Not just a beer, but a way of life. I want royalties for the new slogan.

Flat and watery. Not to much flavor except for a little bitterness

UPDATED: APR 11, 2009 Not as good as the can or tap, but still Guinness with a little more fruitiness and bitterness. Doesnít seem as thick as the can.

WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2002
Good beer. Tasty, dark, gives out more head then a South Philly hooker. This beer has been around for many years and will continue to do so. It reminds me of a root-beer float but with lard and alcohol. Anyway, this beer is made very over-rated buy the goatee strokes of the world, and that’s killing this classic. This beer was created for hard working men who eat red meat and have sex with enormous women, so by the end of the day they can forget all of there pains and get loaded and pissed really fast. Furthermore, go down to your local Irish pub and get a pint of Guinness, it will be enjoyed.
