Yup, that's the extra stout.

I think that the Draught is better, not just because of the creamy-nitro head - its better because it has a sort of "sour" taste that the Extra Stout doesn't. The Extra Stout is nothing special at all, I could make beer that good.

I voted draught. And I really hope you aren't talking about out of a can or bottle because both of those are nasty IMO. It just doesn't work for me.

A good pour of Guinness is a great beer IMO. Light, flavorful, great mouthfeel, dry finish. It is a fantastic drink. Extra stout and extra foreign stout have more to them but so do a lot of other beers. Guinness draught is much more unique than the extra stout. The foreign export is special, but list the pubs you've seen it in..... I didn't think so.

Draught off the tap not in bottles... but remember a good Irish Car Bomb uses the bombers so if you mix stout with some irish cream and some fine scotch my vote would change

I want to know which is better and why.
Well that's like asking which is better, the left one or the right one?

They're both my favorite commercial beers, for different reasons. Extra Stout was the first beer I ever got drunk on, and was all that was available for a while. Lots and lots of very fond memories for me in every bottle. Draught though is liquid velvet.

The Extra Stout. It has more flavor and I find it has that twang at the end that guinness is known for.

I agree that the Forgein Extra Stout is the best of the bunch. In fact it's the best stout I've ever had. Too bad they don't import it to the US.

I haven't had either enough to decide, and I'm not sure I've ever had Extra Stout.

I do like to collect whichever one has the plastic labels. They peel right off and have a sexay shape! Good for refilling with my homebrew!

First off...what bar is that?? I like the uniform!!!

I like the Draught better...but you gotta get it fresh!

The advice to those visiting Ireland is to buy the same Irish Stout the locals drink. That way, for sure you know it's fresh!! If you buy the stuff nobody else drinks...then there is a likely chance you'll be buying some stale beer.

---------

It's amazing how many Guinness choice's there are. I dropped into an O'Neils pub in London and ordered a Guinness...the bartender asked, "Will that be Regular, Red or Extra Cold?" They have Guinness Red over there...it's got more Toasted Barley instead of as much Roasted Barley... Supposed to win over the ladies. I like the regular stuff best myself.
