Guinness good for you - official - BBC News

    The old advertising slogan "Guinness is Good for You" may be true after all, according to researchers. A pint of the black stuff a day may work as well as an aspirin to prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks.
    Drinking lager does not yield the same benefits, experts from University of Wisconsin told a conference in the US.
    Guinness were told to stop using the slogan decades ago - and the firm still makes no health claims for the drink.
    The Wisconsin team tested the health-giving properties of stout against lager by giving it to dogs who had narrowed arteries similar to those in heart disease.

    In Ireland we've known about this for years. :cool:

    Guiness is a lovely drink and SWIM likes it occasionally.

    SWIM heard that Guiness is supposed to be good for anemic people if they have a pint of it a day

    Beamish > Guinness

    But it's still pretty nice.

    That coffee beer with the ball in it(flavor savor?), ewwwwwwww. You gotta be really desperate to drink that stuff, ISO.

    Coffee or coffee-like? I'm guessing you don't pour it right. SWIM has tasted coffee-flavoured stout which was vile however.

    A bad pint of Guiness can taste kinda like cold coffee.
