Better than the original Guinness, but I have the same complaint about it looking way better than it tastes.

What hasn't been said??? Isn't this the gateway beer for many beer snobs? My take on this classic alternate to adjunct lagers is that it beats the pants off of Bud and Coors, but takes a back seat to nearly every stout from every micro brewery out there. The look is obviously unmatched. A jet black body with the "everlasting gobstopper" of ale froth. Smell is hard to find, and taste is smooth, yet slightly metallic for my tastes. If all you know is American Corn Beer do yourself a favor and try this. Otherwise move on and find the "foreign" variety of their stout. Now that's a world class beer.

Classic and full bodied stout with one going a long way. This beer has an interesting sourness to it that I later found out is actually soured beer added to the finished product. Wonderful moderately roasted stout.
