I specifically signed up in order to refute a few reviews that literally made me go "WHAAA?!?!", in particular, the one that said "I have no idea why this has survived since 1759". Ok. This really got my blood boiling. Here's a little background. I hate just about every other guinness, most especially the DRAUGHT can with that stupid rocket .. thing. It tastes awful, completely flat. But THIS?!? This is the epitome of stout. The flavor is so deep, so rich, I TINGLE when I drink it. It's like suckling from the teat of a magical buxom beer fairy. There are so many notes: chocolate, coffee, perhaps some wood barrel flavor (real or simulated who knows), that I can not help but relish every sip. It is so full bodied that I have the same reaction to it as a fat booty chick. DAYYYUMM! It so perfectly dark and enjoyable. To those who rated this below an A: WTF are you thinking. Go drink your bud ICE and whatever it is YOU think is awesome. For people like me, who enjoy a thick, brooding, immaculately complex flavor profile with a satisfying aftertaste, this is THE BEER. End of story. Yes, it's too expensive, yes, it will make you fat as hell. But it's worth it. EVERY LAST DROP. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours pitch black with a small of white head that disappears very quickly. Smells of raisins with very slight grape and coffee. Tastes of grapes with a bit of coffee, a bit of a different combination. Beer is light bodied and heavily carbonated, good finish. Overall an above average beer.
