Great stout! For some reason, itís much better in England than here in the states. State-side tends to be more bitter, and less creamy. A beautiful beer to watch drawn. Great foaming action and resulting head. Full flavoried, creamy, with a little bitter.

Yep not only all over Boston but everywhere else in the cultured US ... rests at 4.2% abv and is not too bad as long as the pub cleans the beer lines once in a while.

Godís Gift to mankind! Quite a nice and very complex burnt taste. The Widget does a good job of making it Draught in a can. I perfer the Draught Tap at the pub, but that costs US 4.75 a pint (ouch) while this costs arround $2 a pint can. If you want a good beer try this, but you have to try it at least twice because you probally will not like your first pint, at least I didnít. Itís an aquirred taste, like Moxie. Aquire the taste and you know íGuinness is good for you!í Well at least they used to say that :-)

This definitely tastes the best in Ireland, and they pur it the way it should be. hard to come back to it in Tassie but i forced my way through the pints until the taste was again something like mothers milk.

Although itís somewhat thin, Guinness is absolute bliss. Extraordinarily easy to drink, smooth, and flavorful.

One of my favorites - just tried the new draft bottle and it was quite good. Nothing beats a well poured draft though.
