Not really impressed. Iíve gotten to like Guinness a lot more over the years, as Iíve gradually gotten used to more bitter stouts; but this bottle has a really nasty edge at the end, and not a lot of nose. Looks and tastes not too different from the can, except not as smooth.

This fits my definition of beautiful beer. When poured right the colour graduation and the head is remarkable. As far as taste goes itís not exactly my favorite beer. It tends to be a little too bitter and grassy for me.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 rerate 05-04-2003: not yet tasted this one in Ireland but I'm getting closer. This one tasted at the Prince Albert in London. The is ok, but light, just a bit roasted. Looks great though, black, light brown creamy head, very good lace. Light sweet, light bitter, average stout. Nice roasted finish with some chocolat.

Motherís milk! It is an acquired taste. This means drink it for a week or two. Trust me, it is so worth it. On a side note, it is actually good for you too.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Roasty, but otherwise uninspiring. Drinkable as a session beer, but lacks complexity beyond the dark roast malt. A firmer body would make it better.
