The classic Irish stout. This is what I drink when I don't want to think about what I'm drinking. Pours a thick, creamy head. Smells like dark malt. Tastes like malt and a hint of coffee. Easy on the hops. The mouthfeel is near perfect.

A fantastic beer, great look, smell and taste. I do like the draught but much prefer the extra stout. Great winter beer. And a winner and pure classic. If you like bitter beers with actual flavor then this is for you. Can't go wrong with guinness in my opinion.

I had this from the bottle into a chilled glass. As a coffee lover, I am naturally drawn to dark, roasty, drinks. And Guiness carries all those qualities. Out of the bottle, It pours a silky black with a thin, dark, tan head with lightly present lace. Smells and tastes of toasted bread, coffee and chocolate. Little to no hops present in the nose or mouth. The complex flavour and rich body is what makes this beer superb. If you fancy the bold irish dry stouts. Pairs great with foods such as bratwurst or french oniom soup and any baked good involving chocolate or caramel.
