Smooth, coffee-flavored stout.
Guinness is a remarkable offering. I've yet to find a creamier stout that's as drinkable and full of flavor as it. It starts with a roasty flavor, gets slightly hoppy and bitter then and finishes extremely clean.
It has a rich but not overwhelming roasted aroma.
Many Americans haven't taken the time to appreciate Guinness. They were exposed to it early in their drinking days, didn't like it and are now against it. With over 50 years of history, Guinness has withstood the test of time, and it's definitely worth your time to give it a try or second chance. You might find something that's readily available and much better than other common draft beers. It's also a relatively light beer (less than half as many calories as most IPAs).
