redders1974 (134) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
Pours slightly less foamy than draught Guinness very dry very drinkable but thereís much moire fun to be had in the world of stout/porter away from the stock Guinness. It just needs to be explored

Good old stout. After a long time my taste has changed. Good for all the people that starts their journey with stouts.

SirLimpsalot (2486) - SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2015
@ Basunen 15-3-2: stor skum som lägger en fin kappa över vätskan. Doft och smak har en lätt rökig ton och små toner av choklad och malt. Inte någon större skillnad från fatvarianten. Något mjukare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

DIBBLE (61) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Tan head dissipated to wispy trails fairly quick. Aroma of roast malt intensified in the mouth with a burnt bitterness. Pleasant toast caramel finish.

lmastr (35) - Norma, ITALY - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle @Temple Bar. Very similar to Guinness Draught, but somehow flattened by the absence of Nitrogen. Pours ruby red/dark brown with a foamy head. A bit flat but refreshing and drinkable.
