Pennsylvania

4.35/5  rDev +25%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured by a certified Guinness pourer at Dugan's Irish Pub in Luzerne, PA. Incredible thick white head that never goes away and leaves thick lacing all over the glass. And the trademark pitch black body that fades in under the head is always a welcome sight.

S - Never picked up much of a scent on Guinness, other than some darkness. Yes, I can smell darkness. Just a deep bready musk, nothing too strong or weak, just a presence.

T - Smooth and flavorful, good ol' Guinness never disappoints. Dark chocolate, some pumpernickel, milk chocolate, a little bit of roasted marshmallow, some fudge maybe, lots of dark hops, and the spirit of the Irish of course.

M - Smooth yet slippery. It's very easy to drink because it's smooth, but I would like a little more character there.

O - For as long as I could remember, Guinness Draught has been one of my favorite beers, and finally getting to have it on tap poured in the CORRECT manner is just incredible, it just tastes so much different than the canned Guinness or the bottled Guinness or Guinness just sloshed into a glass by an inexperienced beer pourer. Long live Guinness!
