I wouldn't call Guinness *zesty,* though. When I think something "zesty" I think something like Stone's Arrogant Bastard, Double Bastard or Ruination. Guinness isn't zesty so much as it is thick and smooth.

True I guess Guiness does not hit the zesty mark, but it sure does hit the full bodied one as well as something that will keep you interested. Hey 2 out of 3 aint bad

Hmm I wonder which beer I am thinking of with the indent on the bottom. Everyone will just have to look at the bottom of every bottle they get until we find it

Just a FYI...Red Stripe is $7.89/6 at a local establishment near me. For a case of this stuff I can buy a nice bourbon...Much better value for my money I garontee

I do like a good beer. Usually a red ale or else something
on the darker side. Oregon has a lot of Microbrews also,
its fun trying different brands. I think the latest one I
tried was Drop Top, it was pretty good. Along with
Guinness, I also liked Smithwicks. Hot day, cold beer, uummm good!

Phinz!!!! You wound me deeply my friend!! Guiness thick and smooth??? A horrible stereotype! By virtue of it's finishing gravity (Actually it's starting gravity as well) Guiness is one of the lighter beers on the market! (And also why it floats on the top of a black and tan)
I would describe it as roasty with just a slight hint of a tartness to it, but not thick. Agreed it is a very smooth beer.

Now a Bell's Expedition Stout, that's a quality motor oil!

Thick, as in coats the tongue like a winter overcoat.

Not nearly as thick as Stone Russian Imperial Stout, which literally pours like motor oil.

Very well, carry on then.

(I've yet to have a chance to sample the stone RIS, but I'm sure it's quite good).

I don't. I think it tastes terrible. I'll drink ginger ale instead. Ginger ale is sweet and delicious to me.
