3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is the one without the Nitrogen capule, and it is quite evident on the head, which is lighter, a lot more patchy, and disappear extremely sooner than the version with nitrogen. The aroma is about the same: caffee, chocolate, karamel and burnt malt. The color is dark mahogny to silky black. Some hops in the aroma. This beer has a somewhat watery mouthfeel, and it has a CO2 bite. I think there are some earthy hints in it. I believe that the brewery can do better than this, in particular for a beer with its reputation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33 cl bottle. Very expensive. Smooth and refereshing, with slightly fruit flavour and sweet, creamy foam. Due to standing in glass and getting warmer, developes a rather unpleasent, bitter taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Feels abit thin to me, not as full flavored as other guinness I´ve tried, I actually enjoyed a milder flavor for a change, but If I was craving a guinness, I would skip this, drive 15 miles to Luxembourg, and get the Belgian special! lol!
