The classic Irish stout. This is what I drink when I don't want to think about what I'm drinking. Pours a very thick, creamy head. Smells like dark malt. Tastes like malt and a hint of coffee. Easy on the hops. The mouthfeel is near perfect. Better than the classic Extra Stout in my opinion.

A good but not great stout. Beer pours a strong coffee color with a light tan head. The smell is dark malts and some caramel. The flavor is watered down coffee and malts. Overall not one of the better offerings from Guinness.

L -- Pours a very dark filtered amber with a two-finger cream colored head produced with moderate pour. Phone flashlight shines through the glass no problem. Decent retention and minimal lacing
S -- Bittersweet chocolate, dark roasted barley malts, nuts. Maybe a touch of cream?
T -- Bakers chocolate, metal, barley malts, cheap adjuncts....
F -- Incredibly watery. Absolutely no body whatsoever, for a stout. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Would not have guessed this was nitrogenated
O -- Cheap, but pretty disappointing especially compared to the original version

I love it, I will always love it. This beer when properly tapped and pulled, is one of the best things on earth. The beautiful dark ruby color, the surprising light yet flavorful taste. So many people think of Guinness as a heavy beer. I always shake my head and wonder if they've ever actually drank it? Love in a glass.

Well had so many of these suppose I should review it. poured from a Nitro can into a Guiness Pint glass. i know, I know, how unpure! listen, as good as we Canadians can get ok. pours black tar night. nose of roasted toasted malt. the collar is what it is so well known for and the Nitro can still does the trick - think rich, and long lasting. taste - like no other stout . Starts sweet and ends just slightly bitter. Father was told to drink it “like a cold glass of milk on a hot summer day” when he first experienced it. try five of them and you will never claim to be lactose intolerant again.
