First impression was Valvoline mixed with chocolate. Bitter with somewhat weak flavour underneath. Holds together quite well, and is refreshing. Not bad, but maybe overrated.

I didn’t like Guinness when I first tried it many years ago, but it is an acquired taste that grows on you. Much imitated and never equalled. Excellent head, dark, creamy, nutty taste, thick consistency.

This is really good stuff. "liquid bread" is how I've heard it described. Granted, in the bottle, it can't be that thick, but it's still good. Tastes like a cold coffee. For someone who can't get the original, this is still pretty good.

This wonderful swamp water has delighted me for over 15 years and one of my favorites and I never found a frog in any bottle

Creamy head, toasted malt flavor and a slightly bitter finish. The best of the Irish stouts, but not as good served icy cold as in America. Drink at 45-50 degrees fahrenheit and maybe slide down a few oysters while you’re at it. For something a bit smoother, try a Murphy’s. Especially when you are in County Cork.
