Very impressed with the ’canned’ version. Much better than I thought. Very good flavor and appearance

This bottled version is ment to be drunk from the bottle. Do NOT pour this beer. I thought it was watery nonetheless. Cool shaped bottle kinda like a coke bottle, fit real well in your hand.

Quite good, seemed a bit thin though. I had the ’extra stout’ a while back, I don’t remember much except I like this better.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Yeah, get it in draft if at al possible. The canned stuff looks great, though. Very drinkable. I think the 4.2% alcohol is a little ambitious. Re-rate, March 18, 2004. Sorry, this stuff seems more and more to be all about looks and texture and not flavor. The flavor disappears right in the middle, and bit of a dry finish. So I've changed my mind: Avoid. Get the regular, non-"draught" bottles instead.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 it has a nice head and flavour and is creamy and smooth. the head lasts longer than the beer. it is so smooth creamy and chocolatey. can't get enough of it. i've never had it out of a bottle though. i love the stark contrast between the dead black liquid, and the head. it's such a smooth line.

a fantastic stout if you like bitter beers. Personally, I love Guinness when it’s mixed with Harp or Bass as a half and half. But will alwasy be a classic. I love it!

good looking beer, but that’s where the attraction stops for me, just nasty

While not quite as flavorful as the Extra Stout, it is unquestionably Guinness.
One of the world’s magnificent achievements in brewing. Delicious!
DON’T drink it out of the can, pour it slowly into a tall glass. Black as night until you hold it against a VERY strong light,
then it’s deeeeep purple color is revealed. Anyone who guzzles this should be flogged - a true ’sipping’ brew, and the universal standard for stout. If you don’t like Guiness, you will not like any stout, period.

It might just be me but all of the Stouts that I have tried have seemed a bit too watery, this one included. If you like stouts I suppose this one is as good as any other. Otherwise, you will not find anything new here. I find Porters to be much more palatable than Stouts if you have never tried one.
