This is from the non-nitro bottle into a glass. First time drinking it.

A- Very dark ruby color. Has a nice 2 finger tan head that leaves lacing.

S- Roasted malts, dark chocolate, a touch of hops. Smells like dark chocolate and coffee mixed together. Yum.

T- I pick up the dark roasted malts in the front and bitterness rolls in afterward along with a black coffee taste. It tastes very watered down for some reason.

M- Very watery, thin. Some carbonation.

O- I had high hopes for this beer to be more robust, but the watery taste and mouthfeel makes it a good lawnmower beer. Don't get me wrong, it does taste good.

Years after my first Guinness experience: finally a review!
Poured from from a nitro-can into a chalice.

A - Poured dark brown, formed a layer of black, brown, and light tan head; settled to ink black body with a thin tan head that lingered the entire duration of my drinking it (around an hour)

S - Roast grains

T - Cream, light roast malts, nuts, and finishes a slightly sour hoppy note

M -Thick and creamy, like a just slightly fizzy glass of buttermilk

O - A lot of people complain that this is just a plain beer, and really light, and it's all just marketing. In a way, that's true. Guinness draught isn't a heavy, complex porter that will change your perspective of beer. But it's a good simple alternative to the other basic lagers or porters you might order with dinner, or at a cafe. It's light enough to not dominate a meal or fill you up, but it's creamy and tasty enough to be an enjoyable alternative when you want something a bit different. Either way, I'm still quite fond of this beer.
