Not as good as the extra stout -- it just doesnít have as much flavor to go with the bitterness.

Ok I hated this beer or coffee. This was a Starbuck product right? 1st the beer get more head then I do! That’s not right! 2nd it smells like day old coffee and that makes me want to puke. 3rd its black, by black I mean you can melt a black crayon and poor it an a glass and it looks the same. 4th and the big kicker Coors light yes the silver bullet has more alcohol in it then this burn residue. This was like eating coffee grounds and they charge an arm and a leg for it.

Beautiful head, supreme bitterness, lovely colour. It is a joy to consume and in my eyes would replace milk in my diet if I didnít have a job and family to care for :)

I was suprised at the popularity of this beer as it did not interest me at all

The most stunningly over-rated beer of all time. Horridly flat, bark-like flavor and heavy, dragging body are supposeded to make me wish I were Irish? Hell no, laddie; your native beer is crap, be it from the bottle, the can, or the tap. Any American stout puts this one to shame. Horrible.
