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.

This is a nice stout beer if that is what you are looking for. nice foam on top. its is malty but not to malty for my taste. my dad drinks Guinness all the time I tried it recently and loved it. I would recommend trying the beer its worth a shot. if your are not a heavy drinker this could work for you 1 taste and you will enjoy it.

Guiness on tap can be pretty spectacular. That glorious head of foam! The magnificent froth! That dark, luscious color. Very, very creamy when you start to sip. Tastes smooth, almost buttery, lightly roasted, no discernible hops or carbonation to me. This is a classic beer that is surprisingly light, despite its dark color and creaminess. Tastes great in an Irish pub (or, almost anywhere).
