Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Appearance: Pitch black body. Sand colored head. Sticky lacing lingers around for a bit but dissipates throughout.
Smell: Floral notes up front, toasted barley and grains follow.
Taste: The hops stand out. A slightly warm body stands behind a good hit of hops. The barley and grains kick in and mellow it out pretty quick. The finish is semi-sweet and dry.
Overall: Not a bad Irish Dry Stout by any means. This has a rather light body, making this a great session stout. My only complaint is that it is a bit too sour up front for my liking. This is certainly a classic and is worth enjoying every once in awhile.
Serving type: bottle

Can poured into a pint glass
I love the cascade of taupe bubbles as they rise to the top of of this dark brown classic stout. A beautiful, thick creamy taupe lid caps the beer. Lacings on the side curtain the beer glass.
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and sweetness
Smooth, sweet roasted malt taste. No bitter aftertaste but the linger of the malt.
The lack of carbonation is the surprise of this stout and makes it quite drinkable, glass,after glass.
What's there not to like about a well poured glass of Guinness Stout? Oh my goodness, my Guinness!

Not normally into higher end beers but this one is perfect. Head is thick and creamy. Goes down SMOOTH. It's served closer to room temp and tastes better that way. I've bought a 6 pack before but cold out of the fridge just isn't anywhere nearly as good. Best by far of all stouts I've ever had.
Serving type: on-tap
