I prefer the creamier, less bitter taste of this beer over Guinness Stout in the bottle. Lighter flavor than most other stout beers that Iíve tried. This is one of my favorite beers.

I assume everyone that likes beer has had this and made up their minds already, so there is nothing left to say.

One of the best macrobrews ever. If you can get the right pour, and the right temperature, there is not much that can beat this beer in a bar. Thick and with a consistent head, This is an all-star.

still best on tap in Ireland, and not too cold ( forget the ice cold version ).

Some people like it, some really donít. I really donít like it. Iíve tried it numerous times, almost every time Iím in an Irish pub, I have a Guinness. Didnít like it the first time and still donít like it. I am keen on blond beers and Guinness is as brown as it gets. Looks great though, the white creamy stuff is excellent for sticking your chin in and making a really cool beard and moustache.

Now this is a beer, starts off smooth and creamy, tastes like coffee and chocolate, had it draught, it was the only beer at the bar that I wanted to try, really want to have this for real in Ireland now.

Great looking beer! Black with a light tan colored creamy head. Nice aroma; rich roasted barley,almost burnt with caramel and coffee in the background. Body seems thin for a stout. Heatry flavor that stays with you a while. Delicious. Not my favorite beer, but one I find myself craving a couple times a year.
