The best of the Irish stouts. Better than Guinness, but it doesn’t get as much play. It’s hard to find, since most pubs will favor guinness over it, but if you can find it, drink the keg dry.

This is one of my favorite Irish stouts. It is much better in Ireland though.

Pretty good, but not as good as Boddington’s. Very Guinness-like, but not the same flavor. Overall, a good buy.

Ehh, not bad but I prefer Murphy’s Irish Stout. Not too bad if you like cream.

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.
