Big, light brown ice cream like head. Some lace around the top. Aroma is much maltier than the draught. Reminds me of a malting floor in a whiskey distillery - a good memory. Nice roasted flavour, a bit of a coffee in the finish. A good start to friday evening.

This isnít bad, but a bit bland. There are some hints of roasted barley, coffee, and perhaps a bit of chocolate. Not too extra stouty, but not bad.

People! this is not the same as the guinness one would usually find at a pub on draft... of course, you already knew that didnít you... i love this beer, if only because i began to love the extra stout before i had the draft version... roasted and malty as all hell, nice dry finish... the coffee of beers

I love this stout. I find it much better than the draft and nitro cans/bottles. It just has more flavor. Great burnt bitterness that I love. Probably my favorite stout, not including the strong Imperial stouts.

pitch black with good head but not as creamy as in the can, more robust than the cans too, itís just richer.
Canít drink too many of these, they fill ya up, but taste better than about any other beers at the grocery store.
Earlier Rating: 5/1/2002 Total Score: 4.2
roasted hazelnutty aroma, thickest mouthfeel of any beer in the world, a bitter but pleasant balance of roasted malt and hops, overall a charming beer.
Mainly a relaxation beer, I prefer the draught however.

You canít go wrong with Guinness but the flavor seems to be getting weaker as the years go by.
