This Beer has got to the finest ever brewed. Some say its an aquired taste, the more you drink of it. Guinness also doesnt travel well so you should go to Ireland to try it. And dont go near the bottles....yeuch...

Poor Oakes is a deluded Canuck To think nitrogen beers are just muck May he someday be blessed At an Irish beer fest With a well needed Guinness-lass fuck! She’ll fill him with Guinness, He’ll fill her with Oakes And the two will reach ecstatic heights ’I’m coming to find this Guiness is good!’ Cries Oakes, cries she: ’You’re coming, all right!’

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

Being Irish means I get to drink the best possible pints of this stuff in my local. Tried it in the US a number of times and it is nowhere near as good as in Ireland
