Not bad, but at about the same price for Guinness there’s no contest.

Very nice drink. I prefer it to draught guinness, as it is slightly sweeter.

Now then I say that this is a sweet and tto soft and soppy version of the Dark Stout. Stop the slurping of the malty mess that is the very heart of this OKish brew and go swallow a gallon of Guinness. It is not bad if the real brew isn’t available BUT if given a choice, men like the real deal. OK for the half pint lipstick and tight knicker elastic brigade but no use for a real ball swelling, gut filling, piss up. Get real GET GUINNESS. Tell them John and Grumbles sent you.

Choosing between this and Guinness is a coin toss. They’re not exactly the same, but close enough that I’d probably just alternate between the two. Nice texture, without being syrupy, same cocoa/coffee notes as Guiness, perhaps a bit milder. Some day I’ll have to try them back to back.

On tap. I expected something thicker, creamier, and more flavourful from the wonderful appearance and head. Nice and dry, but too watery. I’ll have to go against the status quo and vote this over Guiness. Both are too watery, but this isn’t as bad.

I enjoy this beer more than guiness, but still not a great great stout.

May have gotten a bad can. Very disappointed. Pales in comparison to Guiness. Lacking taste and body. My friends love this beer.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 This isn't as thick and creamy as a can of Guinnessbut it's still a fine, very available can of Irish tout!
