    I have a Guinness that I am trying to date, but not having any luck. There are a bunch of letters and numbers on the bottom of the can, as well as something that looks like a time (00:47), but not having any luck finding a way to decode that into a meaningful date.

    Any help?

    Just drink it. If it takes like water it's fresh. If it tastes like bad water it's old. Then go pick up a bottle of foreign or extra stout.

    I wouldn't date a Guinness. I like beer, but not that much to ask one out on a date. ;)

    ...and not accurate since I dont see how the Extra Stout is better than the Draught. Foreign Extra is much better of course but to me the Draught and Extra Stout are the same.

    The only Guinness I really drink anymore is on tap, the fresher the better. This last St. Patty's Day, my local Irish bar, The Dubliner, must have had the freshest Guinness I've ever had. It was actually pretty good.
