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.

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.

One of my first loves. Pouring out of a bottle for the first time... ever?
Not quite impenetrably dark. Lovely head, strong lingering lace.
Subdued aromas of malt, caramel, chocolate.
Rich, layered taste. Malted barley, confidently bitter, substantial weight. Flavors leave fairly quickly, but a mild malty bitter remains minutes later.
