This Guinness Brew smells and appears to be excactly like a regular (loosely used term) stout, but the flavor sure is different. It is much richer, with more roasted malt flavor. There is a deeper flavor than the original, it is less sweet, even though you still smell a sweet aroma.

As good as other stoutís get, this is still the one that all others are compared to, for good reason. Sweet, not that alcoholic, creamy, and rich. Had this on tap at the Red Lyon in Lawrence.

Has several elements present in the Extra Stout. However, the smoky finish and toughness are absent, so it is a beautiful stout with no repercussions. I like this way more than any other Guinness I have had previously.

Pours dark black into a creamy head which dissipates into lingering heavy lacings that hang on the glass. Carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass into a pool of creamy swirl in the center of the glass. Aroma of creamy yeasty hops and roasted chocolate malts and barley. Initial flavor of buttery dark chocolate fading to a dry smoky finish. Not as creamy and thinner than the original, but still an excellent tribute...thereís NOTHING like a Guinness!

I like this more than I thought I would...like the lite or summer version of guinness. Very refreshing and drinkable while working outside. Good job in not making the original better but giving an alternative to the original.

Very smooth! Dark cola color with strong head and lacing. Good overall flavor with a smooth finish. Nice touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2009 This is good, much better then the extra stout, but in no way does it come close to Guiness Draught. Basically this is just a typical stout with some of the nice Guinness flavor. The special consistancy is just not there. Still a good drink..

Dacrza (542) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Situation: Trying to erase PSUís loss to OSU... Glassware: Guinness tulip... Appearance: like any other Guinness--jet black, formal for the evening, with a milky brown head... Aroma: lactic, milky with a smoke that somehow cohabitates into an awakening of cocoa... Palate: soft, creamy body that stands with enough backbone to flourish at the throat--smooth across the tongue with a fortified aftertaste... Taste: velvet milkiness with a complexity unexpected--hops and malts are in a whirl of enjoyment... Overall: A celebration of all that a stout should be--dry, creamy, yet warming, invigorating, a pint that needs to be refilled...
