look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

A - Regardless of variety, Gunniess is a beautiful beer. Great head, great lacing. Mild Carbonation.

S - Smell is rosted malt.

T - Fairly good, though bordering on too bitter. This is a harsh brew, unlike the smoother draught, similar to unsweeted black coffee. Once the brew begins to warm, hints of chocolate become apparent. It isn't the best tasting stout, but it definatly has a particular character that few stouts have.

M - Moderatly thick and definatly full bodied, Guinness's mouthfeel is a shining example of a true stout's consistancy.

D - Fair. While this is a good tasting beer having a great consistancy, the bitterness of the brew limits its drinkability.

In the past I despised Guinness. However, as my palatte began to expand, I've learned to enjoy it for what it is; a good tasting, widely available stout that acts as a reliable standby. It is a good beer, and one of the most well known stouts that exist today.
