THE standard for Irish stouts. Creamy, frothy head, with a dry, thick body. Hint of carmel, with a roasted slightly burnt hoppiness in the after-taste. A solid staple stout of in and out of irish bars.

First impression was Valvoline mixed with chocolate. Bitter with somewhat weak flavour underneath. Holds together quite well, and is refreshing. Not bad, but maybe overrated.

This is definately the standard by which all others are judged in this category. Although Im noty sure why. It sure looks cool when poured, but after that its sub par. Much better stuff out there folks.

Definitely my favorite stout. If you ever have the chance to go to Ireland you must try their draft variations. The Guiness Ice is phenomenal and would receive a 20 from me.
