Very good stout, good body, color and aroma. Bitterness at an ideal balance.

A damn good stout. I liked this even better than Guinness. A touch richer and had a great chocolate flavor.

Lost plenty of overall impression points for being too thin. I think Murphy’s is eve thicker. I’ve had this on tap in a pub and from the bottle. Unremarkable, I prefer any Guinness to this. This is very well-balanced, highly chugable, and woth every penny, but it’s really not worth writing hom about. If you’ve had the new Guinness in the bottle with the ’rocket widget’, and liked it, you’ll enjoy this one too.

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.

Beamish is better than Guinness, but not as good as Murphy’s. I would drink it any chance I get since all three are good beers.

This reminds me of why I love stouts. Dark and beautiful in color and taste, and better than Guinness. I just don’t conisder it that dry, I thought it was a little sweet.

Nitro Can. Had this in Cork in 98 and haven’t had the G since. Not as heavy and a lot fresher tasting. Nice and chocolatey, good level of bitterness. Slightly sweet. Awesome head and mouthfeel. Great Stout in a can!

WOOO HOOOO, I love Beamish. God bless the Irish, Beamish and Crawford and the Cork brewing company. Of course now its brewed by Scottish and new castle. Anyway, a dry Irish stout, black in color. I love the head thick thick thick, lasts forever in my glass. Served at 46 degrees. I love the cascade of the head in my glass and watch it like a waterfall to the bottom of my glass. No carbonation, smooth like an espresso and carmel. I have a new favorite!
