Why did I even try to drink this out of the bottle. Why do they even bottle it this way. This is a beer that needs to come out of the can with the widget (if you must), or preferably on tap. LadyBeerLover (70) - Benton, Arkansas, USA - DEC 19, 2002

I used to say that I couldn’t stand Guinness. Then I was invited to a Guinness Event in downtown Chicago. That changed my mind. It was free beer and food along with info on Guinness. Granted its not a beer I am going to have one after the other at a bar, but is sure goes good with a good meal. Crafter99 (10) - USA - DEC 17, 2002

Great stuff if you like stout.

This comes across as lighter than I remember the old Extra Stout. Very enjoyable fruitiness over considerable dark malt heft. Good at parties. psychodrama311 (122) - petaluma, Nevada, USA - DEC 10, 2002

Not as strong as regular Guinness, definitely roasted but not "stout" like the name implies. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2002
More character than regular Guinness, but not an exceptional stout. Very roasty and creamy; unfortunately that is about all that can be said about this beer. Pretty monodimensional. It is not bitter at all, contrary to what the label may claim. DuffManOhYeah (133) - USA - DEC 5, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 I didn't used to like it, but I had a lot over the summer and I can't live without it anymore. I love the color and the puzzling consistency. It's thick, but almost watery when it goes down. Hints of bitter coffee. Really an excellent stout.
