Better than Irish Guiness is Nigerian Guiness, but better than either is Gambian Guiness.

I also prefer dark s and give the thumbs up to Innis & Gunn rum cask, don't forget Marstons oyster stout, also worthy of a mention are

South Africa: Castle stout

Cambodia: Black Panther stout

Vietnam: Vietnamese Black

Germany: dunkel weisss

Malaysia: The Guinness was good but did give a bad hangover even when drunk in moderation

Hawaii: Kona brewery Pipeline porter

Nice beer wot I remember trying.


Antarctica and Brahma, Brazil

Hinano, Tahiti

St George, Ethiopia

A nice touch in some Kenyan places is being asked, "Warm or cold?" when ordering a Tusker. A hangover from Brit colonial times, and is proof positive there was a time when we liked warm . (I don't much like cold Guinness, warm's much better).

Taybeh, Palestine (from a small Christian town, but export version is from Belgium). Available in London once but I can't find it now.

Two more dark s from Mexico - Potro (like English stout) and Caballero Aguila (porter). I think they may put mole con chocolate in them like a lot of their cooking.

and this one from Bulgaria that I don't know how to write on this keyboard.

Back in UK:
Discovery ale, Dundee (Not the Fullers of the same name).

Fickleshole ale, Fickleshole (But from Reigate)

London Pride

BSA and TEA from Hogs Back Brewery

Shere Drop, Shere.

Mean Time, a dark London Stout,

and the classic Worthington White Shield

.....Brilliant thread!

Research is still ongoing but so far above and beyond all others are any of the s from Cerna Hora in the Czech Republic. Presently doing extensive testing in the north of South America but early indications point to Cerna Hora maintaining its lead.

So many s, so little time, still, mustn't grumble. Is this sort of scientific research for the good of mankind tax deductible?
