Can. Color: Very dark ruby, nice and stable dense light brown head. Taste: Very smooth, creamy, roasted malt, grainy, below medium sweet. Very lightly bitterness. Under medium body. Difficult to rate. Above all, a long time ago Guinness was my first and almost only stout. A classical and in that time a favourite. I was looking forward to taste this one again after so many years. But over the years I have tasted so many other and better tasting stouts. Nowadays this Guinness is pretty disappointing...

50cl can at Gyhallmanti. Appearance: dark brown to black with medium off-white head. Aroma: roasted malts, some coffee, cacao and a hint of soysauce. Taste: medium sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of roasted malts ans coffee. Palate: light to medium body, watery texture and medium carbonation.

440ml draught can in my yard. pint glass. Pours and sets beautifully like only guinness does.Looks great, black as any beer gets with a lovely persistent 1 finger head of pale coffee cream coloured creamy thick head. Dark fruit kind of nose with a tiny, and I stress tiny, hint of alcohol behind the eyes. Palate, nice and bitter with a hint of coffee and liqurorice, yes I'm from Blighty, but nothing major. Guinness have a great base beer here and I wish they would concentrate on it instead of messing around trying to compete with craft brewers doing pale ale and lager. It's my go to beer in the standard pub (I'm a big fan of craft IPA which isn't widely available ) But it's so unexplored. If guinness messed around with this brew they could compete with any craft stouts and imperial stouts.

The more I've diversified in the stouts I drink, the harder I find it to come back to a pint of guinness draught. The long, roasted finish is still welcome and the bitterness is to my liking but I find the texture too thick and the prospect of getting through a pint is increasingly daunting. I'll always have a soft spot for it however and I'm sure I'll get through a few ice cold pints of it in the summer.

Kolor: Ciemnobrązowy, klarowny. Piana: Beżowa, dość obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, gęsta i trwała, pięknie zdobi szkło. Zapach: Ogólnie ciemne słody, delikatna kawa z cukrem, czekolada i metaliczność. Smak: Lekko palony słód, kawa, ale bardziej taka lura, goryczka praktycznie nieobecna. Wysycenie niskie, piwo jest gładkie, ale też wodniste.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2018 Piana, lacing - mistrzostwo. W aromacie delikatna kawa i dużo żelaza. Łagodne, gładkie zostawia wytrawny, lekko kwaśny posmak. Brak ciała i jakiegoś motywu głównego który by opisywał smak.

W Guinnesie najlepsza jest drobnopęcherzykowa piana . Oczywiście niezapomniany jest efekt rozprowadzania piany .W aromacie paloność, troszkę czekolady, kawy. W smaku przedłużenie aromatu. Bardzo gładkie, kremowe, jednocześnie niestety wodniste.

Piwo czarne, klarowne (?). Piękna, śmietankowa, drobopęcherzykowa i niezwykle trwała piana. Aromat nieintesywny- wyczuwalne nuty czekoladowo-kawowe przywodzące na myśl cukierki Kopiko, trochę słodu. Piwo z niemal zerowym wysyceniem. W smaku zaskakująco lekko- wręcz wodniście. Przede wszystkim czuć kawę z nieco słodowym tłem. Trunek wygląda obłędnie, ale smak nie zachwyca.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 Tap at Angel’s Piekny gesty, czarny stout ze smietankowa pianka. W aromacie troszke kawy, slodu i drozdze. W smaku palone slody i dobrze zbalansowane z tym drozdze. Ciala bardzo malo i wysycenia rownie malo. Najbardziej pijalny i uniwersalny stout jakiego znam.
