Your have to like irish/british stout to enjoy guinness! Because guinness is the king of all stouts. And it brings the genuine irish pub feeling directly to your home!! That dark colour, the golden Georg and the burnt flavour - splendid.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2008 THE Beer. Pitch black, browny head - very big & bubbly, lasts for a long time. The taste is unbeatable, what can I add here, everyone knows it. Feels great on the palate, very bitter aftertaste. Awesome, legendary stout. Almost Godlike.

#7 Unser Irish Pub hat es mittlerweile "Straight from the Cask" und es ist einfach Łberragend!! Diese sšmige Bitterkeit verbunden mit dieser rŲstigen Malzigkeit ist unerreicht! Mittlerweile gibt es diese gehaltvolle Variante leider nicht mehr, weil nur noch die irische Version am Hahn hšngt, schade.

500 ml bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with a high brown head. Malty honey aroma. Wonderful full-bodied roasty malt taste with coffee and honey notes. Pleasant bitter roasty palate.

Although itís the Original, i find it second fiddle to the extra stout only, but here is the review for the Titan that would become legend. On itís nose it deliverís a roaring scent of Burnít Caramelized Barley, Espresso, a Ton of Malt, Turmeric and roasted Coffee, deep and Tantalizing to the senses. It Pours a very dark Brown, not as Black as Draught, or as smooth and elegant, a more Hazy, rugged, rough look, but still with itís ruby glow, and distinctive short, brown head that quickly dissipates. In the mouth it feelís heavy as it gets, not the smooth ride you get from Draught, itís gritty, gravy like substance thick, with a warm, buzzing sensation super full and very very malty. The Taste is Sublime in itís harsh, bitter burnít barelyís, roasted malts and unforgiving Iron notes, along with a strong presence of Liquorice, and ginger tones. Itís finish is another bout of exquisite bitterness, and extra coal cindered burnít flavours, make this a highly drinkable and challenging brew!

slightly more strong than draft, and I think that worse than it, but still a great beer.

A smooth taste and dark color with a wonderful long feeling of Ireland and especially from Navan. This is my favorit stout.

Gorgeous jet black stout with a creamy foam, but slightly weaker than the can with nitrogen cartridge.
