For Continental Europe, to stay in conformance with the German Purity Law, Guinness produces an all-malt version, replacing the flaked barley.

Geiserich (3292) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 27, 2005
Deep brown head. Much carbonation, roasted aroma, light fresh. Astringent flavor, roasted malt in the end. Dry bitterness.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2005
Bought in Nordhorn (D), 4,1% on the label. Other country, other beer laws, so this is the "Reinheitsgebot-Guinness". Lighter colored as the usual Guinness, the head disappears fat. Roasted malt aroma with some chocolate . Also a roasted flavor, but very smooth, with some fruit and chocolate. Thin to medium bodied. Lighter in flavor as the "normal" Guinness, but I really like this beer. A bargain for only $ 0,90 a bottle.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2005
Bottled. Pitch black colour. Slightly off-white head, but quickly fading. Coffeish, roastmalty aroma. Dry, coffeish, roastmalty taste. This one is way better than regular Guinness, but afterall too dry and from my perspective the coffeish, bitter-chocolatey flavours of a stout cry for a little sweetness. Therefore only a little above average in my book.

Ingevara (788) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2005
Smoky, roasty gragrance, vreamy head covering a very dark stout. But there is little less, it is too dry, no bitterness, not much flavor at all. This beer looks and smells interesting, but tastes disappointingly.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2005
All malt, no hop flavors. Creamy and roasty. I donít claim to be a guinness aficionado, so I can say from my own personal wanderings in the stout arena, guinness is good, but pretty plain to me.

TBone (12426) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2005
Bottled (BB 07/2005)
Well-known Guinness outlook: opaque black with creamy expresso head. Quite mild nose with roasted malts and milk chocolate. Smooth, watery with hard metallic mouthfeel. Lacks bitterness in the mouthfeel totally. Roasted flavors come in the aftertaste. Quite tasteless.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2005
on tap in lyon, FR. Servered a lot colder then normal guniess. Seemed a little light, but still had the same look and feel of normal guniess. Iīd have to say this works.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pitch black beauty common for Guiness. White , creamy head. Hints of roasted coffee, chocolates. Some malt. Tasted a bit different than what we get in the states, but I couldnt really put my finger on it. lighter than the draught though.

Dachaz (6) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004 does not count
Many judge Extra stout after drinking Guinness Draught. Iíll say that itís not for everyone - but a must-taste for ones who like their beer bitter.
