This has always been my can't go wrong beer. It is a nice shuttle dark beer with the right thickness and darkness for my taste.

Obviously a way higher rating than most. The reasoning is personal. It was my first beer love.

While not a craft beer or unique taste as many other beers, it should be the favorite for all beer drinkers. If I was stuck on an island and could only drink one beer for the rest of my life (not that I want this to happen), it would be Guinness. I would of course want it served on tap. And with a pour done as well as at the Gravity Bar at Dublin's Gate.

This is a great beer to introduce to your friends who are not diverse in their styles of beer. Most of them would be scared of the color and think it would be too heavy, not taste good, etc. If Guinness is served at the right temperature with a good poor,they may find themselves pleasantly surprised and be willing to try others!

Just as good as in the can,nice dark brownish black color with creamy foamy tan head that holds well and nice lacing.Coffee,malts,licorice a touch of caramel and a mild smokey smell all blend together when you inhale thru the nose,great aroma.Taste is creamy coffee with a smokey licorice and malts comming at you with some hint of nuts,all going down smooth.Looks thick but actually got a thin feel to it,goes down rather lite to tell you the truth,great brew,even though the looks of this tar colored beer looks like a thick molases milkshake,it actually is very easy to drink and a few of these a day is quite easy to do,doctor recommended too,can you believe that.
