Guinness is the greatest beer - ever. I routinely drink many, many pints of this. Rich, creamy slight chocolate taste. No aftertaste. Beautifully bitter and dark with full-bodied head. Guinness, God and Family are the most important things in my life. If you canít get it on tap , the pub draught cans are the best alternative. The draught bottles are too watery and the extra stout bottles have a burnt aftertaste. Guinness is good for you!

Love the burnt taste, very light for a stout, can consume large quantities of this stout

Far too watery to be of any value to the stout lover. Itís hilarious how low the alcohol content of an opaque beer is.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Trying Guinness in Ireland makes all the difference. Beautiful beer with a beautiful head, great aroma. The palate changes dramatically through the pint, and I must admit that it is a pleasant beer to have on a cold day. But here in the US, I'm not such a fan.

i just donít like this beer, to me it was like drinking a flat soda, it didnt have much aroma at all and no taste, i think i will have to try it from the tap, whats up with the the little plastic rocket ship looking thing in the bottle?, i didnít get the point of that.

The stout that I compare all other stouts to. Even though itís fake itís nice that theyíve found a way to simulate a draft stout in a can or bottle.

This is the budweiser of stouts. The thing it lacks most is flavor. Theyíve done a good job marketing it, but overall its not worth much.

Iím not such a fan of this one. The Extra Stout is one of my favorite beers ever regardless of the hype, but this one falls off a bit for me. Itís still nice and black, but the flavor is a little moe watered down and kind of creamy. Good, but Iíll stick to the Extra Stout.
