Guinness is a staple, its been around for hundreds of years, everyone needs to try it.
The proper dispensing of Guinness is a rather lengthy process compared to most other beers you get from a tap. Once you get it and have it in front of you, you have a good looking beer, and it seems evident why its been brewed for so long. Nice creamy head goes well with the dark body. That said, the smell and taste are about the same creamy, malty coffee taste. Unfortunately, something seems to be missing with Guinness, body. As dark as this beer is, its like water in my mouth. I would have appreciated more of a presence.
All in all, if you don't want Budweiser, or Coors Light, or Miller Lite, this is definitely a welcome beer.

Guiness is certainly a dark beer. I had it on tap and it turned out to be quite pleasant. Very frothy. Good carbonation levels takes a while for the head to settle. I would reccomend guiness if youre interested in dark beers. Nice clean mouth feel with little lingering flavors.

Many years ago this was my first experience with dark beer. I believed it to be then...not so much now. This stout pours a deep mahogany color with a thick off white head and lacing. The nose is an unnecessarily sweet blend of coffee and; unfortunately, adjunct malts. The mouth is very smooth and very creamy. We all know the guinness mouthfeel and wish so many other beers could achieve it. The flavor is overly sweet and seems like mass produced beer. Yet it still has all the rich flavors of roasted coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate. For a mass produced stout it is well crafted but lacks the finesse and refinement of other craft stouts.
