Very tasty and always better than your average beer. Better from the can, it gives better head!

Good strong stout. Could use a little less on the bite though.

No particular aroma deep black and a nice creamy head. Slightly burned taste. It is a bit supttle, so if it is served wrong it will certainly diminish the experience.

If you get a bad pull it can be below average, but get a good one, and it will blow you away. The benchmark for stouts.

A very heavy stout. Very bitter. Itís good for a wake up call or a meal in a can. Very robust

A nice and heavy stout, creamy top with a rather bitter aftertaste. Obviously a great start or end to an evening. Itís a great first beverage to settle the stomach on a night out; and to the older Isle folks they would remember a drink of a glass of Guinness after a over-night stay in the hospital. Us in North America would only be treated to a flat glass of Ginger Ale.

Not much to say about this that hasnít been said before. Nice and thick, for when you want to drink your dinner, and a nice creamy taste.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 This is a good beer but not really the type i like, it has a rich flavor and a strong aftertaste but a little too thick for me
