Wall Street Journal Picks Old No. 38 Stout as Their Top Alternative to Guinness

North Coast Brewing Old No. 38 Stout“The dark stuff from Ireland is a fine beer—smooth, satisfying and surprisingly low-carb. But when it comes to pure flavor, Guinness cedes its foamy crown to American-brewed Irish-style stouts…As demonstrated in our picks here, the results are uncommonly good…

North Coast is probably more famous for their intense Russian stout, Old Rasputin, but save that one for dessert. For day-long drinking, go with Old No. 38, a smooth, rounded beer with a bit more chocolate and fruit sweetness than a typical Irish dry stout. Soft edges and a mellow, woody finish make it wonderfully complex. 5.5% ABV”
