I like Beamish better than Guiness. Very heady.

Oh so very thick. When I first poured it out of a draught can I thought it was a milkshake.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 Not as bitter as Guinness. And much better. My favorite Irish Stout

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 5, 2000
Wow, I was impressed. The aroma was not as nice as Guinness, and I somewhat expect the bittnerness of it, but for those who don’t like the Guinness sour tones, you’ll love this.

This is for the can version. Very similar to Guinness, however, it doesn’t have that bitter, slightly sour bite and it wasn’t as roasted. I would almost call this Guinness Light from a flavor standpoint.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2000
Nice and foamy with a ’milkshake-like’ head. Initially sweet, quickly turns to sharp and sour. Slight black licorice flavor. Thin and sort of watery (when comparing to many other stouts). Fairly enjoyable, but no Shakespeare or Guinness, by any means.

boto (1808) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 24, 2000
Often forgotten (even in Ireland) because of the other 2, but this is a fine stout.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 re-rate coming soon.
