UPDATED: AUG 23, 2003 Much better than the bottled variety. Great appearance. Lasting stiff tan head. The visiual aspects dont get any better than this beer. On the aroma and flavor side, aroma was light and malty. Palate still dissapoints. Taste was ok with the coffee and toasty taste. Not my favorite but I can see why it has it followers.

I love dark beers occasionaly. Going from a light beer to a dark beer is like going from soup to steak. Light is just swallowed. With a nice thick dark beer like guinness you gotta chew it!

Great looking beer, great head, good flavor. Best part about it is you can get it almost everywhere. Bad part is few sellers can pour a decent pint. Good beer if served correctly.

Iím not a huge fan of guinness in the first place, but this is exceptionally bad. No carbonation and it taste is somewhat reminisent of black coffee served cold. If it werenít for that nifty widget inside, it wouldnít be worth drinking at all.

I doubt my ratings numbers can reflect anything but the sheer mediocrity of this mass-marketed boring beer thatís more of an image and heritage-association beer than anything of real quality.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Always a winner! - at least when the alternatives are average lagers. The bitter and coffee-like aftertaste may not be a favourite with everyone. Rerate: Well, I'll never turn down a Guinness - but still has to take off a few points. It's good, but not THAT good!

Extremely Overrated I watch people buying this highly marketed swill, to me its just foul. Nitrogen ?, makes this even worse than it already is. A week ago I spent the evening drinking Alpha Klaus at the maproom in Chicago and when we went to dinner, & I thought this was their best choice. Whats up with that anyway a supposed 4 star resturant and they donít have a beer in the place I could rate over a 2. Guniness is swill, line it up next to a Speedway,Bells,etc and they all blow this one away. Sure those may be different types of stouts, but this one is still a loser,NOT Recommended, let us call it the Budweiser of stouts.
