UPDATED: MAY 30, 2009 Iíll start by saying I am not a fan of Dry Stouts. Guiness has the best pour in the beer biz. The cascade and lace is second to none. I, however, have never been impressed by the flavor. Pop open a bottle of Ipswitch or Sierra Nevada any day over a Guinness. The creamy mouthfeel and luxurious appearance are what really stand out. The flavor is just average.

One of my all-time favorites, old reliable. This beer is smooth and creamy, although I wonít drink it if itís not a draught can.

Great looking beer, nice creamy head, good chocolatey flavor, and readily available most anywhere. Re-rate still a fine beer, but I have had many better stouts now, and must adjust my rating accordingly

Looks better than it tastes. Oh itís not bad or anything - I dunno, I think my expectations were too high. Better on tap I think.
