Oh I love me some Guinness. With age I’ve come to appreciate the stout beers especially Guinness. I have yet to try the European, UK and Ireland versions but all in due time. Pours a deep, rich thick super dark brown with about a full inch and a half head. Head was light brown and slowly dissipated. Flavor of roasty, maybe woody, slightly bitter brew. We’ll see if it’s true form is better.

I kind of liked it but it wasn't one I would tend to drink but I'm not sure why. A pretty well-balanced beer leaning towards the hoppy side. Very mild carbonation. It has a long, slightly bitter finish. very late in the finish I get a slightly metallic taste that lingers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ciemne, niejprzejrzyste. Bardzo ładny lacing. Lekko kwaskowe, delikatna goryczka w posmaku. Zapach palonych ziaren kawy, trochę pietruszki? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Go to daily beer. Always like it. Easy to get at grocery stores in Metro D.C. Far superior to the draft beer, which is rather flat and not very complex. Extra stout Foreign is better too. Whole Foods has it.

Just a no nonsense stouter version of the basic Guinness. I wouldn't go crazy trying to find it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A thicker Guinness. Slightly sweeter up front and more roast in the aftertaste. An upgrade over the original; I'm looking for this beer on draft, preferably nitro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque dark with thick frothy head, that refuses to dissipate. Roasted coffee/malt aroma and taste, with dark chocolaty aftertaste. A lot more flavor than the draught, but also much heavier. A definite classic, that has been my go to beer for many years.

Bottle. Dark, malty, cacao and bittersweet chocolate. Slightly bitter taste and leafy.
