3.19/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Well....I've enjoyed Guinness for the last 15 years...it's about time I write a review about it. Poured from a nitro-can (straight out of the refrigerator) into a room temperature glass...

Appearance - The Guinness nitro-can pour is always a thing of beauty as far as I am concerned...the swirl that occurs as the beer settles is fun to watch and the two-finger white/tan, creamy head always wets my appetite. Dark, opaque brown...not as black as some irish dry stouts.

Smell - Chrome, almost rust-like; difficult for me to articulate this smell; nothing to write home about...

Taste - Dry, almost metal-like...not really sure how to put this in words...it tastes like....well....Guinness (sorry!). Not very complex...pretty bland actually...

Mouthfeel - While I used to enjoy the mouthfeel tremendously, I am now savvy enough (tongue-in-cheek) to know that the mouthfeel is actually very watery compared with many quality irish dry stouts...oh well, I still enjoy it!

Overall - Though I know that there are probably dozens of stouts better than this Irish Dry Stout, I still really enjoy a Guinness....it's an oldy, but goody...

Serving type: nitro-can
