look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
poured into my big ol glass.
the appearance looks absolutely gorgeous, a nice change from the orangey cooper IPAs and pale ales ive been having, looks deep black with a ruby hue if held up to the light. amazing thick and creamy head that went from about 2 fingers immediately after pouring to about a quarter inch head that lasted the entire beer. gorgeous looking beer.
not a lot of smell, but i do get hints of roasted malts and a "burnt" smell, like ground coffee beans. its faint, but its there.
the taste is basically the same as the smell-not alot there but its pleasant when you do get a taste. obviously not very hoppy-especially since i do like IPAs and that sort of thing. it tastes like burnt and roasted malts, which is kind of pleasant.
mouthfeel-what a let down. i was expecting it to be more creamy and thicker, but it ended up being thin and watery, hopefully guinness on tap is more creamier and thick. however, it is smooth-its not fizzy or anything. if only it were smooth AND creamy!
overall, its a good beer for a mass produced stout. i think this beer is overhyped, but its still good and drinkable; its underwhelming. it looks good but the taste just cant match the looks. its slightly above average for me-but i would drink it again, especially on tap at the irish pub near my house.
oh well. its still miles ahead of that yellow fizzy stuff.

Before we begin I'd like to note that this review is based on Guinness draft from one of those cheesy black bottles. I've had better experiences with cans and draft, but I think the container may have thrown me off. Also, it says "enjoy straight from the bottle" but that seems kind of idiotic to me. I guess it's intended for the St. Patrick's day swill gang in this format.
Reviewed the same day as extra stout, and liked this one better, for what it's worth.
Looks black, (dark dark red in the light) not much of a head. Again I blame the bottle and lack of widget. (Then why did you buy it, review the beer you douche.)
Smells malty and chocolatey and a little smokey.
Tastes like it smells, but with a speck of stale cereal. It's more watery than expected too, especially considering the creamy mouthfeel. It's occurring to me that this is kind of a weird beer now that I'm writing this out.
Overall, not my everyday drink. Will try more from the style.

Got a can from the pool bar at the Royal Pacific Resort, Orlando. The place is great (gotta love the fast pass at Universal Studios), but man, this beer sucks. I like Guiness stout, but this is nothing like that. Looks good enough, but there's hardly any aroma and it tastes like flat, bland water. I mean, why bother? If you like tasting absolutely nothing in a beer, then go for it. Otherwise, pass on this swill.
