A nice and heavy stout, creamy top with a rather bitter aftertaste. Obviously a great start or end to an evening. Itís a great first beverage to settle the stomach on a night out; and to the older Isle folks they would remember a drink of a glass of Guinness after a over-night stay in the hospital. Us in North America would only be treated to a flat glass of Ginger Ale.

Not much to say about this that hasnít been said before. Nice and thick, for when you want to drink your dinner, and a nice creamy taste.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 This is a good beer but not really the type i like, it has a rich flavor and a strong aftertaste but a little too thick for me

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 swilled many pints before I realized that other breweries make stouts, too. - Danger in getting this from the tap is that if it's stored and served improperly, it sucks. Served correctly, it's maybe slightly better than from the draught can or bottle.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black w/ a dense, creamy nitro head. Faint dusty aroma w/ slight notes of bitter chocolate. Thin watery mouthfeel. Flavours were dull and watery. Very little malt character (no chocolate, no coffee) slight roasted bitterness in the finish. Extremely dissappointing.

I didnít like Guinness when I first tried it many years ago, but it is an acquired taste that grows on you. Much imitated and never equalled. Excellent head, dark, creamy, nutty taste, thick consistency.

I love this stuff. And if you can ever get in on tap go for it big time. Very tasty and
easy to find.

Pours nice out of the bottle, good creamy head, taste like guinness and smells like it. Still much better on the nitro tap.
