The only way to make Guinness better was to make it more portable, no glasses needed here and they did an awesome job!!!!

UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 excellent think creamy body with delicious think head that last for the first few sips, even better on tap and in a black tan

I didnít like it at first, but it has become one of my favorite beers. It need to be on tap, or else it can taste like motor oil.

Guinness is the greatest beer - ever. I routinely drink many, many pints of this. Rich, creamy slight chocolate taste. No aftertaste. Beautifully bitter and dark with full-bodied head. Guinness, God and Family are the most important things in my life. If you canít get it on tap , the pub draught cans are the best alternative. The draught bottles are too watery and the extra stout bottles have a burnt aftertaste. Guinness is good for you!

The standard by which all stouts should be measured. Itís solid, life-affirming, hearty -- the mothersí milk of stout.
