Dark beer with rich capuccino head, which is easily formed. Smooth taste, something between chocolate and coffee. Short but nice aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drunk lot of times. Last time, many pints during the evening of St Patrickís Day at The Beehive, St Albans, UK. Colour is turbid dark brown to black, with nice creamy beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, biscuit, caramel, coffee and chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, caramel, roasted earth, liquorice, also a milky note. Is very difficult to describe all the flavours because the Guinnes taste is unique and everybody can recognize it. Body is medium and carbonation is low. Palate is sweet and creamy. I thought it was a wonderful stout, but then I tried other beers with the same style and I realized that it wasnít so great as I thought. Just good.

From the turtle can, on the airplane, into the plastic glass. Black, nice almond head, and excellent "Guinness" effect, and left persistent pace even on the airplane plastic cup. Aroma is coffee and chocolate with a hint of cola. Taste is the same. Palate is a bit watery, as I remembered, carbonation very subdued. Not a bad beer, really, especially now that Iíve had a few to compare it with.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep brown to black with a beautiful beige head. Nose is roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Taste is coffee, chocolate, and lots of malt. Very creamy and smooth. This is the original; if Iím judging on style itís a perfect score. But to my personal preference, itís just fine. Itís nice, light, and easily drinkable. Iíd happily drink it all night long and, while, not being? blown away, wouldnít be too upset.

Dark, dark brown almost black with a tan 1.5 finger head. Head retention is superb and watching the nitro pour in action is always cool. Thin creamy body with low carbonation.

Bardzo kremowe i nisko wysycone. Prezentuje się pięknie. W zapachu słody. Smak: smukły i lekki z wyczuwalną lekką kawą.

The beer looks perfect (if properly poured). Excellent beige head, and it tastes very nice. One of my favourite light beers - definitely worth the price.
