Pours the same as every other Guinness. It’s cool how they’re 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. Patrick’s Day.

Backlog, ocena wystawiona na podstawie wspomnień z degustacji oraz przepisana z profilu na Untappd. Jeden ze słabszych guinessów, które piłem.

Pretty tasty for a mass produced brew. A tad expensive for an everyday drinker, but i enjoy it. When the temps outside start to dip, this one is a good go-to beer. Recommended

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 I like the foam on top it adds a unique touch but I do not enjoy the bitter aftertaste

[Puszka] Wygląd: Czarne nieprzejrzyste, bardzo trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa piana Aromat: Nikły, nieco kawowy. Smak: Mało intensywny, nieco przypieczonych słodów, lekka kwaśność, wspaniale kremowe, idealnie pijalne.

Ciemnorubinowe, piana mistrzostwo świata, efekt azotowy również (moje 1wsze piwo z azotem). W aromacie czekolada i kwaśna suszona śliwka i taki sztuczno-drożdżowo-chlebowy aromat (może azot?). W smaku podobnie jak z aromacie, kawowy finish. Piwo dość wytrawne. Odczucie w ustach kremowe ale piwo bardziej w stronę wodnistą. Całkiem, całkiem aczkolwiek lepiej wygląda niż smakuje :P

Can atva social club oitside Farnham. Drank it very quickly and it didn't leave much of an impression. Looks good. Creammy bitter with sme sweetness. Much lighter and thinner than I expected. OK macro beer.

Bevuta il 06/10/2017 @BirreriaDiGrignasco in Grignasco (NO). Schiuma cremosa color cappuccino, molto persistente. In bocca domina il tostato. Quasi non carbonata. Poco corpo. Texture acquosa. Retrogusto amaro e secco. A livello di beverinitá è ok, ma non regala alcun sapore particolare. Una semplice dry stout commerciale.

On tap at Guinness brewery, Dublin. Pours a deep ink black with a solid beige head. Aroma: Roasted malt, bitter cocoa, coffee notes. Pleasant aroma but not complex. Taste: Roasted malt dominates. Mild bitter cocoa and brown sugar flavours. Smooth texture. Medium bodied. Mild bitterness. Good solid stout. Much better fresh from the brewery than anywhere else. Quality does vary widely from country to country and venue to venue.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 My first Guinness. Had it out of the bottle and didn't seem to be as full bodied as people make Guinness out to be. I think this would take away from the flavor. It's got toasty flavors, but it's a bit less flavorful than I've come to expect with Stouts.
