Usually get this in the can with the nitro widget. Definitely my favorite "light" stout. Very creamy, especially on those first few sips through the nitro foam head. Creamy, a little chocolatey, and very roasty. Extremely drinkable. That being said, this is a light, watery stout compared to any dense craft brew. People are obviously comparing this to heavy, flavorful stouts. If you're in the mood for densely flavorful, heavy stouts, don't get this. If you're in the mood for an extremely drinkable, creamy, toasty stout - get this.

Dark body almost black with soft white bit of coloring foam soft bitter rather smooth frothy cream slightly watery in the finish, alternate for the subtle skinny and low-grade beers

Honestly not much to say. My go to beer when I go out if they don't have craft.

Draft > Can > Bottle.

I am disappointed with inconsistencies from can to can though.

Who doesn't love a Guinness? Its iconic at this point. The real Irish stout.

It pours black with a solid head that sticks around. Remember to two step pour since its a nitrogen beer!

It loses points on the nose because it doesn't really have much of one. Very feint in the glass.

On the taste it's AWESOME. maybe a bit malty for people that don't drink stouts. It has the perfect dry creemyness that beers should chase. It tastes like coffee, cream, and malt. Delicious.

It loses points on the mouthfeel because it's a bit thin for what I want but that doesn't make it bad.

Overall Guinness is iconic for a reason. It's friggin delicious! This is my goto beer whenever craft isn't available.

Everybody go have a Guinness!

A watered down stout which is short on texture and flavor.
