look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance- Dark brown to black appearance when poured into a glass.

Smell- Light hints of chocolate or coffee much like any stout.

Taste- Very bold flavor that is not too overpowering.

Mouthfeel- It is very smooth and very drinkable.

Love this beer. It is the standard for all stouts,imports, Irish beers and any type of beer for that matter. This is a very good beer for upcoming events such as Saint Patricks Day!

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

16 oz. can poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Say what you will about Guinness, but it looks pretty damn awesome with the cascading nitro bubbles and the exceptionally creamy off-white head that lasts...forever? Color is a very dark ruby brown. Not quite black.

Smell: Aaaand, it's downhill from there. Not much going on. Bready. Some slight hints of roast and caramel, but mostly just bready. Really not a bad smell by any means, there just isn't much of it.

Taste: The sour mash is apparent, and the only thing about the flavor of this beer that attempts to stand out. A lot of bready malt again, with a slight sour twang. What isn't apparent is roasted malt, or chocolate, or coffee, or any of the flavors that I've grown to expect in a stout. Okay, okay, there's SOME roasted malt. But it's remarkably mild. At the end of the day though, this is not a bad tasting beer at all. And unlike other macro beers, it doesn't taste like water. It's flavor won't impress you by any means, but it isn't water.

Mouthfeel: Thin and slippery. The nitro makes it extremely smooth. But it's quite thin. Far too thin.

Overall: This is essentially the only macro beer I ever consider buying. Unfortunately that's about the biggest compliment I can give it....In all fairness though, it's not a bad beer when all's said and done, and on certain occasions I just can't help drinking a few (cough, St. Patrick's Day).

Serving type: can
