From the bottle with the widget inside. It says to drink it from the bottle but I resist. Give this one a pour and watch the show. Not that it is ever as good as on tap but they've set it up so a pour from a nitro can or bottle still gets you the bubble vortex in your glass. As you watch the golden cascade, the pillow of foam floats on top. You may not be able to walk on it but you can draw a clover. Oh, yeah, this beer is dark. Very dark.

The smell out of this is very low. It is like a smell on a breeze and you can pick up the smells of chocolate, sorghum, molasses, or some other mellow sweetness off in the distance.

This Irish fellow is thick but mellow in your mouth. It coats it just a bit with a creamy feel. Along with those other flavors in the smell, it also seems to have an essence of raisin. Very smooth, mellow, and not bitter at all.

I'm not a Guinness disciple but I do enjoy it at times. However, one is usually enough for me and it is hard for me to have another one because of how much it fills me up.

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).
