The CO2 cartridge in the bottom of the bottle or can is a nice add Decor almost a tap glass of Guinness. Smooth nutty chocolatey coffee tasting milkshake of a beer. The bottle of Guinness is okay the Guinness Draught is the next step up and of course the tapped Guinness is one of the top beers

If you enjoy a good dark beer and don't want to spend too much then Guinness is the beer for you. It tastes great, looks great, has a decent scent and abv. It's a great beer. It might take some time to get used to the flavor, but once you do you'll definitely enjoy the blessing that Ireland has given you.

This is the best all around macro beer. The original light beer and session beer before they were a thing - have it for dessert, with a meal, for break fast, in the winter or summer at the beach. Good cold, still good on the warmer side. Available everywhere. Cutting calories? - this beer is for you. For a few calories more than a light beer you get a better tasting over all beer. College kid drinking cheap lager? This beer can be your bridge to better beer. I've done the ladder of all kinds of beers - Guinness is my default beer. I didn't appreciate it when I was younger but I have come back in my older age.

Creamy mouth feel.
Rich in color.
Taste is not overpowering, or bitter.

Looks great but tastes like a creamy beer water. Nitro carbonated, so doesn't have any fizziness, but does have a creamy mouthfeel. In spite of that though, the drink itself is actually very thin and watery. There's some light coffee malt bitterness flavor, but mostly it's kind of watery.

My favorite part of the beer was the head, it was surprisingly creamy! The body was light, for being so dark there was little flavor, somewhat watery, though I picked up roasted notes, coffee like. A bitter hops flavor was noticable at the end. Not a bad session beer, a step up from the American Macro lagers
