Everyone knows Guinness, so I post this simply for point of reference. Not at all complex, Guinness is a bitter watery tar with nice mouthfeel. Itís too one note and way too filling to be my everyday beer though. Bitter without being hoppy and malty without being sweet. In other words flavorful without having much taste.

I donít think it is as good as the draught can, but is still a very good beer.

This beer is a meal. It is very filling and fairly tasty. It is a little bitter, but it is an enjoyable bitterness. The quinessential Irish stout.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2002
*sigh* Pours very small head with a bit of fine lace. Very thin bodied with little flavor to speak of.

Aggie80 (790) - Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2009 Heavy carbonation. Good head that doesnít last, no lacing. Totally opaque, dark and black. Some bitter aftertaste with a heavy texture. Good with strong foods, but not something I will drink on a regular basis. Note: I bought this in the US.

This is the one I compare all other to! Best on draft, the bottles are the next best thing!

Very good beer with lots of bitterness to bite you at the end. Pretty thick stuff.
