Not as good as Foreign, but always a good dependable staple. I'm glad pretty much everyone has this on tap in my area. Roasted malt, subtle chocolate, licorice, and a nice balanced bitter finish. Can drink this all night without any real 'repercussions'. Just make sure that its fresh when on-tap. Non-fresh Guinness is not pleasant when it returns the next morning. One of the best looking beers out there.

A- Poured into a pint glass. Pitch black with a huge tan head with amazing retention. Leaves lacing down the entire glass.

S- Pretty weak, with roasted malts (mostly coffee) and not much else.

T- Much better. Nice, bitter dark malt flavors, with coffee, chocolate and roasted acidity. A little bit of hoppiness comes in during the long, dry, bitter finish. I love the finish of Guiness!

M- Big full body with moderate carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

O- The original Irish dry stout, and still one of the best in my book.
