Situation: unwinding for a long-overdue Guinness review...
Glassware: Guinness tulip...
Appearance: A show--an instant 5. the off-white layer of milky, creamy head leveling over cascading brown, mixing with a blackened base presents like no other beer I know...
Aroma: lactic, milky tones that hint at chocolate, and dough; for an ale, incredibly light scents...
Palate: medium-bodied, soft and smooth to the point of mellow gold--impossible NOT to quaff at a rapid pace, and that is no punishment...
Taste: although not as complex as some other Irish stouts I have had, the sweet lactic flavor is clean and lip-smacking--in addition, consistent too.
Overall: having had the draught poured "correctly" in England and Scotland, I can honestly the difference in the widgeted bottle isn't palpable to me--the reliability and drinkability make this a great partner to any number of activities. Recognizable branding and availability make this also a winner for convenience's sake.

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.
