Pours dark brown with a nice khaki head that lingers throughout. Smells like creamy chocolate and tobacco. Tastes like bananas, coffee, chocalate, and a nice maduro cigar. Feels creamy and smooth but not to the same levels as regular Guiness. Overall a really nice stout that tastes a little more like a porter than others.

Ah, good old Guinness. Ubiquitous stout that's extremely drinkable at about any temperature and often the only stout available in restaurant chains and sports bars where domestic pilsners reign supreme.

I haven't had Guinness in years, but I remember loving it in my youth. I decided to go back to it and rate it, since I haven't gotten around to trying it again until now. It's slightly lighter than I remember, my tactile memories telling me that drinking this is the past was like consuming liquid breakfast. The dark flavor and creamy head I still remembered well, and I definitely like it. This is a really good stout, and there's a reason why its popularity persists to this day. I will try to drink this again in the near future, and maybe then I'll add to this review.
