Guinness... the classic fall back, or at least it used to be. Drinking this from the bottle as instructed, I did not see anything. The bottle is dark and completely covered by a label, preventing me from seeing the liquid inside. I can only imagine that this beer is dark with a creamy tan head. Also, being from the bottle, there's very little scent that comes through, but what makes it out is very slightly nutty/coffee/roasted.
Taste, something I can easily measure on this one, was similar to the scent. It was weak, but there were some roasted bitter nutty coffee flavors in there. I also noticed a slight metallic taste to it. I'm not sure where that came from but it's there.
It felt very watered down. This is not the Guinness I remember. I remember it being heavier, but this feels very thin and watery, although thicker than a light beer.
Though everything was pretty average, Guinness is still a very drinkable beer, and still a decent fall back.

Pours darn near opaque with only a slight hue around the edge when held to the light. The head is mocha colored creamy foam and it lasts and leaves grogeous lace. This beer looks amazing. The nose a mild bit of roasted malt, it promises something grainy and maybe a bit bitter. A light sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is where this one loses me. Weak flavors thin body. Watery and thin although soft and creamy. Weak coffee, roast that had potential but fizzled in it's lackluster approach to the palate. There's not really much alcohol in this one so it' wasn't
planning on being strong. And it's not. Earthy, hints of char light smooth and finishes slightly with a faint bitterness from roast . It had a slight imperfection in the mouthfeel as it was actually grainy at the back palate. An actual sensation of something faintly gritty.
