Excellent colour. Thick creamy head. Beautiful, full body, toasted taste which makes you wonder why all other people drink Guinness and look down on you... Best stout that Ireland is to offer.

Going through the classic stouts during SW Ireland trip. Richest of the big 3. Delicious bitter / sweet balance.

Old rating. At Sergio’s in Louisville. Dark brown to black with a big frothy tan head. Aroma is all roasted malt and espresso. Taste is the same. Very smooth with rich flavor. Nice dry finish. Very good.

Ottima stout, con sapore molto corposo. E’ molto piacevol da bere data anche la sua cremosità.

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

teorn88 (3583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
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

kathouse (1234) - Nevada, USA - FEB 15, 2015
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?

lello4ever (241) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
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.
