The legendary Guinness Draught


The look of it: Amazing, dark roasted color with about 1 finger of head that is very present


The smell of it: Roasted malt with a touch of caramel coffee


The taste of it; A small touch of coffee,a bot of caramel also not very carbonated but very creamy, the presence of the alcohol is not very there. Feels refreshing .


So overall would I recommend it? For sure, this is a well made beer, definitely a go to beer but personally it won t be mine.

Very good. Cannot have a lot of it because of the thickness but I really enjoy the caramel after taste.

I like the smell and look of this beer. It's just a little watery for my taste.

I've set Guinness as my default beer a few years ago and I still can't go wrong with it.

I only drink this when doing Irish Car Bombs. Although still a solid brew. Recommended if you like dark stouts.

Smooth and creamy feel and of course a great look with its big tan head. Taste and aroma are simple. Not too flavorful but overall not a bad brew for a macro.

Guinness is simply the best. Whether for breakfast lunch or dinner you can not go wrong with a Guinness or 6.

An amazing beer/stout, those who say it is average, are either trying it out of a can or a bar that do not take care/pride in their draught lines. Ireland is the best place to drink Guinness, I am irish and have lived all over the world. Nothing compares to my local pint in ireland where the barkeep takes pride and the black stuff is constantly flowing

I still love this beer! Even though it's like the Bud Light of stouts, this is the beer that got me to try other non-BMC beers, and for that I am forever grateful.

I don't understand why people make a big fuss about this beer. Super boring, and has the most rancid shitty after taste. Probably one of the worst stouts out there. The abv is super low too which is not typical of a good stout. This is the Natty Ice of stouts.

This has always been my can't go wrong beer. It is a nice shuttle dark beer with the right thickness and darkness for my taste.
