I found a place that serves this up PERFECTLY. Itís called Peteís Pizza in Sacramento on íJí street. They work with the distributor to follow all the unique guidelines for the íperfect pint/pourí. Creamy, Big head, Burnt-Chocolate, and coffee flavors add immensly to the enjoyment of this great brew! Iíve had this on tap in a lot of different pubs but youíll notice when you come across a pub that serves it up correctly. Then, you are in for a treat. Enjoy!

Damn this stuff is good. Itís amazing - subtle chocolate and coffee undertones masked by a bitter creaminess - on draft, thereís nothing better. Iíll take a pint of this over a lager anytime... itís beautiful.

Maybe the nitrogen capsule isnít íauthenticí, but I love this stuff. Itís like drinking a big frothy chocolate milk without the nastiness of the milk. Thick texture, multi-layered head, chocolate/coffee flavors.

Primo stuff. Dark as it can get. Light tan head that is still there til the end. Slight hop bite noticed in the head. This beer is so thick, you almost have to chew. One of my favorites.

Oh man. I canít say enough about this beer. Hearty, solid aroma, gorgeous black-as-night color. Frothy, spicy, head. The taste is very strong, spicy, creamy on your palate. There is a wonderful bitter/hops aftertaste. My favorite beer, and an excellent choice.

Smells bland, tastes pretty good, but it bites you afterward. It is alright, in the can.

Guinness Draft is a long-standing icon and for good reason. The color and head have become established classics by which other beers are judged. A properly poured pint (not too cold!!) is something to savour with good friends and many a fond memory have been based on a pint of Guinness. No further explanation is really required.
