ok..i love guinness. and out of all the forms of guinness..besides draught...this is the best. cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 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. UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 4, 2002
I like the original bottled version, before nitro, a lot. I prefer the smoothness of the tap style, but this is great, especially when you've been working hard and want to sit down with a beer. It hits the spot for me.

Seems to be almost the same as the can. Still has a good full flavor.Scooby (50) - Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2002

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 swilled many pints before I realized that other breweries make stouts, too.

quite different from the canned draught version, actually. Fuller bodied - not as quaffable as draught. Some lingering, burnt bitterness that is not a bad thing at all.
