This is my favorite beer, hands down. Itís creamy, flavorful and has a good head retention. I canít wait until I try it in Ireland; the real Guiness.

This is my favourite stout. The texture and thickness makes for a smooth assured pint.

Iím with Aubrey, no way Iím drinking this from the bottle nor at extra cold temps. That just defeats the purpose of this, or any, good stout.

By reputation alone, this beer should score high. But, it is very light tasting to me. Very smooth. Not bad, but itís bark is worse than itís bite. Good with snacks!
