I think Iíam one of the few that really thinks that the bottled version is superior to this. This tastes way to much like Murphyís. While creamy and satifying it just doesnít have that extra bite (alcohol content) like the bottled version. All things considered, it is still competent but still middle of the road.

I like the fact the head never goes away. Alittle heavy but not bitter. Pretty good.....

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 The head is thick and sweet. The body is sort of bitter. This reminds me more of black coffee than beer. I'm going to try a pub draft to compare...the widget pour from the can is pretty cool.
*update: had Guiness on tap. Definitely a good stout. Even better on St. Patrick's day*

Excellent stuff, can be savored or downed like water. Second only to the Cadillac Mountain as far as stouts go.

Beer??? My ass, I donít know how to call this shit but it sure ainít beer.
When I first tried this one it could just as simply be Irish coffee to me, or beer with cola and water but surely no beer.
I feel sorry for all those Irish people when they get this in every bar and club.
Altough it looks like Iím about the only with this opinion. I could only find 2 other ratings below 3.
So no more Guinness for me.

Great appearance when itís first poured. Very smooth on the palate, but I donít like the nitrogenated. It tastes a little flat. Great head though.
Good flavor but I slightly prefer the Extra Stout.
