The Irish in me is crying over this thread.

Guinness Black Lager, on the other, is an absolute disgrace and what I thought this thread may have been about before reading through it.

Wow.... I hadn't heard about Guinness Black Lager before. Just did a Google search for it. Maybe BMCG isn't so far off after all...

I remember back in 06 when they started releasing all the special "Guinness Brewhouse Series" crap. None of it was particularly good, not that I find regular Guinness much better.

Anyone else have a pint of Toucan, North Star, or Brew 39?

Don't know if anyone here had the 250th Anniversary Guinness, but it was noteworthy

Bought a big bottle of Guinness -probably 22 oz- last week, specifically for cooking. Cooked with some, drank the rest. Tasted like Guinness always has to me.

As a side note, those are awesome to bottle homebrew in

doubt it, unless someone has it hidden behind something else on a shelf somewhere. it was a 2010 thing, definitely worth it, wish i had bought some more just to hang on to

I had some 250th anniversary Guinness on tap (at a place that can't pour properly). It was flipping delicious! Then again, I was already very drunk...

I think one of the main problems that occurs is that establishments don't clean their lines regularly. That makes a huge impact in drinking a proper pint.
