I know this is unlikely but have any of you guys ever tasted this quality stout ? 

If so what did you think ?

I tried it in a pub that had it on tap...amazing stuff

Not sure about it being like double maxim mate, is that stuff popular? I know Guinnes is also available in cans and bottles too. I even spotted some oul boy drinking it with a whisky chaser...

Can't beat a good pint of Guinness. Drank Beamish for about three years and thought it was good untill I went into a pub one day with no Beamish and ordered a Guinness and it was only savage. No going back now. Hate Diageo as a company though.
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

Don't mind a few pints of plain but if I'm on a session or anything more than 10 pints then I have to stick to Lager as the black stuff does be too heavy

Ingredients for the perfect storm of an explosive Donal Trump:

- Minimum 8 pints of Guinness
- Load of vodka red bull in the club
- Late night spicy curry
- A berocca in the morning
- some coffee to stave off the hangover
- An apple and some mandarins for energy
- Loads of water for hydration
- A Sinnotts carvery with all the trimmings. 

Rush back to the office with the buttocks clenched, boxers soaked with sweat, never risking even a tiny fart and then unleash a torrent of hellish fury into the jax. Amazing how high you can pebble dash the interior if you really want it go for it.

Quite bland as stouts go, O'Hara's or Porterhouse do a much better (and Irish owned) stout.

It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

I try to buy Irish, so Engish beers like Guinness are down my list. But it can be quite good and they have tapped the tourist market very well. Imagine going to Scotlandand queuing at the bourbon museum. Hats off.
