Very similar to the big ’G’ with a touch more bitterness.

A quality beer that you could opt for if you can’t get some Guinness. The after-taste is a little different but still very good.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 18, 2001
Much better than Guinness and Murphy’s, but that ain’t sayin much, frankly. More chocolately and similar to American stouts than the other two Irish dry stouts. Also, not sour and unpleasant. Not a great beer, but probably the best beer out of Ireland. Try Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout instead.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2001
A wonderful Irish stout, characteristic of Guinness, but what Stout isn’t compared to Guinness?

THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2001
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

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.
