I assume everyone that likes beer has had this and made up their minds already, so there is nothing left to say.

Sour beer for shanty Irishmen. Weak, thin and tart. Hmmm?

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 Guiness used to be the standard for stouts , however these days it is watery amd weak. still it has a bitter deep malt taste and may well be the best beer available in the average hole-in-the-wall bar. higfhly overrated stuff

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 The perfect beer? When itís done right, definitely. Pours perfect black with a crisp, bitter taste.

Quite frankly, I think Guinness is overrated. Donít get me wrong, itís a good beer, very much above average, but if I have the choice of the two (usually you canít find anything but Guinness and Beamish), Iíll take Beamish when Iím in the mood for a stout.

Rich and dark with an appealing creaminess. Good, but not overwhelming flavor. Makes you want to sit back and discuss philosophy in a dark neighborhood pub. Tasty and satisfying.
