1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This poor excuse for a stout was offensive and fueled by the ever present of it being watered down. This flavorless crap was full of foamy head followed by a flat sensation without any of the tastes associated with its cousin. The color was the same as cocoa-cola- brown amber with a yellowish brown colorations arond the break. Hated this beer which I tasted in Baltimore.

Guinness is proof that god loves us. Thick creamy head, i usually get this stuff at a local irish pub at 4.50 a pint but worth every penny.

Poured with a thick, cream colored "permafoam" for a head. Nice, dark, coffee appearance. Flavor of roasted cold coffee. Body like water, only seemed thinner.

I bought a 4 pack of cans yesterday to celebrate St. Paddyís. Poured with a thick cream head because of the nitrogen widdget that lasted right thru to the end. Once poured the beer looks great as the foam bubbles rise to the top. Noticed that the settling does not last as long compaired to draught ordered in the pub. This beer has a light earthy smell and a rosted coffee taste. Very smooth and 1 of my favorites

"itís almost like a roasty iced coffee, with a watery mouthfeel"
Best rating I have ever heard for Guinness. A much better beer on tap and will always impress people if you order it, but not exceptional from the micro stouts that are available. You gotta love the settling characteristic of a freshly poured glass.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Poured from a Draught bottle in honor of St. Pattyís day. The widget in the bottle does a great job simulating the look of a Guinness poured at the pub. Pours opaque and black with a nice thick white head. Coffee aroma. Not a lot of flavor but whatís their has a hint of coffee. I love the mouth feel of nitro beers. Itís funny how thick this seemed when I was in high school and how thin it feels now.

This may not be the most complex stout out there, but it could well be the easist drinking and most refreshing taste...itís almost like a roasty iced coffee, with a watery mouthfeel which may lead to chuggin it back quick. One of the beers that got me into good beers.

Not a very flavorful beer. Usually what I order when Iím out at a bar with a limited selection. Nitrogenation is fun though. Nice, creamy head. Not good with all food, but still quite a good beer. Itís one that I almost always order.
