2.56/5 rDev -26.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Poured from bottle into a nonic glass.
Appearance: Guinness obviously has a very iconic look. It pours thick and black with a dense, one finger tan head.
Scent: Pretty boring. Malty with a little bit of a roasted scent, but not much.
Taste: Bland. There really isn't anything to taste until you swallow, and then you get a roasted coffee flavor on the back of your tongue.
Mouthfeel: Treads a fine line between thick and watery. Kind of interesting, but not necessarily in a good way.
Overall: After a lifetime of hearing great things about Guinness, I was very disappointed with my experience. It's really just a great looking beer, but fails to be interesting in any of the other categories. It's an extremely bland and flavorless beer. Do not recommend.

Pours darn near opaque with only a slight hue around the edge when held to the light. The head is mocha colored creamy foam and it lasts and leaves grogeous lace. This beer looks amazing. The nose a mild bit of roasted malt, it promises something grainy and maybe a bit bitter. A light sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is where this one loses me. Weak flavors thin body. Watery and thin although soft and creamy. Weak coffee, roast that had potential but fizzled in it's lackluster approach to the palate. There's not really much alcohol in this one so it' wasn't
planning on being strong. And it's not. Earthy, hints of char light smooth and finishes slightly with a faint bitterness from roast . It had a slight imperfection in the mouthfeel as it was actually grainy at the back palate. An actual sensation of something faintly gritty.
