Poured from a 12oz bottle purchased in a sixer at a local liquor store for about $7.
Black color with a chunky beige head - not towering like from the tap but respectible and appetizing-looking.
Smells decent - quite bitter with some roasty malt aroma. Nothing out of the ordinary for the style.
First sip had me skeptical. The bitterness was the first thing to hit my tongue, followed by a twang of alcohol. A few sips in, however, and as the beer warmed a bit, the beer seemed to gain balance. This one got better and better as it went and by the end of the glass I was satisfied and even impressed.
This is far superior to the Guinness Draught, and obviously a classic within its style.

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.
