Guinness is one of the most unique beers I have tasted. Even with its fame around the world as the leading Dry Irish Stout the Guinness Brewery continues to make a quality product. The nitro-bottle can be drunken straight form the bottle or poured into a pint glass (or smaller, the bottle holds 11.2 fl. oz, 0.8 oz must be used for the "rocket-widget"). The famed surge settles quicker from the bottle than form a nitro-forced tap, but it still flows into a tan creamy head. The smell is a bit on the sour side due to their souring technique, and few hops are detectable; just enough to balance out malt sweetness. The taste is something I have only found in a Guinness. The sour taste on top of the dry and roasted malt characteristics make this a complex beer whose flavors compliment each other. The mouth feel is smooth but not overly heavy; a common misconception due to Guinness's deep ruby color. This beer is very drinkable and does not leave a bloated or full feeling. A true winner for the average beer drinker looking for something other than Coors, Miller, or Bud; or for homebrewers looking for a good case at the beer distributor.

Got a can from the pool bar at the Royal Pacific Resort, Orlando. The place is great (gotta love the fast pass at Universal Studios), but man, this beer sucks. I like Guiness stout, but this is nothing like that. Looks good enough, but there's hardly any aroma and it tastes like flat, bland water. I mean, why bother? If you like tasting absolutely nothing in a beer, then go for it. Otherwise, pass on this swill.

poured into pint glass
A: clear black, brown at edges; thick tan foam of tight bubbles that stays damn near forever, thank you nitro.
S: apparent from arm's length, strong roasted character, some breadiness underneath, very slight sour twang
T: not much come forward at first, then a sort of dry stale coffee roasted character, more sour than I remember (its been a while), slight hop bitterness in the finish
M: creamy foam from the head over a rather flat body
O: meh, one of the classics. better from the tap.
Serving type: nitro-can
