Beamish Stout cans are also lovely but I'd recommend O Hara's Leann Folláin or their regular stout if you like the taste of beer.
I love the stout bottles admittedly. you get funny stares off younger folk and derision for wanting it out of the fridge from the older ones.

I had Beamish lately and I didn't absolutely love it but felt it was a finer tipple. It has a distinct coffee flavour.

An acquired taste that will forge an acquired character. A bit like life really..

for life is full of the black stuff which we must put ourselves through. as opposed to the black stuff we must put through us... note the word must. Cos tastes kinda musty, dunnit

Ah Guinness. Saviour of the soul.

Absolutely nothing beats a good pint of Guinness after a hard week's work.

A pint of cider while sitting outside on a blistering sunny day comes close, but doesn't beat it.

It is an acquired taste. Like coffee or smoking. But once you acquire the taste you come to appreciate the subtleties in the flavour and the joy of a good pint. I can only drink beer from bottles now. A pint of beer tastes like fizzy piss.

Used to drink Guinness all the time before switching to beer since the stuff would leave me a walking chemical hazard the next morning.

Depending on where you get it, nothing beats a good thick, creamy Guinness to help start the weekend. Some places have no idea to serve Guinness and just fùck it into the pint and hand you piss.

Any pint of stout, be it Guinness, Murphy's or Beamish is still far superior to a gassy, bubble-filled pint of lager.

When things go wrong and will not come right,
Though you do the best you can,
When life looks black as the hour of night -
A pint of plain is your only man.

When money's tight and hard to get
And your horse has also ran,
When all you have is a heap of debt -
A pint of plain is your only man.

When health is bad and your heart feels strange,
And your face is pale and wan,
When doctors say you need a change,
A pint of plain is your only man.

When food is scarce and your larder bare
And no rashers grease your pan,
When hunger grows as your meals are rare -
A pint of plain is your only man.

In time of trouble and lousey strife,
You have still got a darlint plan
You still can turn to a brighter life -
A pint of plain is your only man.

My Grandfather judged a man on his stout drinking ability, if you weren't up to a Guinness session you were a little girl, haw haw haw.... and rightly so, all these little bollixes drinking their cider and pisswater don't know what real drinking is.

Guinness was a real drink in your Grandfathers time .....not any more and it's gone the way of many other ideas and morphed into an attitude of mind or lifestyle .
