3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 0.33l. Clear, almost black color with large frothy brownishe head and pretty nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and mild hops. Taste starts with rich roasted malt and coffee, mouthfeel is dry, while aftertaste is long moderate bitter. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Very nice, however still not so good as draught...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. Dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, cream, dark fruits and even some smokiness. Taste of coffee, dark fruits and some sourness with a hint of grassy hops. The mouthfeel is not that creamy as the Guinness Draught, but I still like it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rätt vag aroma, rostade toner. Tycket den var oväntat lätt och tunn. Bra balanserad, en viss beska på slutet. Svag kaffe hint.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget enjoyed at home
Pours dark with a big tanned head. Smells of roasted malts, hints of peat and alot of coffee. Light sweet, quite dry, some roast and coffee. Moderate bitter, earthy hops. Just a very good dry stout. Nothing fancy schmancy - just how it should taste like

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle 5% ABV brewed in Belgium. First - I like the Irish version better. Second - Guinness should always be enjoyed from tap. This bottle-version is avarage.
