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!

First off, I'll say that I really like Guinness. That out of the way, I prefer to have the beer on-tap if I can get it, but I live in a smaller town so I have to travel about 35 minutes if I want to get it at a pub in Fort Worth, TX. I think it's a gorgeous beer when it is first served, and the smell and taste is just superb in my opinion.
Last time I went to the aforementioned pub I brought a friend along, and she also ordered a Guinness. I figured she knew what she was doing. Well, that ended with me having two beers, and her having a hard cider.

3.2/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.
