3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost black with off-white head. Roasty aroma, some chocolate, but not very strong. A decent stout flavor, but a little thinner feeling than most. Good, for a mass-market.

Hard to argue with this classic. I just returned from a trip to England where we swam the channel, and I have to say having this on draft at a small pub in Dover is one of the cooler experiences you can have.

For a widely available stout, this is pretty good. Had it many times. Roasty flavors and aromas with just a hint of cocoa. Extremely smooth. Great and fresh stout

Draught @ Dubliners Cph: Pours dark brown with persistent creamy white head and low carbonation. Aroma contains caramel, grain, cream, chocolate, coffee and mineral hints. medium body with dry finish - overall a light stout with a nice try twist

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint from Nine Bar, Newcastle. Pours deep black with a luxuriant creamy head which lasts. Ends up feeling a touch thinner in the mouth than you might expect but the extremely satisfying roasted flavour makes up for that

First Guinness! First appearances are amazing, to watch the head form (poured from can). Absolutely opaque black, head with tight beading, colour of milk coffee. First reaction to taste was a thinness?, probably actually the low carbonation. The dark malt character is very light on the palate, making this a far lighter flavour impact than I expected. Can understand how this could be drunk all day.

A classic! Deep, rich brown/ almost pitch black* pour (*actual color is amber according to their website but I can only vaguely distinguish that during the long pour) with a huge foamy tan head which Guinness is so well known for. Flavour of roasted malts, barley, chocolate, coffee etc. Can’t go wrong with this! I’d also like to make a note that this draught has a very very low carbonation level - and thus I can down a pint of it in 5 seconds flat. Cheers!

Pours jet black with fading tan head. Been years since I’ve had this beer. Better than I remember. Still more of a fan of the extra stout but good beer
