As a fan of good Stouts, Guinness tastes very thin, dry, and dull to me. If it was not for the "beer gas" (a gas blend that contains nitrogen) that they carbonate it with it would be flat out awful. I rank it as a bottom shelf stout. Very bottom shelf.
Left Hand Brewing's 'Nitro Milk Stout'
(in a can, whereby it gets nitrogen containing "beer gas" carbonated upon can opening*) is a much better example of a flavorful and widely commercially available Stout, but for me the Cadillac of the breed is Hoppin' Frog Brewery's 'B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher'
Stout (where BORIS = Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout). No need for the nitrogen trick whereby to make BORIS taste delicious.
There are also many good UK Stouts. And then there are the ones that I brew....
*I'm not sure if "beer gas" can be found in any bottled beer. Unless Left Hand figured out how to do it....
Update: Left Hand Brewing's 'Nitro Milk Stout' in bottles is advertised to be nitrogen 'beer gas' blend carbonated.
