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.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2008 This was served real cold and really didn’t have a whole lot of bitterness to it. Seemed a little more creamy then the can as well.

A correctly poured Guinness is an excellent stout. Heck, itís the standard by which all others are measured. However it isnít necessarily the best. In fact it often comes up short in comparison to others. I think Guinness is great but also overrated.

Overrated, and so costs more than others of equal worth. Looses, therefore, on the overall impression. Otherwise it tastes fine.

soothing roasted malt character, there are better stouts... but none that have the psychologically pleasing effect like a Guinness

The beer that made me decide to quit drinking cheap beer. Make sure you get a glass and do it up proper though.
