If in the mood, an excellent drink. Great ícoffeeíishí flavour which makes for an ideal drink at anytime. You canít go wrong with a Guinness!

A thick stout. Nice to have once in a great while. You have to be in the mood for it, not just ícause itís there. If you consume this daily, you probably have some serious digestive problems.

*almost* my favourite stout, a bitter aftertaste though.

A wonderful looking pint. I love watching the brown waterfall disolve into a thick black color. Itís got a thick, creamy head that lasts quite some time. A good roasted aromoa. Really, a very beautiful pint to look at. The taste does not disapoint. I canít have a lot of these, but itís a great treat once in a while.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Re-rate after becoming a little more worldly in terms of beer...

Very simple taste with a fake nitrogen creaminess. At least it looks nice in the glass. This is a good gateway beer, but that's about it.

This may define Irish stout but I prefer offerings from Rogue and Deschutes. Guinness pales in comparison (Low alcohol, little to no body)
