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.

ronjohn, you need to get yourself to dublin one day and enjoy a fresh guinness. i've had it several billion times here in the states and was not enamored by it (not for lack of trying). but my first pint in dublin, across from st. stephens green in a pub called "the senate", was an eye opener. it was delicious. cool, light, and refreshing. not what people think of stoudts.

i think a perfect job for you would be a guinness tester. i've heard of these guys that go around cities, from irish pub to pub, with a kit that tests several factors of the guinness they serve.

Wow if I could score that job and my wife could get a job as the Ben and Jerry's taste tester then we would be two of the happiest people on the planet.

Have a friend who's homebrewed it. Nearly spot on, right down to the water chemistry and the Nitrogen carbonation. He won't give me the recipe!!

And you call this person a friend?
I'd love to try some, (for medicinal purposes only of couse).

Next time you make it Knoxville, TN, look me up and we'll crack a bottle or two. I usually try to keep some around, as well as some Stone Smoked Porter.

This thread is about liking Beer, not . This is exactly the same as the other thread you posted, and thanks but I already know how to make beer.


And it's "You" not "U". No homebrewer talks or spells like that.

I usually drink Vodka Tonics. I have a couple beers a week. Usually Becks, Sam Adams, Heineken or Corona (now that it's hot out). There was a Budweiser left after a party a few months ago....I spit it out. It's funny how your taste buds change.

He said "Made" beer.

We "looked" at the link, now what? Do we click on it?
