I've set Guinness as my default beer a few years ago and I still can't go wrong with it.

I only drink this when doing Irish Car Bombs. Although still a solid brew. Recommended if you like dark stouts.

Guinness is simply the best. Whether for breakfast lunch or dinner you can not go wrong with a Guinness or 5.

An amazing beer/stout, those who say it is average, are either trying it out of a can or a bar that do not take care/pride in their draught lines. Ireland is the best place to drink Guinness, I am irish and have lived all over the world. Nothing compares to my local pint in ireland where the barkeep takes pride and the black stuff is constantly flowing

This has always been my can't go wrong beer. It is a nice shuttle dark beer with the right thickness and darkness for my taste.

From a draught can. Pours a dark black with the typical Guinness cascade from milk chocolate to black and cream tan head. Aroma is faint, but has slight roast. Taste is bittersweet chocolate and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth. Overall, not a bad beer for being a mass produced, approachable stout.

Although I'm more of an IPA guy, this will remain one of my favorites. Best when enjoyed fresh in Dublin!

Great beer! It took me a long time to build up the courage to try this beer. Tried it for the first time at Bible study a few weeks ago. My faith has indeed been restored!
