    So these are the most common Guinness sold in the USA. I know in other countries they have their own variants and you can chime in on those if you had them.

    So this is the most common one. Sold in bottles and nitro cans at 4.2% ABV. Kinda watery and thin IMO but you can pound more of them.

    The Extra Stout is sold in bottles and cans as well and clocks in at 6% ABV. Its a thicker, fuller version of the Draught IMO.

    [​IMG]

    The Foreign Extra Stout is only sold in 4 packs and large bottles and clocks in at 7.5%. Its the highest rated of the 3 as you would expect and its got kind of a burnt, more roasted flavor IMO.


    So me personally, Ill go with the Extra Stout. The Draught is too watery and low ABV for me and the Foreign Extra Stout just isnt as smooth. Extra Stout fits the bill perfectly.

    Yeah I know Guinness in Ireland is probably different and I havent had it and were talking about US here but chime in if youve had it to compare.

    Always liked it on tap at the British Pubs around Los Angeles, never found a packaged version I cared for. Damnedest thing when I found little plastic balls in the cans of a six-pack of stout.

    I got drunk on Guinness one time and felt bloated the following day. Just give me a Heineken and I'm happy.

    You must mean the Draught. Try the other ones.
