UPDATED: OCT 17, 2018 As black as eternal oblivion, as bold as man who stands up for what he believes in, as beautiful as a goddess and as brilliant as Leonardo Dicaprio’s award winning “The Revenant”. This stout will eventually knock any man out.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2018 Doing this just as it is my all time favorite and go to beer! Love love Guinness!

FlightLees22 (262) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2018 Veel smaken van mout, met een drop/koffie achtig aroma. Het donker zwarte bier met nauwelijks schuim is wel te herkennen uit duizenden.

Odgazowane, bezsmakowe, płaskie i nudne do bólu. Jedynie piana robi wrażenie.

14.9 oz can. Smells of malt, caramel, hints of coffee. Pours very dark in the glass. Tastes very sweet, caramelly, too sweet for my tastes. Very thick, though there are bubbles it tastes/felt flat to me. Finish was sickly sweet to me. Take my rating with a grain of salt, I know lots of people who love this, but it is not the beer for me.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2018 This is the one you are looking for if you're trying to recapture the Guinness pub experience at home, including the nitrogen-driven cream on the top. At least, that's the way things have been since 1970ish. For many people, Guinness and stout are practically synonyms, so it's obviously a yardstick beer - even though it has been surpassed by a good few others. Wins a couple for bonus points for being unmistakable.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2018 Piwo bardzo gladkie, w aromacie glownie kawa. Bardzo efektowne przy nalewaniu i piana ktora nie znika calkowicie po minucie w szkle. Trudno tutaj mowic o wysyceniu bo jednak ten azot troche inaczej sie zachowuje dzieki czemu pijac nie ma takiego uczucia gryzienia na jezyku. Jedyna wada jest to ze w tym piwie nie za duzo sie dzieje, wodniste a w aromacie glownie kawa bez fajerwerkow. Goryczka raczej slaba. Jak ktos szuka piwa pijalnego na dluzsze posiedzenie to mozna sie skusic.

Had tasted this lots of times, but never rated it. Little aroma, also caused by the fine froth, which however gives it the distintictive velvety taste experience. Typical roast malt notes of coffee and chocolate, luckily not the sweet ones, so the pleasant bitterness stays in the forefront. None of the flavors are too dominant, keeping it easy to drink, even slightly watery, though not in a bad way.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2018 Happy this cheap tipple is back on the menu since going vegan this year! Nice heady smooth stoutvfor relaxing or with food!

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2018 On draft at Abbotts Bar & Grill. You can’t go wrong with an ice cold Guinness on draft. This is a classic stout going back centuries. It’s an elixir of life when you consider all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it contains. It’s hard for me to believe it’s only rated average on RB. The aroma, look, taste, feel all shout classic stout! Enjoy this one.
