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.

Dark Black Color with Med Thick Head. The Aroma is hoppy with some smokeyness. the flavor has a smokey flavor with hints of chocolate. To me not all that great. I expected something much better.

I have to credit this beer with turning me into a beer lover. Itís a toss up between this and the draft as to which I like better, but this is a little thicker, and more robust than the draft. A little bitter, with a nice nutty flavor. Definitely some chocolate and coffee flavors. Great color. My canít go wrong standard

Itís a beautiful beer. The pour is awesome to watch, the taste is a bit bitter but hey it is stout. The flavour is superior to most other stouts. The only one that was better was a stout I had in northern England one night...I worked late that night and sadly i canít remember the name...tragic.

About the same as Guinness draught but has a deeper roasted flavour and a bit more bitterness to it.
