Iíd agree with anybody who thinks this stout is overrated if they had it in a bottle or even a can, but off the tap you canít find a better stout. My goodness, my Guinness.

This is a great beer on tap, in a bottle or in the can with nitrogen balls. Excellent color and huge head.

I donít like this style of beer, a coffee tasting version of John Smithís extra smooth.

Description: Having been a constant boozer for over 35 years I have found that Guinness is the one drink certain to be of good quality wherever I am. In London the flat bitter beer is not to my taste, so I drink Guinness. In Dublin I drink Guinness because it is like a gift from God there and well, it is an essential part of the Irish experience. In short Guinness is the most consistantly tasteful brew I have encountered in my many years of dribbling on the shirt front. There should be a monument to Guinness in the land, if itís good enough to drink, itís good enough to stand. (Apologies to the late and brilliant Spike Milligan).

St. Paddyís day and me with a Guiness in my hand. Wonderful rich (Though many Imperial Stouts are better) this is still the standard, a great beer and one I hope to drink for many years to come.

There are much better stouts than this. This beer is way to commercialized to be good. It is just dark and roasted....nothing too distinctive or special...give me chocolate or plums...anything!
