hop bitter, 10 % bitter chocolate, 5 % roast malt-cherry, 5% - other? Palate - smooth but also carbonated at the same time. I have a home brew stout aging in the basement and will add an edit to compare it in about another two weeks.

Bottle. Much better than Guinness Stout draft! Medium hoppy aroma with actual discernible carbonation. Balanced hoppy taste. Slightly bitter finish.

12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with a light brown head and lacing. Aroma of roasted grain, wheat, bitter chocolate. Similar flavor with a mild roast bitterness and a light dry, lingering finish. There is just something off about it. No thanks. Pairing: Dropkick Murphys - Iím Shipping Up to Boston

Bottle @ Butcher Block, Sarasota, FL. Dark, rich, chocolaty aroma. Tastes great. A tiny bit too bitter on the palate, but the overall deliciousness negates this. Overall, a tasty & refreshing dark brew. Just disappointed itís not brewed in Ireland.

A pleasant dry stout. Nothing crazy good, but good none-the-less. Something to drink when there isnít much better.

Whiffs of chocolate, coffee and some detectable hops. Great espresso bite with some chocolate coming beforehand. Lingering dry finish with espresso and hops closing the door

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a black from a bottle with a thick khaki head. No nose to speak of, perhaps dampened by the pillowy head. Flavor is of mild coffee, maybe a little cherry jam. Dry in the mouth, overall I feel the mouthfeel is where this beer stands out comparatively, other characteristics are kind of meh.
