This is the stout against which all others are measured. This beer is as good as anyone can hope. Itís an acquired taste, but well worth acquiring.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009 This is a nice brew. Thick and creamy like chocolate milk with a slight roasty chocolate flavor. I really like this one.

Great beer on tap. Truely one of the best stouts. Whenever I go out, I make sure to save room for one of these!!...Also, if you must substitute, draught in a can is good also.

This Beer has got to the finest ever brewed. Some say its an aquired taste, the more you drink of it. Guinness also doesnt travel well so you should go to Ireland to try it. And dont go near the bottles....yeuch...

It is not like the Dublin on-tap version...but if you close your eyes and drink it out of a glass like they want you to...you can almost...almost smell the smoke and hardwood furniture in an Irish pub. I would drink this stuff without any problem at all...whom ever invent the widget should get a life time supply of virgins at his disposal.

Whats not to love about this stout? The aroma, flavor, and that perfect kick! A well poured Guinness Draft beats any other hands down.

Very smoothe and creamy. Love the widget, I hope whoever though of it is a millionaire. There is an widget movie on the Guinness web site. Its not as good as from the tap, but the widget sure helps.
