2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 "Draught" from can. Black and white; and pours in the right Guinness way. Malt and licorice aroma. Initial impression is a very watery beer, but soon a strong malt/hops bitterness takes over. Aftertaste is quite short.
*The actual draught beer is just as watery.
*Xtra Cold doesn’t make much of a difference, and certainly not to the better.

Keg, Pasteurised. We all know what it loos like but the flavour has definitely become thinner over the years. There is still the dry, coffee like almost powdery mouthfeel. There is a treacely finish, but ultimate experience, I think not!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 Bottle and draft. Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Nose and taste of creamy mocha, burnt chocolate malt and light roast. Creamy mouthful. Body is wafer thin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark clear brown stout with a creamy nitro light moka head. A light chocolate malt aroma, coming more clearly as beer warms up (served way too cold). In mouth, a nice peaty malt, roasted notes, especially when imbibing the foam. Lighter bodied, but overall, much superior to what we get in Canada. On tap at O’Neill’s, terminal 3, Heathrow. Mid Nov. 2006.

The main thing, or maybe the only thing I like about this beer is the dark brown almost black color with almost no head. The rest is just average to me. Not bad not good, and not very special to me.

on tap-pours a deep, rich, tan head that laces nicely. Color is black, with the white rivulets condensing. Aroma is coffee and malt. Taste is coffee. Nicely done, but not my taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours almost black with slight red mahogany edges. It always looks so cool when the grey-brown bubbles floculate when pouring, ending as the creamiest, most staying head in history. Aroma is, as always, mildly sweet, with a roasted edge. Flat and creamy mouthfeel, letting the beer glide down easily. Flavour begins sweet, then gets more roasted, and thus, bitter. Dry and creamy, sweet and roasted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Typical creamy lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Very bitter. Little bit of apple fruitiness and milk well hidden behind the typical dry stout taste.
Guinness is best fresh from tap in Dublin, but this can is not a bad substitute. 8 4 7 3 14 =3.6
Tap: Finnegan’s in Hengelo. As it should be: bitter, roasted malt, smooth and creamy. Thin and even a bit watery, in spite of the creaminess. Still a great session beer.
