Some people say Guinness is an aquired taste, not for me. my alltime favorite beer.

Great creamy drink. Although it is expensive, it is well worth it. Not a beer to get drunk off of, but a good social relaxing beverage.

I had to downgrade the appearance to a 2 because you canít see the beer in the bottle. The íRocket Widgetí does a fine job and drinking this from the bottle was very good. It does take away the mystique of Guinness in the glass, but still good stuff.

A very good session beer. When handled well nice balance between roasted maltiness and hop bite. Rather sensitive to poor handling, though. I do enjoy the mouthfeel of the nitro tap.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 A great heritage, a great drink, dare I state the obvious that its better on tap. However this is definately over rated as this is certainly not the best Guinness variant.

Ah Guinness, my old trusty friend. You are truly the nectar of the gods! A taste and experience so pleasurable that it cannot be captured in can nor bottle.

Very poor cousin of the tap variety. Unless addicted to Stout, forget the bottled variety. Syrupy, overly bitter burnt coffee taste. Non-descript nose. Bland finish. Unlike the tap, this is way over rated.

dark, roasty, creamy and bitter, just the way a dry stout should be. Out of a can lacks of some body.
