What can I say that hasn't been said a million times over by devoted Guinness fans? We all know what this beer looks, smells and tastes like. This is one of the beers that got me into drinking good beer, which counts for a lot in my book.

Simply put, Guinness Extra Stout is an affordable, tasty, and classic dry stout. Far superior to Guinness Draught; Extra Stout has a richer, thicker taste.
This is a great introduction to the stout / porter style and an old standby for me. Are there better stouts out there? Sure. Are there ones that are as accessible and can be had from Wal-mart? Not that I know of.
