Very light but watery and loses its flavour after a couple of pints. Good if yourintention is to just have one or two.

I love Guinness Stout! However this draught in a bottle only does one thing for me, makes it convenient. I first ordered this in a bar when it first hit the market and I thought the waitress was a real rookie when she didnít bring me a glass. She said, íread the bottle.í Anyway, if you have a glass on hand, the can is much better and if you are at the bar, get it on draught if itís available. The other rip off is the 11.2 ounces, one night I drank 6 in about an hour when I noticed the smaller capacity bottle. Itís great though that there is finally a real product called a íwidgetí! I just love saying íRocket Widgetí!

I found a place that serves this up PERFECTLY. Itís called Peteís Pizza in Sacramento on íJí street. They work with the distributor to follow all the unique guidelines for the íperfect pint/pourí. Creamy, Big head, Burnt-Chocolate, and coffee flavors add immensly to the enjoyment of this great brew! Iíve had this on tap in a lot of different pubs but youíll notice when you come across a pub that serves it up correctly. Then, you are in for a treat. Enjoy!

This has to be one of my favorite beers. Its got great flavor, and so thick. I would take this over most every beer.

The beer that made me decide to quit drinking cheap beer. Make sure you get a glass and do it up proper though.

I didnít care for the opening on the can. It was a little flat, but it had a nice texture, and a very strong flavor. Iíve only had this once, so before I can say more Iíll have to give it another go.

Great looking beer, great head, good flavor. Best part about it is you can get it almost everywhere. Bad part is few sellers can pour a decent pint. Good beer if served correctly.
