"although the same traditional style, this one is smoother and has a slightly more pronounced flavor than Guinness, and therefore is a more enjoyable beer."

I am really missing my Beamish. I tried it while visiting Ireland and cant find it anywhere near me at home. I really would like to be able to have this again.

Arrachtas (12) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
My favourite beer, so I will note my bias in advance. Without doubt, the finest example of the Irish dry stout style that is produced by a major brewery. In comparison to the obvious competition from Guinness, Beamish has always struck me as a less rushed version of the style; the aroma is stronger, particularly with regards to the roasted malt, the palate is certainly more full bodied, and the taste more complex, as not only the traditional coffee notes are present, but a much larger presence of dark chocolate and roasted barley. Dry stout is a very blunt style, but I do not think that anyone does a finer job (Murphys is a close second!).

Cunningham (7228) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Dark brownish colour with a creamy light beige head. Coffee and light roasted malt aroma. Feels like you are drinking a big coffee :-) Also a bit bready and some sweet chocolate flavour.

Black appearance with thick head. Roasted aromas with caramel, similar to Guinness, but slightly more coarse and bitter. Appealing difference.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
This Irish Stout is as creamy as it should be but lacks the lingering flavour of others.

rgf001 (323) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Roasted malt aroma. Nitrogen tan head and black color. Creamy, toast, nuts, roasty, chocolate, bread, cereal flavors. Full palate. Dry finish. Great beer.
