  • SRM Color: 40
  • Brewer: Guinness & Co.
  • Brewer's Description:  Swirling clouds tumble as the storm begins to calm, settle, breathe in the moment, then break through the smooth, light head to the bittersweet reward. Unmistakeably GUINNESS beer, stout, or draught , from the first velvet sip to the last, lingering drop. And every deep-dark satisfying mouthful in between. Pure beauty.
  • Russ' Rating: 10/10
  • With the Brew: Flogging Molly The Chieftains Or pretty much anything!
  • Comments: In a world filled with cheap hamburgers, serial cartoons, and a host of other things that claim to be much more than they actually are, it is uncommon to find something as beautiful and genuine as a glass of Guinness. I don't normally swim in the main stream, but Guinness enjoys an immense popularity for a good reason. It is great Beer. The head is thick and creamy, with a texture thick enough to to leave a peak on the end of your nose. The Draught Beer has a cascading roll of carbonation that almost seems to defy gravity as the bubbles actually fall down the inside of the glass, giving the beer a mystique that is only rivaled by flavor of the first sip. Guinness drinks smoother than any other Beer I have had. It has a thick, rich roasted Barley and Malt taste, with the perfect balance of Hops to create the most satisfying Beer you may ever taste. I do not plan on offering many beers a perfect 10/10 rating, but this one deserves it. Guinness is a Beer like no other. It has History, Beauty, Flavor, and Magic!
