The perfect beer. Guinness is the benchmark to rate all other beers against.

Hell yes. If you buy Guinness on tap, all the flavor is more pronounced. This is the best dry stout ever, I think. Appearance is so classic itís worth ten points. Watching the beer settle is an event in itself. I have to give it a 5, since this is such a classic.

Guinness, out of the tap at an Irish bar with a "clover" on the head, is the best.

If you get a bad pull it can be below average, but get a good one, and it will blow you away. The benchmark for stouts.

This is the Best looking Beer I have ever seen. Lovely Mixed Brown as poared seperating to a great Black Brew with a White Head. I love to poar this fast, just to watch it better. And the Taste, Beyond Belief. I Wish it was a bit cheaper, but still worth every penny of the price.
