Nice!

For some reason, I just don't like the Extra Stout...can't explain it.

I like the Extra Stout better... but I'm not a huge fan of the whole nitrogen / stout faucet thing.

The extra stout tastes like a reasonable stout. Guinness draught does not.


Oh yes, and Draught is drank by ladies with plastic boobies, plastic noses and Buddy Holly tattoos.

Guinness draught is watery and tasteless (even in Ireland) and the extra stout is a little better.

Now, the Foreign Extra Stout is something to get excited about!

Draught, it's easier to find at bars, and generally is the only stout at any bar.

That makes it better? By the same reasoning, Bud light is the best beer in America!

i like the guinness that comes in the 22 oz bombers. i think that's the extra. i will drink the draught off a tap, but don't care for the cans or bottles with the widgets in it.

the anniversary stout was too carbonated imo.

funny thing, most of the guinness we get here in ummerika is from soviet canukistan... i thought it had to have water from st. james's to be proper guinness.
