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.

Had any Guinness there might be on tap while on honeymoon with my wife in Ireland. It's pretty good to start with, but if you've ever had it in its home country, at the beginning of the biggest adventure in your life, with the love of your life, in a tiny pub, with a two minute pour and fresh salmon supper- you'd probably give it a five, too.

This is a very fantastic dark and hearty beer to savor. Very rich stout that flushes the mouth with a lovely heavy taste and smells almost like leather. Feels very firmly smooth and goes down really well.

Nice foreign beer to indulge in casually for sure.

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.
