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!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 What more can I ask for. It is obviously my favorite without a doubt. My only pefrect 5 (so far).

I prefer the Extra Stout to the draught, and the bottle to the can, but this is still top notch stuff. A beer to be savored.

Absolutly no aroma but looks just like keg version and the head will still be in the glass the next morning. Chocolate seems the more dominant flavour with underlying roasted coffee bitterness, although the aftertaste is much smoother and lest bitter than the buinness original.

Like it or not (I do,) this is a definitive stout. Certainly itís from the first macro ever, but itís really good anyway, and itís fun to laugh at the fratboys that think this is really strong.

I found a place that serves this up PERFECTLY. Itís called Peteís Pizza in Sacramento on íJí street. They work with the distributor to follow all the unique guidelines for the íperfect pint/pourí. Creamy, Big head, Burnt-Chocolate, and coffee flavors add immensly to the enjoyment of this great brew! Iíve had this on tap in a lot of different pubs but youíll notice when you come across a pub that serves it up correctly. Then, you are in for a treat. Enjoy!

Damn this stuff is good. Itís amazing - subtle chocolate and coffee undertones masked by a bitter creaminess - on draft, thereís nothing better. Iíll take a pint of this over a lager anytime... itís beautiful.

Maybe the nitrogen capsule isnít íauthenticí, but I love this stuff. Itís like drinking a big frothy chocolate milk without the nastiness of the milk. Thick texture, multi-layered head, chocolate/coffee flavors.

Downing a pint of Guinness draft at a pub with friends...nothing beats it.
