This stout is alright. If I wanted to go to the grocery store and buy a stout though, it would probably be either Guiness or Samuel Smith. This stuff is not bad, it has a slightly smokey taste, and it is good to mix in a glass with Guiness- A.K.A. Home & Aways

It might not be Guiness, but at almost a quarter the cost, I can sure drink it more often!

No comment ... this like the cousin Guinness is not a beer, it’s a philosophy. More drinkable than Guinness ...

Pours opaque with a dense head. The body starts a bit thin, and then finishes with slight bitter sharpness. A good beer and comparable to Guinness, but not as meaty as some other fine Stouts.

Very nice coffee aroma and flavor, smooth but almost no body, if it wasn’t so watery it would have rated much better

Dark, dark brown with a thick, firm head. Full bodied flavour with both coffee and chocolate in a wonderful mix.

My third favorite of the big three - a little harsher, less refined perhaps than Beamish in particular

I have been waiting a long time to try this one and I am glad to say that I was not dissapointed. Really creamy and smooth head and is just a little less bitter then Guinnes. Can’t wait to have another.

Black and beautiful, but with a rather weak head and not much aroma. Generally, this seems like a watered-down <a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= -- basically similar in every way, but thinner and weaker.

Very creamy head. Nice mild bitterness in flavour and aftertaste.
