3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a black body, with a light brown head that diminishes after a few minutes, leaving a good lace. Malty and caramel aroma(a little faint though). Very nice bitterness in taste, along with notes of coffee. Oily texture, thin to medium body, Medium carbonation level - would’ve preffered it a little softer - , overall, it’s a beer that a liked, but it could be better. Prefer the draught version.

Your have to like irish/british stout to enjoy guinness! Because guinness is the king of all stouts. And it brings the genuine irish pub feeling directly to your home!! That dark colour, the golden Georg and the burnt flavour - splendid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from Jumbo, Santiago. This is a 5% abv version called Guinness Original and made in Belgium so I guess it’s this recipe. Pours a great black with ruby hues and a fantastic, beautiful beige head. Aroma is malty, roasty with notes of prunes and moccha. Taste is fine, moderately toasted with marginal sweetness. Smooth and soft in the palate but lacks power. Almost no carbonation. A good Dry Stout and much better than the one with the nitro thing.
