A very bland Stout. Typical stout/dark color. Not anywhere near as good as Guinness, but not bad either. I guess I’d rather have a micro-brew stout.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 Smoother than Guinness, very drinkable. A stout recommended for beginners. Rerate: ...which doesn’t in any way imply that Beamish hasn’t a lot to offer the experienced stout drinker as well. Aroma is better than Guinness, and the flavour is very nice too. I simply suggested that the prejudiced anti-stout drinker might find out that he/she actually likes it.

It’s nearly Guinness, but sweater. Easier to drink and cheaper! A good, full stout that slips down nicely. Give it a try instead of Mr G

Alot of pubs in London serve this instead of Guinness. Since Guiness in London is brewed in London, I guess that’s really not the end of the world. Actually once I started drinking local ales and bitters I found this to be kind of a waste of precious pub time.

A pint can of this (complete with ’floating widget’) was my introduction to Dry Stout. This brew pours a muddy black with red highlights. The fully lasting thin creamy brown head is the color and consistancy of a chocolate milkshake. The nose is mostly malt with hints of cookie, straw, molasses, and of course coffee/chocolate. Balanced with slightly hoppy and yeasty aromas that hint of flowers, herbs, soap and sweet dough. The flavor is moderately bitter sweet with a medium finish consisting of chocolate and coffee overtones. The flat full palate is watery/creamy with a metallic feel to the finish. Solid.

Liquid toast. Drink this with a grilled cheese sandwich. Fabulous stout!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2003 I've decided that these nitro stouts are not worth a comment. We all know what they are.

Smoother taste than Guinness, but not as thick or as rich, 2 qualities that realy hurt this beer. Same great appearance and gorgeous head though. Very good overall, half a notch below Guiness and Samuel Smiths.
