This is the absolute bestest beer ever. So pure. So divine. The absolute staple, the fundemental anchor. How does one propose to critique this beer? It's been around before my mom had teats.

If you don't know how it pours or tastes, delivers or smells, then why are you looking here for validation. You could have one. And it should be now!
Seriously, you need help if you haven't understood the practicality of a well-defined, yet overly-marketed (and understandingly so) jem.

This is the stout of all stouts, not too harsh, not to mild. Just right. Started drinking it when in Sweden for School. My irish classmates convinced me to try it. after 3 days I was hooked, now I can not go to any bar with out ordering it. Now i go to all the Guinness Nights at our local bars. yes, i am addicated and loving it.

considering i've drank AALs and everything else, and every other beer tastes horrible to me i like this one. I only like stouts. I'm not good at reviewing beer. i usually review bourbon and spirits. Beer is not something i keep around the house. I don't like it. But this one i like.
