3.0 A: Pours a dark brown. Looking at this beer makes you think that perhaps it will be good.
2.0 S: Somewhat malty, not much of anything really.
1.0 T: Tastes of bitter water.
2.0 M: Creaminess is nice, but that fact that even the cream is tastless makes its creaminess an even greater liability.
1.0 D: Drinkable in the same sense that Keystone is drinkable.
This is not the worst beer ever, but it certainly is the most overrated. If you disagree with me then you are insane. I am not trying to troll, but the fact that I am relatively new to the world of fine beers and this one was easy to point out as terrible and tasteless, I should be allowed to make such a caustic statement.

This beer is a really dark and heavy beer. At least it was that way for myself. I enjoyed this beer, but it is also one of those beers that I have to be in the mood for at the same time. The aroma was a good aroma. Their is a lot of head with this beer. Wich I do not mind that much. But for a dark beer it was not that bad.

Served on draft at 43 degrees F (6 degrees C), using 35PSI of beer gas mix (75% nitrogen, 25% CO2), through stout faucet with restrictor plate.
Appearance (4.5/5): Initial pour generates a very active cascade of bubbles which fall downward along perimeter of the glass. As the cascade of bubbles completes, a very dense head of small nitro bubbles form a long lasting cream colored head. Body extremely dark, with no light transmittance through the glass.
Smell (3.5/5): Sweet malt and roasted aromas dominate. Pleasant, but not overwhelming.
Taste (4/5): Initial taste is bitterness on tip of tongue. Bitterness subsides as beer moves to back of mouth, where a strong but balanced roasted flavor prevails. Earthy aftertaste yields to delicate bitter flavor.
Mouthfeel (3.5/5): Guiness’ use of beergas makes for a unique experience for both head and mouthfeel. On first sip, the upper lip pushes through the dense cream head to discover a velvety mouthfeel. Carbonation levels are low, making this a very session able brew.
Overall (3.9/5): Captivating cascade of bubbles, delicious flavor, luscious mouthfeel.
