UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 it has a nice head and flavour and is creamy and smooth. the head lasts longer than the beer. it is so smooth creamy and chocolatey. can't get enough of it. i've never had it out of a bottle though. i love the stark contrast between the dead black liquid, and the head. it's such a smooth line.

a fantastic stout if you like bitter beers. Personally, I love Guinness when itís mixed with Harp or Bass as a half and half. But will alwasy be a classic. I love it!

While not quite as flavorful as the Extra Stout, it is unquestionably Guinness.
One of the worldís magnificent achievements in brewing. Delicious!
DONíT drink it out of the can, pour it slowly into a tall glass. Black as night until you hold it against a VERY strong light,
then itís deeeeep purple color is revealed. Anyone who guzzles this should be flogged - a true ísippingí brew, and the universal standard for stout. If you donít like Guiness, you will not like any stout, period.

It might just be me but all of the Stouts that I have tried have seemed a bit too watery, this one included. If you like stouts I suppose this one is as good as any other. Otherwise, you will not find anything new here. I find Porters to be much more palatable than Stouts if you have never tried one.

This has to be one of my favorite beers. Its got great flavor, and so thick. I would take this over most every beer.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 Dark chocolate with a thick head. Who doesn't like the anticipation of waiting for the head to dissapate? A smooth well balanced stout. Great creamy texture, nicely malted. This is one of my favorite brews.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 I'll make this short and simple. Draught (tap) version - boring and watery. Canned version - bad. Metallic and horrible. Bottled draught version - just ok. Not offensive, but still lacking in pretty much every area. Guinness is just further proof that nitrogen ruins beer. Oh, I know what the problem is! They were too warm when I drank them! That must be it. Once upon a time this beer must have been something special. That time is gone.
