2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightweight and watery compared to many stouts from micro brewers - despite this being "the original". Some coffee taste, but rather boring.

Looks really good with it´s light brown, creamy head. The aroma is nice with a little touch of chocklate and toasted nuts.
Easy to drink.

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.

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!

ON Tap throughout Ireland. Like a distant love affair. I can still remember you sliding across the bar in my direction with your rich full head, and your dark brown body. Oh the beauty.
