Much sharper with a more bitter taste than the draught version.

This beer definately lives up to its billing! I waited so long to try it because people used words like bitter and sour to descibe it. The bitterness is a good kind of bitterness and to me the sour notes were just barely detectable. The best beer I have tried so far. Update: Iím not changing any scores, just wanted to point out that the Guinness Extra Stout I rated came from Ireland, not Canada.

I prefer this to the supposed ídraughtí version of Guinness. Its a shame that it is pastuerised nowdays. Try the Foreign Extra Stout for a REAL treat!

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 I too prefer the draught version (nitro can incl.)- but still the original is very, very good! Try it with bacon and eggs - makes you want to eat breakfast all day.

As a dry stout, itís not that bad. However in comparison to either the widget or draught varieties, it doesnít stack up. (6.0% abv in Australia by the way)

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 I prefer this to those nitro draught cans, has a pleasant almost coffee like taste and a dark distinctive colour.

Brewed under licence in Australia by the Evil Empire itself, C.U.B. Itís horrible. Fizzy, with a head full of big bubbles that disappear straight away (like coke). Syrupy and thin at the same time. Little flavour except chemicals and very stale sticky malt. Shameful.
