UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 Went to Ireland and had it right out of the tap! The aroma was delightful and palate quite pleasing with the dark roasted taste. I love Guinness and was amazed at how well the draught bottled tasted like the actuall Tap. Grat job with the little dudad in the bottle injecting CO2 when you open it to keep that fresh tatse!

Drunk at the Guiness Factory, Dublin, Ireland. What an amazing beer from an amazing brewery. If you think its good where you've had it then wait to you go to the factory in Dublin, it will blow your mind. Think, creamy pints or nourishment. Unmistakable white head that takes a year to settle. The roasted flavors are smooth and well integrated. This is a mega beer, that if you like to drink perfectly you'd better go to Ireland. For Beer Drunk outside of Ireland -2 from Overall Impressoin. Its just to veriable everywhere else.

What can be said about Guinness? It pours very dark with an extremely stable medium white head that does not disperse. The beer does not have much aroma, but is so smooth to drink. I love this beer.

Average as Stouts go, I am not a huge Stout fan. I feel that there is not enough complexity to satisfy my taste buds.

damirvrkic (56) - Franklin ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 Classic Irish Stout. What can you say, great creamy head, nice bitter / sweet taste of roasted barley but not too heavy in body.

Apparently I'm one of the few non-lovers of Guinness. I like a lot of dry stouts but Guiness just doesn't do it for me.

One of my favourite beers. Me and Dave drinks it all the time. Only £1.69 in Spoons! Magic.

Dark in color but with a slightly creamy taste. a good head on it, but i'm sure that's due more to the little nitrogen widget in the bottle. i'll have this on draft the next time i'm out to get a truer taste for it.
