pitch black with good head but not as creamy as in the can, more robust than the cans too, it’s just richer.
Can’t drink too many of these, they fill ya up, but taste better than about any other beers at the grocery store. Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2002

roasted hazelnutty aroma, thickest mouthfeel of any beer in the world, a bitter but pleasant balance of roasted malt and hops, overall a charming beer.
Mainly a relaxation beer, I prefer the draught however.
You can’t go wrong with Guinness but the flavor seems to be getting weaker as the years go by. ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2002
Nothing else quite like this extra stout. Bitter and smokey. Roasted and charcoal flavors penetrate this brew. I really like this stout. Others don’t like it at all. sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2004 The beer equivalent of a slimfast. Drink one instead of eating a meal, and you could maybe lose some weight. Very dark, dry, and chocolate/coffee-like. Excellent Khaki-coloured head, Bitter in a very good way. Drink it after something less sweet but pretty toasty (like New Belgium's Fat Tire), and it has a very fruity flavor, not unlike Red Stripe. Try it if you don't beleive me.

Much more bitter than their draught style. This beer had a weird sweet aroma/flavor that I just couldn’t get used to. I think it might have been an alcohol taste, but there’s not that much alcohol in it. Black as could be with a nice thick tan head. TheGreatKen (76) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Lack of head. This stout is a filler. hattrick6899 (16) - USA - AUG 31, 2002
Hummm, Guinness is best had in a pint glass at a pub in Dublin. I like this stuff though, beats any american brew hands down Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2002
Draft is the only way to have this brew. FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Hints of chocolate, black coffee, burnt toast. Nice and full, always a readily available favorite.
