UPDATED: SEP 6, 2003 This is so good! I guess it is the best looking beer i know, and the taste is allmost as good.

If I had a time machine, do you think that I would go back and stop Hitler? No. Would I take the opportunity to meet Christ? Probably not. I would, however, stop the creation of nitrogen cans. Basically, what you are doing is drinking a flat beer with a hell of a head. Guinness is no exception. The flavor is still fabulous, but the mouthfeel and palate are horrible. I would rate the palate lower than í1í if that was an option. Still, itís Guinness, and how can you stay mad at the one you love?

I tried this once, and didnít know what the fuss is about. Tried it again, and thought I might like it in the future. Then a third time, and well, I really enjoyed the smooth (watery) texture. Now Iím somewhat hooked and am going to try some more stouts.

Guiness is gold. Somebody tell me otherwise. Rich, creamy, and delicious. Full of character without being overbearing. I think Iíve found my true love.

Once you get through the thick, frothy tan head that doesnít quit, there is a nice malty, roasted aroma. The taste is crisp and bitter, with coffee-like tones. Kinda thin body though. Classic and very enjoyable.

This is an Irishmanís everyday stout. My friends and I drink so much Guinness that we decided to buy it by the keg from now on. Having Guinness on-tap in the house is great!

UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 Finally, I get to drink this from the tap. Very nice aroma... I could smell it before the waiter sat it on the table. I felt the stronger aroma was the big difference between this and the bottled draught version. I like the extra stout better, but this stuff is great!

I didnít care for the opening on the can. It was a little flat, but it had a nice texture, and a very strong flavor. Iíve only had this once, so before I can say more Iíll have to give it another go.

decent and drinkable. lacks aroma. predominant flavor is nitrogen. more like a dark ale than a true stout.
