Black color; White head, gee f-ing surprise!; No aroma. BLAND, even blander then Guinness. They must have worked really hard to get a beer this bland. The worst stout that has ever passed my lips!

UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 I always liked this beer but am re-rating this because I don't think it deserves a 4.8. Very similar to Guinness or Murphy's but maybe the most bitter of the three.

The best of the Irish stouts. Better than Guinness, but it doesnt get as much play. Its hard to find, since most pubs will favor guinness over it, but if you can find it, drink the keg dry.

This is one of my favorite Irish stouts. It is much better in Ireland though.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2002
Pretty good, but not as good as Boddingtons. Very Guinness-like, but not the same flavor. Overall, a good buy.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2002
Ehh, not bad but I prefer Murphys Irish Stout. Not too bad if you like cream.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2002
A very bland Stout. Typical stout/dark color. Not anywhere near as good as Guinness, but not bad either. I guess Id rather have a micro-brew stout.

Sigmund (7315) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 11, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 Smoother than Guinness, very drinkable. A stout recommended for beginners. Rerate: ...which doesnt in any way imply that Beamish hasnt a lot to offer the experienced stout drinker as well. Aroma is better than Guinness, and the flavour is very nice too. I simply suggested that the prejudiced anti-stout drinker might find out that he/she actually likes it.
