UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 rerate 05-04-2003: not yet tasted this one in Ireland but I'm getting closer. This one tasted at the Prince Albert in London. The is ok, but light, just a bit roasted. Looks great though, black, light brown creamy head, very good lace. Light sweet, light bitter, average stout. Nice roasted finish with some chocolat.

Motherís milk! It is an acquired taste. This means drink it for a week or two. Trust me, it is so worth it. On a side note, it is actually good for you too.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Roasty, but otherwise uninspiring. Drinkable as a session beer, but lacks complexity beyond the dark roast malt. A firmer body would make it better.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2004 This was one of the first beers I rated here, and it was my first "favorite beer." Needless to say, after dipping my toes into good beers, I'm not so sure about that designation. I agree that it's overrated; the DFH Chicory Stout I just finished is better than most of the Guinness drafts I've had. Still, the best of them are among the best drinks I've ever had: smooth, thick, smoke- and espresso-flavored, beautiful, and endowed with the richest, longest-lasting, best-tasting head of any beer I know.
