We know what Brewdog are going for but how do they compare. Same widget , same pour but I like the subtle chocolate and caramel in the new one.
A modern stout they say.

I’m trying to unwind. What a night

If I had to choose one, I’d choose Guinness, but that would be purely on tradition, I’ve never tried Black Heart.

Arcade Made though, that’s a beer.

Stoutzilla is not to be taken orally……. Read the can.

I think Black Heart beats Guinness, it's fantastic. And the Jet Black Heart they have done in the past is also excellent. For me the best version is the draft Black Heart in their pubs.

[awaits someone coming on this thread to derail it with their fervent hatred of Brewdog]

That said, I think there are some amazing stouts from smaller brewers, Unbarred and Cloak and Dagger both make some beauties.

I've not tried the new Black Heart, but before lockdown I was working Monday - Thursday in Edinburgh and there's a Brewdog bar airside in the airport. Two pints of Jet Black Heart and something to eat to go with their hot sauce was the regular order. Preferred Jet Black Heart, despite my username, but that's based on having a couple of very slow chilled pints before a flight, rather than an all night sesh on it.

Proper Guinness, poured lovingly in a pub in Ireland....mesmerizing to watch...will beat any other stout wannabe. Over here it tastes like straw after a couple of pints

Completely agree, but that quite often not available. The NitroSurge device (£30) they brought out last year is brilliant and pours a damn good Guinness at home. It's not quite a draft, but you can't get much closer at home.

That Nitrosurge device was designed by Asahi in Japan

Well done them then. Doesn't make the Guinness it pours any less nice.

We had them developed pre-covid, also there's a converter for bottle use. We use it to put a head on Asahi SD
