Very dark. Pitch black; even when illuminated. The head is thick, tan and creamy. Lace is all over the glass. This is what you want a stout to look like. You can watch the head grow as the bubbles make their way both up AND down the glass. You really cannot beat the presentation of a Guinness.
Very light roast in the nose. It actually smells sweet with a light mix of charcoal and roasted malt.
A good medium body. The flavors are roasted and burnt. There is some nondescript sweetness in the middle, followed by more burnt flavors, grain, some bitter hops, and a dry finish. It's a pretty easy beer to drink but I have some other stouts in the fridge and will follow this with one of those.

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.

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.
