Have had on draft hundreds of times, in a pint glass.

L---Pitch black. Thick head that has perfect retention and leaves lovely lacing. A properly poured Guinness is what a beer should look like.

S---Roasted malts come out as coffee & chocolate.

T---Follows the nose, but taste is stronger than the smell.

F---Creamy & rich. Coats the mouth and lingers.

O---As good as it gets and it's a mass produced one as well. Why can't other big brewers be like them?

The best mass produced beer ever made. Sublime. Well played Ireland!

Creamy, complex, thirst quenching, a delight at any time of year.

It is my favourite beer by a long way! I couldn’t do without it, sheer perfection.

Very dark with a beautiful tan fluffy wow fading head - they have mastered the pour! Smooth silky and dark, a nice mass stout with no hop. Best cold and quick as taste starts to fade as warms.

Poured from can into a pint glass
Looks great, jet black with a massive creamy head, excellent retention, some lace.
S: faint aroma of toasted or burnt malts. Not bad just faint,
T: sweet and dry. Has a slight cream lactose sweetness
F: super silky, low carbonation, super quafflable, rich and full but light body.
O: very approachable beer, haven’t had this in awhile cuz I drank to many at the bar one night a few years ago. But definitely worth a revisit

Pours solid black,light carbonation and despite a slight creamy element it comes off a little thin. Aroma isn't overpowering, roasted malt and coffee mostly. Taste was identical, much better and complex as it warms up

Draft taster at WL.

A: jet black with beautiful frothy, sandy/tan head. Missed the cascades, as this is only a taster. Great lacing and retention.

S: not really much; sourish dry malt?

T: creamy, smooth, dry, slightly burnt toast, liquefied. Not anything sweet about this.

M: decidedly light, some lingering sour malt notes. Creamy and smooth, absolutely the highlight of this classic beer.

O: it's Guinness for goodness sake! Who hasn't had it!? It's good. Great with food. Great with conversation.
