On draught at The Creamery Bar. Dense nitro foam on a deep mahogany body. Not as much chocolate as a Guinness but extremely smooth and creamy. Thank you sir, may I have another? lello4ever (1063) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Nera con il tipico dito di schiuma beige compatto. Una signora stout, ovviamente acquosa, amara e per nulla frizzante, ma con un gusto più deciso rispetto ad altre stout come la guinness. Le birre inglesi come queste non sono il mio forte, però nel suo genere è buona. Baramba (1038) - ITALY - FEB 9, 2015

"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 can’t 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 (Murphy’s is a close second!). Cunningham (8069) - 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.rok1024 (1272) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - SEP 4, 2014

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