The kind of beer you can really sink your teeth into. It makes me understand what Homer means when he says, 'Mmmmmm....Beer.'

Mmmmmmmm.....I love this beer. Tasty anytime, especially in the icy Wisconsin winter. Murphy's Irish Stout is a very strong contender here as well.

I found this beer to be watery & flat. To be sure that I just didn't have a bad six pack, I tried it @ other people's houses fm 6'ers they bought. Every time, flat & watery. I was expecting more.

Overrated to the extreme. It's very rare I ran into a stout with no body to speak of, nor much of a taste. My recommendation: give this one a skip if you want a good stout with some BODY to it!

THE standard for Irish stouts. Creamy, frothy head, with a dry, thick body. Hint of carmel, with a roasted slightly burnt hoppiness in the after-taste. A solid staple stout of in and out of irish bars.

First impression was Valvoline mixed with chocolate. Bitter with somewhat weak flavour underneath. Holds together quite well, and is refreshing. Not bad, but maybe overrated.
