    I've been drinking the stuff since I was a mere child sitting on father's knee.
    My vote: Tasty.

    Well, maybe some fruits and veggies, meat protein and other various vitamins and minerals from other sorts of foods..... but other than that, you've got a great point!

But you know, I'm from central Europe, we have our own beer culture here, so maybe it's only a thing of custom..

    So, whether it is Guiness or something different.. cheers

    Don't forget to answer in poll

    Guinness poured from a tap in a bar in Ireland is tastier than Guinness drunk out of the bottle in the US.

    (although I prefer Harp, and my favorite dark beer is still Murphy's Stout.)

    But how does it compare to Guinnes from a tap in the US?

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone have a bottle of Guinness before. Can, yeah, coz it has that thingamajig.

    Oh, tap Guinness is better than bottled any day! It's just that you miss the ambiance, even if you're in an "Irish Pub" kind of bar. Basically, I wanna go back to Ireland, but it's too expensive right now.

    I've never understood nor agreed with this assertion. On a purely caloric note, Guinness draft nearly matches any macro-brewery's 'light' beers. On a purely stylistic note, both Guinness draft & Guinness Extra Stout (Original) are Irish Dry stouts:

    "One of the most common stouts, Dry Irish Stout tend to have light-ish bodies to keep them on the highly drinkable side. They're usually a lower carbonation brew and served on a nitro system for that creamy, masking effect. Bitterness comes from both roasted barley and a generous dose of hops, though the roasted character will be more noticeable. Examples of the style are, of course, the big three, Murphy's, Beamish, and Guinness, however there are many American brewed Dry Stouts that are comparable, if not better." - Beeradvocate

    Conclusion: Guinness draft & Guinness extra stout are hardly meal worthy compared to other available stouts.

    Well, I would drink Guinness if I went into a bar which had otherwise nothing on draught but a selection of nasty cheap (tasting) mass-produced lagers and beers (an all-too familiar experience, unfortunately). Otherwise it's so insipid for a stout that I don't find it really worth the money or bother, as there are so many better and fuller flavoured beers in that kind of strong, dark style around when one is actually given that choice, including all the other stouts I have tried. I think the major point in Guinness's favour is that it is pretty dammned widely available, even internationally, and is a safe choice when you can be fairly sure that the only other options are actually insipid/nasty.

    By the way, I have not the faintest idea of why anyone would want to drink the stuff chilled to death as seems to be so popular at present. What distinctive flavour Guinness can actually be said to have is largely destroyed by cooling it to something appoaching the temperature of the Antarctic pack ice - if you are going to insist on drinking it like that I would have thought any insipid chilled lager would serve you just as well, and probably leave less of a hole in you pocket...
