Deep and dark. Slightly burnt roast taste and rich thicker content. Stronger of taste than of alcohol content. A good classic stout smoothie.

This is definitely a dark beer. Iím Irish, but this is too much. First off, it tastes flat. The CO2 thing does nothing for me. Why do these beers always come in sizes more than 12ozs. I can struggle through one but, Not my first choice in any state of mind.

Bottle, draught, can. This is one of the all time great beers. Fabulous aroma, great bitter roasted malt flavor with a great creamy thick mouthfeel. I love to watch it pour down the sides of the pint and see that black gold climb upward towards its milky thick head. Like motherís milk. I can drink Guinness draught all day long. Great stout!

One of the greats! Smooth, with a slight bitterness. The first couple of sips are thick, then they get smoother as you go. The aroma and taste of coffee is not overpowering but adds to itís overlall flavor.

First time I had ever had Guinness. On tap. Not as thick as Iíve been told. Did have the beautiful head and dark, almost black body. Takes a drink, hmmmm, not as bitter as Iíve heard too, almost sweet. If I wasnít at a concert, and perhaps eating a dessert or smoking a pipe, this would taste much better.

What can I say, with both my parents being Irish I would be shot if I didnít have a place in my heart for Guinness. It is an aquired taste, either you hate it or you love it, it is a real beer lovers beer, full rich body, thick dark head, strong lingering after taste. When poured correctly into a pint glass there isnít a finer sight to see.

A pint of espresso please. Not really! The darkness is the big thing here. And the creamy head. Flavours have softened over time.
