I grabbed an 8 pack of Guinness at the store today. Seems so much lighter in flavor than it used to. Maybe it's just me

Its been my go-to for a while. I drank the Nitro-cans for a while then realized they charged more for them. The bottle also taste better. I’ve drank Guinness in Ireland and Scotland. And man thats where I discovered it. It is life changing. I will go back for sure.

I think it's kind of like my tobacco preference... It's on the stronger side nowadays with barrel aged stouts and higher abv

The last time I went on a stout and porter kick they averaged 13-17%abv lol. Even the foreign extra is light in comparison

Damn thats absurd for a beer. For a while I drank Victory Golden Monkey. My tolerance went up so high I had to stop. It was 9.5%. I thought we were talking flavor, your talking abv. Gunniess is a slice of bread. Foreign Extra is tbe whole loaf to me.

They had both flavor and body. Stuff like ballast point victory at sea ( I think 10%) and the barrel aged version (13%) I guess I should also point out that Evan Williams is the only whiskey I drink on the regular that's under 100 proof. All of my tastes run to the more potent side but Evan has enough flavor and body to be a wonderful daily for an animal like myself

Guinness and Newcastle Brown Ale. Coaster from the Phantom.

I need more Guinness. Hopefully all the posers didn’t buy it all up for the holiday yet.
