This is the absolute bestest beer ever. So pure. So divine. The absolute staple, the fundemental anchor. How does one propose to critique this beer? It's been around before my mom had teats.

If you don't know how it pours or tastes, delivers or smells, then why are you looking here for validation. You could have one. And it should be now!
Seriously, you need help if you haven't understood the practicality of a well-defined, yet overly-marketed (and understandingly so) jem.

Had any Guinness there might be on tap while on honeymoon with my wife in Ireland. It's pretty good to start with, but if you've ever had it in its home country, at the beginning of the biggest adventure in your life, with the love of your life, in a tiny pub, with a two minute pour and fresh salmon supper- you'd probably give it a five, too.

This is a very fantastic dark and hearty beer to savor. Very rich stout that flushes the mouth with a lovely heavy taste and smells almost like leather. Feels very firmly smooth and goes down really well.

Nice foreign beer to indulge in casually for sure.

Poured from a 1 PINT 6 FL. OZ. bottle into an official Guinness pint glass. Room temp.

Pours black with a dash of ruby-brown towards the bottom. Tiny bubble streams rising, initially easy to miss, 4.20 fingers of willowy tan foam, featuring many wee bubbles, a few huge, Soon the head narrows to 1 and a half fingers. Lacing present.

Smells like a Guinness, where have you been? Chocolate, malt and a hint of coffee. Scent always jogs the memory, a unique, delicious echo, centuries old ...

Creamy, smooth, understated and dry. A rather different delight from the icy pints I'm so accustomed to. Mid gulp carbonation bubbles, a real tasty sipper, without patience it's lucky charms could be overlooked.
