    There are two kinds of Guinness in shops. I love the draught but not the bottles of stout, find that quite bitter. Are you sure it's the kind you like?

    Top your cans up to pints with Baileys, dont imagine it will change the taste much and Baillys is 17% 100ml to 7 cans basically like having a bottle and a half of wine along with your cans.

    Guinness too weak? You're either an alcoholic or a 13 year old trying to show off...

    It's a medium strength drink, the majority of other beers in the pub will be 4% or less, so Guinness will be stronger.

    I've had the Foreign Extra before and it's horrible. Far too thick, and bittersweet. It's like someone put treacle in a standard Guinness!

    Guinness will soon offer a vegan-friendly version of its classic stout. The brewery is moving to replace a step in the clarification process done at its flagship St. James’s Gate Brewery that uses isinglass, a gelatin obtained from dried fish bladder, with an alternative method completely free of animal products.
    English newspaper The Times (paywall) first reported the story, citing a spokesperson from the brewery who said Guinness is in the process of building a new filtration plant that will not use isinglass. The change is scheduled to be completed in late 2016, according to CNBC, with vegan-friendly beers hitting shelves shortly thereafter.
    Guinness has been using isinglass at its Dublin brewery since the mid- to late-19th century, the Smithsonian Magazine reports. Barnivore, a website that catalogues vegan beers, wines, and liquors, shared snippets from its ongoing email correspondence with executives from the Irish brewery—in one company message from August 2014, a representative said, “Almost all of the Isinglass is removed from the product, but we can’t guarantee that 100% is removed.”
    The change comes as breweries (and food and drink companies at large) are coming under pressure to offer more vegetarian- or vegan-friendly options, to accommodate consumers’ changing preferences. An online petition to “Make Guinness vegetarian / vegan friendly” reached 1,500 supporters two months ago

    If your complaint is the strength of a drink then I think you might need to seek another kind of help first. :smiley-laughing002:

    Guinness is too weak? Rightio!
    Last weekend I had an absolute skinful of it at a dinner party, first time I've been to this couples house, the brother in law was there which I knew as soon as I saw him the night would end badly. He is an absolute booze hound.
    Anyway after a lovely dinner and copious amounts of Guinness and Captain Morgans I walked out the front door for the Taxi and launched half of it into the bushes.
    The missus was * raging at me the next day for making a complete show of us.

    Still thank * the Guinness is so weak otherwise I would have made a proper * of myself and would have been * through the eye of needle for 3 days.

    Couldn't agree more. More than happy with the way it is. I'm a big Guinness drinker, I love the stuff.
    If you're complaining it's too weak. You need help.
