First, no beer is as beautiful a Guiness, just poured from a nitro widget can. The glorious cascading head sliding down the sides of pint glass is the apex of beer craft. You can disagree, but then you’d be wrong.

There is little to smell, and the taste is simple. I’ll suggest, however, a beer doesn’t need an initial 32 flavor notes and a slowly evolving flavor profile to qualify as incredible. When simple is nearly perfect, it is. That’s a Guinness.

Mouth feel is incredible, like nearly any nitro would be.

Overall, this is your go to sessionable stout, available in every grocery store and most gas stations. It’s good on a hot day (shock your friends)! It’s great on a cold day. Guinness deoch an fuinnimh!

더블린에서 마신 기네스는 그 어떤 맥주보다도 부드러웠다. 목넘김이 없다시피 한, 너무도 깔끔했던 느낌. 향과 맛은 과하지 않고 적당했다.

From notes 1/14/13: Pours a ruby tinted brown/black producing 3 fingers of frothy, lasting, light tan head that leaves a thick coating of clumpy lace. Aroma is thin and faintly sour, chocolate, roasted malts with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is a watery version of the nose with a dry, lightly bitter and sour finish which dominates the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied and thinly creamy with a peppery bite.

Guinness Draught is an old standby, as far as I am concerned. It delivers a great look and aroma, and tastes very nice as well. I love the fact that this stout has a low price tag, yet tastes and feels great.
Something that's cool about this beer is the head. It is very thick and tan-colored, while the beer itself is so dark. I don't know why, but I love that.

Look- dark with a nice surge to start things off. Head is around two fingers thick and tan colored.
Smell- muted notes of dark chocolate and coffee.
Taste- really smooth and creamy, but that’s it’s downfall. It’s so smooth the flavors seem to be muted, I was left wanting more from this stout.
Mouth feel- medium to thick.
Overall- it’s an ok stout, but I prefer Ten Fidy, or Left Hand Milk stout instead.
