I was surprised by the taste. Very rich and creamy.

Almost black, thin persistem creamy head. Subdued nose of malts and traces of coffee. This wasnt bad, malts come out nicely as it warmed, late bitterness. Overall not a ton of flavor.

Doesn’t even compare to St. Ambroise(McAuslan) or Samuel Smith stouts. A great starter for this type of beer, though.

Not bad but it doesn’t compare to the tap version. Half the fun is watching the transition after pouring from a tap.

I have’nt had the real Irish stuff on tap, but the local stuff is the best stout I have had. If you tip the pint glass with guinness upside down it stays in the glass...no really, I used to dislike the palate of stouts but once aquired you start to crave it.

Don’t get me wrong. I like Guinness.But I have a problem with the finish on this beer. Too much of a burnt taste. I understand the need for toasting malt but burning. Good character, great look, good beer.

dark black colour, big legendary creamy head, black chocolate aroma, smooth, mildly bitter, slightly roasted, long dry and bitter aftertaste - probably the best of the most overrated beers in the world
