COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Too bitter for me. I can understand how some people like it, but its rough on the palate and too thick.

A classic, I really like this from the bottle. Shared a 22 yesterday, we both enjoyed this one. A simple classic, not the best, but a classic nonetheless.

Almost black, thin tan head and lace. Nose of mild coffee and chocolate. Fairly smooth, kind of a thinnish body and palate. Some decent coffee flavors and bitterness, moderately dry and thats about it...average ass stout.

Good, but not as good as can or even close to draught (especially in Dublin). In fact, I donít think this much resembles Guinness. Still, a good beer for an international brewery.

I asked for a Guinness in a bar and was given this instead of a pint of draught. This doesnít even compare. It has a nice color though and is an average stout.

It much more bitter than regular Guinness. I donít believe itís tastier than Guinness Draught.

When the guinness was brewed in Ireland it had a very good deep ryeish flavor that I liked a lot. Now it is brewed up in Canada and it is so-so. Is it the Water? It just isnít the same taste.

This is the big brother to regular Guinness. Nice roasted malt taste and very smooth. I believe this stuff is bottled in Canada.

I found chunknuts comments to be very insightful. I have had a similiar experience. As I was enjoying many delicious keystones a buddy of mine, who is not real bright, said to me lets pay more money and get guiness. I said why would I do that, but he bought the guiness and it had a bad taste. I said to him why would you pay more when you dont have to. The moral is this beer is too expensive and not delicious enough

This beer is terrible. I am Irish and i am disgusted w/Ireland on this concoction. the other night i was drinkin quite possibly the best beer ever(Keystone Premium). I had about a 12er in me u know just barely buzzin and I had a guinness extra stout. As soon as I put it in my mouth I spit it out, It was horrible I do recommend this to coffee drinkers. If u like drinkin coffe to get drunk then u will enjoy this beer(I dont even consider it a beer).
