Not enough body. All I can taste is burnt malt and a tiny bit of hops. Iím not really a fan of dry stouts though so I guess I am biased.

For the record, Iím not a real stout fan. But after the first few sips, this beer sort of íbelongsí to you. Part of it I think is keeping the aftertaste away. Hey, I said I wasnít a stout fan!!

Looks damn good! It isnít... Marketing genius made this beer. Aftertaste is quite harsh and smokey, it leaves you feeling that you need to brush your teeth. Try Murphyís and youíll never drink a guinness again.

I remember the first time I had a Guinness, thinking it was the most incredible thing Iíve ever tasted. Upon revisiting it after trying other stouts, I was dissapointed. Such a pretty boy . . . oh well. Comparatively speaking, watery and simple. Nice smokey taste to it though.

I was very dissapointed with this beer. I felt it was very flavorless, very thin, and very watery. Now I remember having this beer quite some time ago, and very much enjoyed it, so I wonder what has changed, and perhaps this was a bad tap, I donít know, but my for what I tasted tonight, no way it was worth $5 for a pint.
