Very, very tastey bev. The difference between the draft and can(not to mention the bottle)is like night and day. It's almost as if it were a completely different beer. Very complex body and the best head on any brew anywhere.

This definitely tastes the best in Ireland, and they pur it the way it should be. hard to come back to it in Tassie but i forced my way through the pints until the taste was again something like mothers milk.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2003 Guinness is proof that there is a God, and that the Irish are the most highly evolved civilization in the world.

If you have any sense, you won't stop drinking this stout until you like it. no . . . until you LOVE it.
