Almost a Guinness, but not quite.

This is most likely my favorite beer. Nice and thick, dense flavour. Coffee/choclaty taste with a great head, and a wonderful balance of bitterness.

Not my favorite. Very thin feel in the mouth. Taste is very watery with not much depth.

Why bother?

Great beer. Cool ’bottle-with-a-widget’. Not quite as satisfying as Guinness

Would beat Guiness any day (and is usually cheaper).

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 7, 2001
Not much malt character, and this was disappointing. Also missing an appropriate aroma even as it warms. Wet on the tongue, a lighter body than expected.

Light and smooth, very subtle. Subdued chocolate and maple undertones. Very light mouthfeel.

I actually kind of liked this one. I thought it was better than guiness. Good flavor and good body.
