On tap at the local social club.

The bartender poured it slowly--filled the glass halfway, then poured someone's lager, then came back and finished mine off. Lots of creamy, thick, beige/light brown head. Pure black beer underneath.

Tastes and smells good--not outstanding, but good. Sweet and creamy upfront, but not an articial or sugary-sweetness, just the roasted barley coming through.

Drinkability's always good on a Guinness.

Serving type: on-tap

I drank from a bottle into a chalice

Before I knew what real heavey beer was this was a good one. Now, to me it almost tastes watery compared to other stouts. It has a decent coffee taste but this is just a beer I could never get into.

It pours black with a nice white/tan head.

It smells and taste like coffee, but compared to other stouts its very weak.

Serving type: bottle

Pours from the can with the classic cascade.

Large creamy offwhite head, fades relatively fast.

smells of light roast, very mellow aroma.

There is a light upfront bitterness with malt backing it up, lots of roasty notes and a slight sour tang at the end.

feels great in the mouth, couldnt be more smooth.

An old standby that I grabbed for the holidays, easy drinking and well rounded.

Serving type: can

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Black, dark , roasted appearance, thick almost coffee
Smell - not alot of smell from this can...lost somehow in the translation
Taste - Reminds me of a Guiness but stripped of all the good flavors
Mouthfeel - Weak and watery...not hte thick feel of the pub style draft

Drinkability - Definitely not the original...I could swallow this down if there was no Guiness in sight but would rather hit the tap.

Serving type: nitro-can
