Not what it used to be! Taste is not stout like , it's been mellowed, maybe to attract beer or lager drinkers. Now just a dark red beer not a stout anymore, disappointing.

Can't say this is the best beer I've had.

It looks really nice and dark, but I can't help but notice it's a very "flat" tasting beverage and lacks many flavors in quality. In a way, it's like tasting a sort of a weak "tea-bagged" kind of water that takes multiple sips to really get its experience and there isn't much else beyond that. Overall, it's all right to have as a substitute if you don't have an availability of greater beers in the fridge but it's not something I'd have everyday.

Starting with the black look, pouring it is orgasmic and watching it settle is just great. With its light ABV of 4.2 the beer has a great feel and not so alcoholic taste. It is very creamy so it slides down through your throat with a woody, nutty and coffee-ish after taste. You can feel different tastes in every different sip. Definitely one of my favorites. Cheers already!

It's funny, being a guy grown up on pale lager all his life, tasting Guinness for the first time, and absolutly loving it. It is a low carbonated beer so you dont have to burp and all the time, i love that. Tastes so fresh from a 425ml can. This is what i taste: Weak taste of burnt coffee, cream??, I am a beginner. Feels and looks very good, pitch black with a 1,5 finger creamy head.

Gotta love Guinness

Poured into a Guinness glass from one of the special edition cans

L - The beer, when poured right, looks beautiful. The stout settles perfectly, and you get a perfect creamy tan head that lasts.
S - Roasted malts and chocolates.
T - Incredibly smooth, but but a little lacking in flavor (a bit watery). The roasted malts still come through though, making the beer feel nice and hearty.
F - simple mouth feel but a very easy drinker. Does taste like a draught beer even though it came from a can.
O - this is always a nice go-to stout, and Guinness will always be distinctive and unique. There might be better stouts, but I'm happy to drink one of these anytime.
