On tap at Barnaby's.

Almost ebony, a little red around the edges w some light getting through. Creamy head lasts a while as well.

The aroma is hard to pick up... very, very faint. Slight dark malt.

Tastes of very slight coco and wet charcoal. Not really a whole lot going on here, but not unpleasant.

The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but is sooo smooth and creamy. Easily my fav part of this beer.

Overall: Well, it's Guinness. Nothing special, just something you should get on tap at least once

Looked great with an awesome creamy head. Beat lacing imaginable. However that's where the goodness ends. Like most mainstream import beers I feel Guinness has toned.down it's flavor to appealto Amercan beer drinkers. The smell was absent and the taste was barely there. Watery with only a hint of roasted cocoa. I will never drink this beer in the US again.
