Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a British pint glass.
Oily black with a thin pale tan head that leaves scattered lacing.
Aroma: a faintly charred aroma which must be the roasted barley and a mild earthy hoppiness.
Mouthfeel: soft but solid.
Taste: coffee, licorice, faint smokiness with a dry finish and a slightly bitter sting on the fade.
Notes: good stuff. Does not have any Chocolate notes like a lot of Porters. The overriding qualities of Guinness Extra Stout are Dry, smoky and slightly bitter. I bet this really grows on someone.
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
