Kurtos (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a nice cola colour. Aroma. Toasted sweet nutty aroma. Taste. Similar to aroma, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Overall. Quite average, nothing great about this beer, nor nothing too bad.

Shark_Pants (130) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours cola colored with ruby highlights, large 2 finger frothy head. Aromas of leather, Vegemite, sweet toffee. The taste is similar but as others have mentioned, it has a metallic edge & lacks the creaminess of proper Guinness. Medium bodied. Not horrible but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2014
Draught at Landsdowne Road Irish Tavern, Surfers Paradise. Poured an opaque black with a ruby edge tint and with a 5mm light tan dense and creamy head that retained extremely well (to the end of the drink) but laced poorly in spots. Aroma very subtly of roasted malt. Taste of sweet malt (quite sweet for a stout) followed by faint bitterness. Palate quite heavy but with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very smooth and creamy with a long dry slightly bitter finish. A good stout.

The most amazing Irish stout beer that I tasted, and one of the greatest to me, also the first stout tasted. Anyway, this beer have a very nice aroma, including chocolate, coffee and caramel. The appereance is black, very black in deed, a clear, but with a little hazy/cloudy semblance, the head is very large, frothy and creamy, being this, maybe the great atractive of this beer. It have lower sweetness and a lightly sour touch for the taste, being a good combination to keep and producing a great sensation in the mouth. Full bodied, with a thick/creamy texture and very fizzy, with a bitter and and a little astringent finish, giving a cool sensation after the drop. Very drinkable and great for a cold winter afternoon or a rainy day in the summer. Oysters and Guinness is a combination of world-class!

mattyhennessy (179) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours jet black with a light tan head. Taste is very metallic and masks the chocolate and coffee flavours. The hops are not balanced. Little aroma present. A drinkable stout, but not a memorable one.

varanid99 (431) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2013
Black pour with very little head. Toasted malt aroma, and a slightly off note. Taste is metallic, a little chocolate, toasty malt. Not a patch on the draught.

Could not believe how poorly Guinness has travelled to Oz. The hop balance is off, leaving a sharp metallic taste with none of the substance I expect as a devout Guinness fan. Comparing this version to the tap versions found in Dublin means ratings suffer terribly, sadly. At least much of the warming appearance remains.

Wow, feel like writing to the irish embassy to complain about just how bad and far removed this is from the Guinness at home. So rare in my life I have been unable to finish a beer due to It being so crappy. The hoppiness is all wrong, metallic, horrible. Tastes like licking a chernobilese window after an easterly wind

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours black with white head. Aroma is harsh metallic hops with roasty chocolate and caramel hints. Flavour is overwhelmed by the poor hops which buries the more robust flavours which Guinness is known for. Do yourself a favour fellow Aussies, steer clear of the extra stout and go for the "draught" version in the can ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rangi (508) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2013
Poors like coke, no significant head. Aroma of molasses which continues into the flavour. Dark malt flavour with molasses lingering as an after taste. Little too thin for me. Slight bitterness also. Just not a great beer over all.
