Pours jet black with a tan head that hangs around. Really pretty beer

Smells like roasted malts

Tastes- Big flavor of roasted malts with a little bit of coffee.

Mouthfeel-Big fan of the mouthfeel of this beer. Creamy and heavy. A liquid meal. Might actually be the best texture out there.

OVerall- I liked a guinness here and there. I haven't had it since I went vegan but it's definitely a decent beer that you can get almost anywhere. Everyone should try it at least once.

A - Looks great if poured properly into a Guinness pint glass. Can't fault how it looks.

S - Roasted barley, possibly dark chocolate and hops.

T - To taste properly take a slug of it rather than a sip. You need to get some dark with the bitter cream on top. Roasted barley comes through and you get bitter hop flavour from the top creamy part. Almost tastes like a coffee mixed with ale.

M - Wonderful creamy texture, the best if directly from the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.

O - Not really a stout drinker but I quite like Guinness, if only it was not so bitter. I prefer Murphy's stout as its a bit sweeter and easier to drink. On occasion I enjoy a pint of Guinness but one pint is enough for me in a sitting.
