legendary creamy and very steady head - in my eyes the very best of all beers. bittersweet taste, coffee. quite tough, bitter aftertaste.

Poured from the bottle. Pleasant smell, very nice appearance. The head looks nice and feels great in the mouth. But taste is pretty bad. Would never drink again.

Es la primera que debería probar un bebedor que empiece a introducirse en las importadas. Esta todo dicho de ella, no voy a aportar nada nuevo.

33cl bottle Appearance: A Good light brown small soft pillow creamy head on top of a black body, with ok retentiont, the big ring of lacing is nice. Aroma: Coffee, roasted malts, nuts, caramel Taste: Moderate sweet, a hint of sourness, which makes it light sour. Taste folllows the Aroma. While nice allthough it’s a bit watery.chocolate aftertaste thin body, soft carbonation,creamy foam wih a more oily texture. Compared to the non nitro version the softer carbonation does work better. Now the body slightly to thin to make it really good. But still this is better as the Extra Stout version, but not as good as from the draft.

50cl can@home. Pours black with the creamy head building slowly in that inimitable Guinness way. Makes it one of the best looking beers I can think of. Subdued aroma - not much of it frankly. Taste smooth of roasted malt but also slightly metallic. The latter thankfully disappears in the aftertaste. Somewhat watery palate. To me, Guinness is a beer of its own and best on tap in Ireland. It may be just snobbery, but so be it. As for this canned version, the jury is still out. I accept it for what it is, but I am more of a hop man I suppose.
