The best stout. surprisingly drinkability one after the next pint. slight burnt nutty taste that is not overwelming. Perfect for Sunday football game watching.

Being from some Irish decent, I am just addicted to this stuff. One of my favorites to get from the tap. Friends dont understand why or how I like it, but they are Bush Lite fans. :(

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2008 This beer is responsible for me putting on three stones in weight when at university in the eighties. Bastard. Has an off-roasted tang to it with creamy licks. If all else fails at hotels, late bars and family parties, I’ll drink this. And smile. And drink better when I make it home.

black with hints of ruby around the edges nice tan head with good lasting lacing slight malt and chocolate. Was a little disappointed in this watery and not a lot of flavor and some bitterness at the end. If this was my first stout maybe I would think it is worth all the raving some give it

UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Nitro Draft "nellos". Looks black as night, and has a large thick nitro head. Aroma is of old bitter coffee (left over from the previous day, in a good way) and roast malt. Mmmm!!, Guinness. Body is creamy and full on the tongue but swallows thinner. Flavor is roasty, hints of bitter coffee, and a finishing aftertaste that makes Guinness the unique and enjoyable beverage it is.

Well, certainly not what I expected. Doesn't mean it was bad though. Nice bitter taste came through, despite the nitro bubble and nitro head. I had it first round, but decided to pass on the second. Decent, wouldn't refuse.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2004 I guess it can't be said enough. The standard in Stout. Good beer and enjoyed by most beer drinkers worldwide. Whatever.

This is one of my favorites. Great on tap or in the can. Not too potent, so you can usually enjoy many pints safely.

While not the bes stout out there this is the standard by which many are judged. Its a good beer and you can count on its quality when in an unknown pub.
