UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 The head is thick and sweet. The body is sort of bitter. This reminds me more of black coffee than beer. I'm going to try a pub draft to compare...the widget pour from the can is pretty cool. *update: had Guiness on tap. Definitely a good stout. Even better on St. Patrick's day*

Excellent stuff, can be savored or downed like water. Second only to the Cadillac Mountain as far as stouts go.

Beer??? My ass, I don't know how to call this shit but it sure ain't beer. When I first tried this one it could just as simply be Irish coffee to me, or beer with cola and water but surely no beer. I feel sorry for all those Irish people when they get this in every bar and club. Altough it looks like I'm about the only with this opinion. I could only find 2 other ratings below 3. So no more Guinness for me.

Great appearance when it's first poured. Very smooth on the palate, but I don't like the nitrogenated. It tastes a little flat. Great head though. Good flavor but I slightly prefer the Extra Stout.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 This one I had at Mulligan's was really not up to my normal guinness standards, i was really watered down. As G Fox, or Greg F, after you've had the irish version the american can't stack it up. I agree, although i haven't had the irish version, the belgian version was so much better then the american. Even the contract brewed canadian guiness is superior.

By far one of my favorite experiences since joining the rest of you on this rock called Earth. A damn good beer. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Smooth, rich, creamy, thick, roasty, and a head you can almost balance a dime on. (I tried, and I swear it paused for a moment or two before sinking through.) Try writing your initials in the head, I'll bet they're still there when you finish your beer!

Ptor says that often people prefer coffee and dont prefer stouts.....I on the other hand approve of both coffee and stouts.

The nitrogen pour is nice. Very similar to a draught pull. Creamy and silky smooth with a off-white durable head. Not as tasty however as the real thing off the tap. Seems a bit watery, lighter in flavor. Needs another shot of roasted barley or somethig.
