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.

Roasted, or better burnt coffebeans. Creamy frothy big light brown head on the black body. It is weak and tastes watery. palate is syrupy with a metallic finish. Flat carbonation. It is better on tap!

Another tried and true grocery store beer. If your picking up a loaf of bread and you want to get some good beer without making another trip, grab some Guinness. A little watery compared to some of the better stouts. Probably one of the longest lasting creamy heads on a beer though.

The draught guinness stout can vary from bar to bar. Some bars get it nitrated, others carbonated. But for a stout, this is the absolute most versatile. It goes good with most any bar and resturant foods. Now I will freely admit that there are several stouts out there better than Guinness, But In my opinion, Guinness is to stout, as The Beatles were to Rock and Roll
