4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 500 mL can: We just lost good old Beamer in Canada as well due to multinational business issues. No where near as bitter in the fnish as Guinness and way more flavour than Murphys. Mild hints of oatmeal, caramel, molasses with bigger notes of coffee. MiIld but great frothy flavours, which slightly heighten as it warms. Hard to find a stout this versatile. Anybody I give a can to, can’t believe how light it is. It is crazy how this beer can have so much flavour and yet so few calories and alcohol. What a treasure this stout is.

Only had it once, too bad it’s so hard to find around here.
Re-rate: It holds up well; not much in the way of head but a great taste.

No longer in stock? I buy it all the time here in Louisiana. Unless this just happened. Aynway, Great brew. Super smooth, better than the Guinness we get. Up there with Murphys. Anyone know if any nitro stouts come in mini kegs?

Im a guinness draught drinker, But sometimes its nice to have somthing thats a little different, yet not totally straying far from home.
This beer is GREAT! the head is a little less thick then guinness and a little darker as well.
Perhaps even a little nicer aftertaste than guinness draught, a tad bit sweeter perhaps?
Guinness Drinkers, this beer is as good, its a photo finish!
one thing I did notice,I can drink Guinness after Guinness, 4-5 pints at a sitting and the alcohol does not affect me, 2 pints of Beamish had quite a kick I was not expecting, Nice buzz,very very very nice beer.
unfortunatly i have heard rumors or there distributor dropping the brand in the us. what a shame.

Beautiful pour: Dark brown with a creamy brown head that lasts and lasts. Smells like chocolate milk. Chocolate & toffee flavor with a [surprisingly] thin mouth feel. A nice bitter aftertaste is another surprise. Wonderful! Just wonderful!

Pours nearly black with a long lasting small bubble tan head. Very smooth with a little more do iciness than a Guinness.

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

Black, wonderful tan head that lasts and a smooth flavor. More coffee than chocolate, this is great!
