2.13/5 rDev -38.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2
Pour: I'll give this a 4.5/5 just because of the visual effect - it's such a beautiful thing to watch. Light brown color with an ocean-wave effect that fades into black and forms two fingers of thick, creamy head that laces the glass like crazy.
Smell: Interestingly, this beer has a rather tart fruity smell - rather out of place for this style. A little bit of malt and hops but these are rather weak.
Taste: Very bland. Some notes of roasted malt and a faint bit of hop bitterness and coffee. Finishes dry as the style would suggest.
Mouthfeel: Completely flat and watery. At least it's smooth I suppose.
Drinkability: It was hard to finish off this entire can. Just not very good at all.
Final Notes: I think Arthur Guinness would be rolling around in his grave to think how modern Guinness has been bastardized like it has. Nothing compares to real Irish Guinness I'm afraid (I've only had a bottle of Foreign Stout once, I'll never forget it).
Serving type: nitro-can

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.
