Is Guinness actually heavy?

Although Guinness is perceived as a heavy beer, a pint of the Irish champagne only contains around 879 kilojoules. At 4.2 per cent alcohol you'll be less shickered after a couple of Guinness rounds than you would if you were drinking VB, say, which weighs in at 4.9 per cent alcohol by volume.
