Lack of head. This stout is a filler.

Hummm, Guinness is best had in a pint glass at a pub in Dublin. I like this stuff though, beats any american brew hands down

Draft is the only way to have this brew.

Hints of chocolate, black coffee, burnt toast. Nice and full, always a readily available favorite.

Very Smooth. Slightly bitter. Dark and creamy. A bit thin but still a good beer.

Not as good as the stuff out of the tap in London. Has a slightly better taste considering the bottle over the can.

A different animal than draft Guinness, but still very awe inspiring in itís own right. A few pint bottles of this and get the party started!

At first, I expected something alot like the regular stout, but itís not. Still, I loved its gentle smell and look. The taste is very good, fairly drinkable, but overall, doesnít have any really distinguishing characteristic.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Good drinking beer. A great bitterness. Smoky tones and astringent bite for a finish.
