Poured from bottle into a nonic glass.

Appearance: Guinness obviously has a very iconic look. It pours thick and black with a dense, one finger tan head.

Scent: Pretty boring. Malty with a little bit of a roasted scent, but not much.

Taste: Bland. There really isn't anything to taste until you swallow, and then you get a roasted coffee flavor on the back of your tongue.

Mouthfeel: Treads a fine line between thick and watery. Kind of interesting, but not necessarily in a good way.

Overall: After a lifetime of hearing great things about Guinness, I was very disappointed with my experience. It's really just a great looking beer, but fails to be interesting in any of the other categories. It's an extremely bland and flavorless beer. Do not recommend.

had this as one of my last beers on the NCL Breakaway during our last cruise excursion.
A nice foaming cascading head deep black with a thinner body.
Aroma was quite lean being it on nitro. Taste was also pretty lean. It was malty with a slight roasted taste.
Drinks smooth and creamy.
I generally drink this as a go to beer if I can't find any quality craft beer be it where I happen to be.
