Default Guinness, yechhhhhh!!!!

Wife bought some for dinner tonight. I thought the stuff tasted absolutely repulsive. My homebrew and BMC taste much better than that stuff.

BMC tastes much better? Please....

Suit yourself but try a well-poured pint on tap before you write it off.

Nothing wrong with a nice pint of Guinness. I could drink it all night long.

I guess if you're not a stout fan you would have that reaction.

My Irish Stout is Good. After 6 (as today) it's Great......

I still love Guinness

I'm all about pride in my brew but come on I can't top Guinness well at least not yet. I need Nitrogen in order to do it right.

Drink BMC all the BMC you want! I'd rather have the Guiness! Not my favorite beer in the world, but definately a classic and a great example of a Dry Stout.

This statement is just WRONG!! on so many levels. I understand that not everyone is a stout fan, IIPA fan...etc, but Guinness is hardly swill.

Guinness is less "stout" than Budweiser.

Guinness abv 4.0 cal 123
Bud abv.4.3 cal 143

Well, maybe I should have left the BMC part out. The Guinness tasted real "chemically". Kind of like paint thinner smells. Maybe we got a bad batch?

I'm not a huge fan of Guinness. I had some Guinness 250 that was rock solid though. I think it gets too much hype. Surely it is better than any BMC.
