UPDATED: JAN 8, 2003 Now this is the ultimate in a draft. Excellent head, a very distiguished and bold taste. I could drink this night and day...oh wait..i already do! RERATE 01/08/03: OK...after getting a couple pints of this in me at Dick"s Last Resort in San Diego, because my friends thought it would be funny as hell to get me drunk, ive got to re-rate this downward a bunch. As my palate has developed the sweet malts here have just died down. Good appearance..nice body, but thin mouthfeel and little aroma bring this one down.

I have ot say i had this a while ago and did not like it but after i started drinking some more stouts and i learned to appreciate them more. guinness, even though the price is a little dear it is still a good everyday stout.

Iíve been a bit kind to this in the past. Everyone knows what this tastes like - itís a good dry stout but nothing more.

When poured right this beer is immaculate! However if the server gives it to you in less then 2 minutes the taste can be more than off! I drink this as often as I can!

A good dry stout. I rarely drink this without a bass bottom, but enjoyable when i drink it straight.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2003 So much weaker than the extra stout... Looked great and was very smooth, but was lacking in flavor.

There is nothing more beautiful than a freshly poured Guinness; draft, can, or bottle. The thick creamy head and cascade of carbonation are like watching one of those old movies with a synchronized swimming routine. Not that crap in the Olympics. My heart is warmed and my eyes fixated. OK, so itís watery compared to real draft and the flavor can have a bit of a tin flavor sometimes. But, come on, itís smooth and warms my belly on a cold day like Motherís oatmeal. Yes, I admit drinking it for breakfast on occasion.
