Good head, thick and dark taste, but not one you want to pull an all-nighter with. This is the one you drink to impress that exquisitely dressed female at the end of the bar, drinking a Mich-light.

Looks and smells great, but is a bit disappointing - too watery; there is not enough kick in the taste for my taste :)

You canít see through it, and that is a good start. It smells great, and goes down very smoothly. It leaves a pleasant bitter taste in itís wake.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2004 Not too bad, its not as heavy and thick as a bag a rocks, which you may believe just by looking at it - of course its still a pretty good meal. A nice drinking stout.

Extremely dark in color, fluffy tan head. Taste roasty and typical stout-like. What can I say about Guinness except that I wish I could remember the flavors of the one I drank in London, it probably would have made a difference...

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.
