Pours a beautiful dark brown with a very creamy frothy head. Malty flavor with a hint of hops on the aftertaste. Not a bad stout but not one of my favorites.

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 (3489) - 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

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?

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.

"although the same traditional style, this one is smoother and has a slightly more pronounced flavor than Guinness, and therefore is a more enjoyable beer."

I am really missing my Beamish. I tried it while visiting Ireland and can’t find it anywhere near me at home. I really would like to be able to have this again.

My favourite beer, so I will note my bias in advance. Without doubt, the finest example of the Irish dry stout style that is produced by a major brewery. In comparison to the obvious competition from Guinness, Beamish has always struck me as a ’less rushed’ version of the style; the aroma is stronger, particularly with regards to the roasted malt, the palate is certainly more full bodied, and the taste more complex, as not only the traditional coffee notes are present, but a much larger presence of dark chocolate and roasted barley. Dry stout is a very ’blunt’ style, but I do not think that anyone does a finer job (Murphy’s is a close second!).
