bhensonb (15963) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle. Opened with a bubbly squeal of widget. Poured creamy brown/tan. Fine beige head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. It is a bit watery. The flavor is light roasted malt. There is a bit of bitter. The Bud of Ireland. Damn, but I wish the Bud of America was 1% this flavorful. Good to drink. Something of a session stout!

imdownthepub (15514) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2003
Keg, Pasteurised. We all know what it loos like but the flavour has definitely become thinner over the years. There is still the dry, coffee like almost powdery mouthfeel. There is a treacely finish, but ultimate experience, I think not!

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 17, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Re-rate 3/19/09: Draught at Israel Beer Breweries (Guinness importers) in Ashkelon. Black with a creamy light-brown head. Roasty aroma with a bit of coffee. Sweetish flavor with coffee and milk-chocolate and some roasty bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel iz quite watery. Not bad. 6/4/6/3/12=3.1

Draught at Bleecker Tzafon. Black beer with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is quite weak and has some roastiness and notes of coffee. Flavor is some sweet malt, some roastiness and a bit of bitterness (and a slight acidic touch). Finish is rather bitter. Watery palate. Not a really bad beer, but nothing good to say about other than good looks. I don’t like it. 5/4/5/2/10=2.6

3.3
Tmoney99 (15114) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2005
BOTTLE. POURED A DARK COLOR WITH DARK LARGE HEAD. LOVE TO WATCH THE CASCADE. MEDIUM AROMA. FLAVOR WAS COMPLEX COMBINATION OF MALT, BARLEY AND SWEET FINISH. MORE FINISH AS IT WARMED.

3.4
kermis (14955) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
Draft at many places including St James Gate. Current pint at an Irish bar in th Hague. What more is there to say about Guinness? It amazes me they they have made a stout mainstream.

2.5
HenrikSoegaard (14704) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2006
Can. 4.2 ABV. Creamy off-white fully lasting head. Malty average aroma, very thin flavor, short finish. Red-brown colour. Not a good beer!!!!!!!
