Guinness Stout – A love betrayed – Beer Review

I have Guinness paraphernalia all over my house (and man cave).  I love the beer and the brand.  It was my gateway beer towards finding real beer – a stepping stone to craft beer.  I was therefore excited on a Friday afternoon to put a 6 pack of Guinness Stout in my shopping cart.  I was almost proud to have the brand sitting there.

I’ve enjoyed Guinness draught here in the states for years.  Sold in large cans, it is dry and refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day.  The Stout however is a different story.  From my youth  I fondly recall it was rich, dark and viscous.  I couldn’t wait to crack one open – this was going to be great.

I couldn’t finish the bottle.  It tasted metallic, astringent.  This was a horrible beer.  Did Guinness betray me?  Was I losing my love affair with all things European (note: this applies only to beer)?  Wait!  What was this written on the side of the bottle?  Canada?  Canada doesn’t make good beer and since when do they make my Guinness Stout?

Oh Canada

A buddy came over the next day and spotted the remaining Guinness Stout.  He got swindled the same way I did when I bought.  Before I could stop him, he had cracked it open.  His facial expression was enough to tell me he hated it too.  “Feel free to throw it down the drain” I told him.  I think he already was.
