From tap at irish pub in Nördlingen in Germany. Smells like Caramel Coffee. Perfectly balanced taste. Drinks like water. Carbonation makes for a very creamy amazing mouthfeel. From tap is significantly better than Guinness from a can.

I mean, it’s a Guinness. Best beer ever for cooking. 20 of these and a glass of milk and you have your RDA for all essential calories and nutrients. Irish car bomb anyone? Totally amazing.

I've had Guinness before but this is the first rst time trying a Draught. I poured this one into a beer mug. Produced a good head, the feel of it was smooth, and the taste was pretty darn good. I was pleasantly surprised. Overall, a good beer and one I will come back to.

The legendary Guinness Draught; What a fantastic debut beer review.

Third beer of the day; one Belgian white and a Guinness. I will never review a beer if it's the first of the day.

Cool 16oz glass. I cracked the burnished gold tab and let the nitrogen/co2 slowly hiss out.

After pouring, there's a bit of fireworks in the glass, let them play it up. 100% fantastic head, moist as the freshest bread. Surface tension keeps it from bubbling over the glass edge, even as it rises above. The perfect pour every time.

Time for the first sip; Not my first rodeo with Guinness, I dive right in. Caramelly toast waft as this signature black beer cuts through the soft foamy head. Great mouthfeel as the cold rush of stout emulsifies with the head. Sweet chocolate and bitter malt on the tongue. As smooth as nice whisky. The first sip of Guinness is one of the best, 5/5.

Midway there's a bit of Irish bog to traverse, as while this isn't the thickest stout it's vast and muddy nonetheless. But the nice chocolaty bread really shines through even as it warms.

The last few sips are a bitter-tooth brew eater's paradise. As I finish the beer, residual head and newly sloshed foam splatter the glass artfully. The taste of malt on the last sip radiates out to fill your nose up playfully. Even with its mild 4.2% ABV, the bitterness gives me a bit of a woozy headspace.

As I grab another Guinness to fill my empty glass, I note the almost cakelike foam at the bottom. Scrumptiously bitter, yet may negate that aforementioned surface tension. Gotta get a fresh glass!
