Pours the same as every other Guinness. It’s cool how they’re able to replicate the perfect pour every time with the use of the widget. Dark brown to black with a beautiful cascade of bubbles. A very neat looking beer to watch in the glass. Aroma is a bit subdued with hints of milk and oats. Taste is light and feel is a bit creamy. Overall, knowing it is made in Ireland makes it the perfect beer to drink on St. Patrick’s Day.

50 cl can, 4,2% ABV. THE classic stout. No deScription from me, that would be silly with nearly 5000 reviews already. Just a simple rating from my point of view. Tasted with a chocolate dessert. Cheers.

At draught, Three Tuns, London. A bit disappointing, mild to be a stout. Almost no hints of coffee, chocolate etc.

This is an exceptionally good light beer. I will gladly drink it instead of the usual low calorie fare. However it any hold its own against most stouts or porters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.5 l can. Extra thick cap. Dark, cloudy. Low carbonisation. Altogether typical stout, but rather flat and mild.

Aroma bem discreto, mas uma aparência perfeita, negra, espuma densa e duradoura. Sabor marcante, amargo, cremosa e com notas de café.

0.56l draught. Black color with creamy, forever lasting brown head. Some roasty aroma, but mostly nitrogen. Taste is nitrogen sour and little bitter. I am not sure if this is normal, but it is not good.
