Format: enjoying a pint of Guinness at the club, and realised that I haven't yet done a review of it. Gasp!

Appearance: poured out jet black with a rising cream of tan head that sits around a finger and lasts for the entire session.

Aroma: not really much on the nose - just a touch of roast coffee and some malts.

Taste: definite roast coffee and chocolate again here - fairly one-dimensional, but when it sits this well it doesn't really matter. One of the best traditional macro dry stouts.

Aftertaste: a lingering bitterness from the malts, with a touch of that coffee. Perhaps a bit too coffee for me (not a fan) but that doesn't mean it isn't well made.

Mouth feel: medium in body with lower to moderate carbonation. Very creamy and smooth.

Overall: I do like Guinness, but it is a little too coffee for my taste. That doesn't mean it isn't a good beer to enjoy every now and then, and it is now a very reasonable price also at AU$53 a case of 24 x 440mL cans. All in all I'm more of a Kilkenny fan.

Damn it, I like Guinness Draught! I know it doesn't get the best rap here, but it's so damn sessionable & the nitro effect with the everlasting snow white head & pitch black beer...priceless.

Guinness on tap is the best. Poured slow in Boston or Ireland!
