The caution on a can of Murphy's Stout...

You know, the one that reads, "Unchilled cans may overflow." Yeah, pay attention to that one.

If my beer reflexes weren't so good I'd have lost another keyboard...

Perhaps chilling it would have been a good idea......

But see, how chilled is chilled? For how I like my stout, it was chilled enough, but apparently not from the viewpoint of the widget.

If I remember correctly my last can of Guinness had instructions.... I really have no idea what to tell you.

What? You mean there are dumb a$$es who don't know how to drink beer.

Actually I've never tried Guinness, what's it like?

Accusing someone else of not knowing how to drink beer- and never having tried a Guinness? Draw your own conclusions.

you people need to get out more... there's much better beer out there than guinness. Granted, I'm lucky to have more micro-breweries here than banks and churches combined

I'm concerned.

Guinness definitely goes hand and hand with a shot of Jameson. Where is the Jameson? I know that coffee sometimes takes the precedence but Black and tan? Why not just pour some water in with Your Jameson...

Right lads!

Guinness is a stout as is Beamish and Murphys! A black and Tan is Guinness with cider (shandy to you) and Paddy is as good if not better than Jemmy! This is Dublin culture! :B

And whiskey is always served with a glass of water in Ireland!

guinness is ok...it's definately one of the better beers that you wont have trouble finding.

I think the temp for the can to not go into a full blown foamy mushroom cloud of brew is about 35-40f.

I was actually thinking of a Guinness/Harp black and tan to go with a shot of Redbreast... Were you thinking of an Irish Carbomb? (Shot glass full of whiskey dropped in with a beer, usually Jameson with Guinness or Harp, I think. Never had one... Maybe I'll try that later... Hmm, I guess I need to go get a shot glass. All I have are tumblers )

Don't worry, the 1.75 I bought on Friday will be mostly finished by the end of today.
