Not as good as Foreign, but always a good dependable staple. I'm glad pretty much everyone has this on tap in my area. Roasted malt, subtle chocolate, licorice, and a nice balanced bitter finish. Can drink this all night without any real 'repercussions'. Just make sure that its fresh when on-tap. Non-fresh Guinness is not pleasant when it returns the next morning. One of the best looking beers out there.
