So, after tasting many other stouts, I went to the original, the one that is talked about as the stout of stouts.
The beer poured up dark with a nice looking head, full of promise. After admiring the beer, I took a sip, and was immediately disappointed. Maybe it was because I was thinking it would be like the other stouts I've tried, but, it just tasted weak and watered down. Not quite what I was expecting. Unfortunately, this beer was a disappointment.

Bottle poured into a pint.
This beer pours a typical near black. The head is frothy and off white and lingered for a while. The smell is...well, a metallic slightly burnt and sweet creaminess. The taste is so very mild on this beer. It is watery and mildly, mildly, and very mildly bitter. Their is some metallic twang and an overall taste very similar to an American adjunct lager. The mouthfeel is watery and very smooth. Overall this beer is pretty much average. It is easily quaffable and very thin on taste. I think its so popular because:
1) It has a lot of marketing and a very long and old tradition.
2) It is so light on the palate than an everyday macro drinker can enjoy it and feel and look cool (or at least that's what I feel about it, people love appearance you know.)
This beer isn't very good. I never buy it and I am glad my brother enjoys these buys I never buy because I can steal a bottle and give it a review. It is nice and light and refreshing though.

the orignal and most famous for a reason. this is the original dry irish stout. pours nearly black, thick, frothy mocha head. smells roasty and smooth, ever slight milk chocolate characteristics. tastes great, creamy and a little bitter at the finish. full bodied but so smooth and low alcohol that you can easily drink it all day. not the best stout in the world, not even close, but when you are at a pub and the choices are bud, bud light, heineken, and guinness, its the only choice. also nice on a hangover

I was expecting a good stout as I've drunken in England but this Guinness was very disappointing. The nitro-can creates a nice creamy head, but once I forgot the appearance nothing is worth buying this stout. Just one word: Watery! Not tasty at all, just pass your way if you're looking for a good malty stout!
