Beamish is just awesome. Tried it first in Ireland. Now my wife's best friends husband brings me some cans every now a then. Nitro can, pours dark and its a beautiful sight watching the tan head settle out. Creamy and very smooth. A bit roaster and more flavor than Guinness. Please import his to America Heineken. It's superior to Guinness and Murphy's, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at O’Neills, Dublin. It pours a brown color with a light beige head. Aroma is roasty, with notes of toasted nuts, wood, cocoa powder, vanilla, tangy wild berries. Taste is medium roasty and lightly sweet, with a tangy berry finish. Notes of chocolate, coffee, burnt wood. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, quite tasty

On draught at The Creamery Bar. Dense nitro foam on a deep mahogany body. Not as much chocolate as a Guinness but extremely smooth and creamy. Thank you sir, may I have another?

Nera con il tipico dito di schiuma beige compatto. Una signora stout, ovviamente acquosa, amara e per nulla frizzante, ma con un gusto più deciso rispetto ad altre stout come la guinness. Le birre inglesi come queste non sono il mio forte, però nel suo genere è buona.

"although the same traditional style, this one is smoother and has a slightly more pronounced flavor than Guinness, and therefore is a more enjoyable beer."
