look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Poured out like Irish Cream. Nitrogen streams up the black brew. Perfect, thick tan head.
Smell: Coffee and malts.
Taste: Smooth. Watery.
Few beers are as beautiful as this one. Yes, it is completely overrated. It tastes like a water of sorts, has a very faint smell, has a low ABV, and costs too much. However, it's still enjoyable in the total sum of all its parts (and has a great story and history). It's amazingly drinkable and smooth. I will, of course and with little shame, get this again.
Serving type: nitro-can

A long time ago, before I really stated learning about beer, I bought the Guinnes hype. Like most people I found the first few pints unpalatable but came to like the beer after some time. Then I discovered real flavour and didn't touch Guinness again for years. A pint of Guinness looks great, smells uninteresting,, has a one dimensional burnt flavour devoid of hops and an overdeveloped nitro-head that doesn't seem to do anything other than maintain the good appearance until the point is finished. If you want to drink Guinness and have flavour, ditch this and stick to the foreign extra offering.

First off, I'll say that I really like Guinness. That out of the way, I prefer to have the beer on-tap if I can get it, but I live in a smaller town so I have to travel about 35 minutes if I want to get it at a pub in Fort Worth, TX. I think it's a gorgeous beer when it is first served, and the smell and taste is just superb in my opinion.
Last time I went to the aforementioned pub I brought a friend along, and she also ordered a Guinness. I figured she knew what she was doing. Well, that ended with me having two beers, and her having a hard cider.
Serving type: on-tap
