UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 Classic Irish Stout. What can you say, great creamy head, nice bitter / sweet taste of roasted barley but not too heavy in body.

Apparently I'm one of the few non-lovers of Guinness. I like a lot of dry stouts but Guiness just doesn't do it for me.

One of my favourite beers. Me and Dave drinks it all the time. Only £1.69 in Spoons! Magic.

Dark in color but with a slightly creamy taste. a good head on it, but i'm sure that's due more to the little nitrogen widget in the bottle. i'll have this on draft the next time i'm out to get a truer taste for it.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Cream texture and light sweet flavor are the dominant characteristics. Chewy - as much of a meal as a drink.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 I can't believe I used to like this stuff so much. Had a few the other night for the first time in a while, and was really let down. Super watery, basically no aroma, just a bad stout.

Actually, not a bad little stout. The nitrogen charge gives it a very creamy look and mouthfeel. It's mild, not very overwhelming and rather simple, but still very good. I like the creamy head and mouthfeel. Tastes a lot like a Starbucks double latte, to be quite honest. It's good, though. Certainly those with their noses up their, um, in the air aren't going to find this to be a first-rate beer, but it's still damned good. Certainly, IMHO, the best of the "common man's" beer (OK, I guess my nose is up there as well!)

Well, this is simply one of my favourites! (a piece of art when served in Ireland, as close as possible to St James´s Gate..;) Beautiful thick, creamy head. Chocolate aroma with some coffee flavour. Dry, longlasting finish.

The extra stout was way better. This came off watery and dry. Nitro is no good. But still, this is guinness....
