Pours the same as every other Guinness. Itís cool how theyíre able to replicate the perfect pour every time with the use of the widget. Dark brown to black with a beautiful cascade of bubbles. A very neat looking beer to watch in the glass. Aroma is a bit subdued with hints of milk and oats. Taste is light and feel is a bit creamy. Overall, knowing it is made in Ireland makes it the perfect beer to drink on St. Patrickís Day.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2017 Czekalem na to dlugo..oczywiscie w przeciagu kilkunastu lat wypilem hektolitry Guinessa,lecz z ocena go zawsze czekalem by przyjechac do Mekki. A wiec,pint w Storehouse Guinness w Dublinie. Czarny jak smola o pieknej kremowej pianie ,ktora utrzymuje sie pieknie w szkle. Lekko kawowy aromat z ladunkiem palonych slodow. W smaku lagodne o niemalze jedwabistej konsystencji. Palone slody kawa lekka czekolada,lukrecja,delikatne owocowe tony w tle.wiem ze ludzie narzekaja:ze wodniste,ze bez smaku,ze nie ma nuty ze goryczka ze kwasne...powiem tak:moze,gdzies indziej na swiecie lecz nie tu i nie to.coz moge powiedziec..perfekcyjny pint

Paloność, niezbyt mocna kawa, nieco zboża. Wytrawne, gładkie, nisko wysycone. Przyjemny, lekki stout.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2017 440mL nitro can (brewed in Dublin) into an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Dark brown with a thick everlasting nitro tan head. Unbeatable thick lacing. Aroma: Roast malt, cream, liquorice, coffee. Taste: Follows the nose, plus has acidity and very light bitterness. Mouthfeel: Creamy and velvety but no carbonation. Develops into a watery body by halfway (3/5). Overall: Enjoyable to sip, but not a top tier beer. Thankfully the mainstream leader of stouts is not terrible, unlike Bud/Corona/Stella/VB to lagers.

Smoliście czarne, piana dzięki kulce z azotem bardzo gęsta, wręcz kremowa. W zapachu mocny aromat orzechůw z delikatną nutą karmelu. W smaku niestety trochę puste. Brak goryczki, lekki posmak tego gazu z kulki...

440 ml draught. Black colour with small creamy head. Roasted malt, coffee, smoke. Malty, with sour hint. Flat carbonation, oily and thin texture. Could be a bit more fizzy, but it is still good. Better than from bottle.

The thing is with Guinness, itís a bit like ale. It depends on where you get it. In my experience, going to an actual Irish Bar itís usually better in taste than a Wetherspoons or an English bar. If you are going to compare it to anything it has a bit of a coffee taste but it has its own flavour really. I used to drink Guinness in any pub but since having it in Irish pubs I donít dare drink it in normal pubs. Guinness really is a drink you have to be in the mood for, unless youíre one of these people who swears by it.

Spory zawůd. W zapachu zupełnie nijakie w smaku delikatnie żygowinkowo-kwaśne. Raczej nie polecam. EDIT: Mam problem z dopiciem całej puszki, obniżam ocenę. Naprawdę żygowinowo męczące

FDP2017. Plytki aromat wrecz znikomy. Smak jakby rozwodniony palone nuty. Goryczka palonosci. Ale malo wyrazne.
