2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pitch black with a creamy tanned head. Mildly sour aroma with hints of roasted coffee and chocolate. Aroma too low. OK, but nothing more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: smoked and roasted notes.
Appearance: clear dark color, nice beige head.
Taste: medium bitterness, roasted dark malts, smoked notes, herbs, roasted caramel, acidness.
Palate: low body and medium carbonation, roasted finish.
Overall: Why this Guinness is so smoked ? I don’t know, but really like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle; BB 24/06/15. Produced in Belgium and labelled as "Original" not "Extra Stout" but it should be the same thing I think. Pours a dark brown - black in the glass - with a big thick creamy head that retains and laces. Nose is sourish black bread crust and roasted malts that recall cold coffee, but it also has a smoky and ashy undertone. Taste is sourish roasty malts and light roasted coffee, some sweetness, and also bitterness. Palate dry, body light to medium, carbonation mild but sharp. It comes no close to the draught version but it’s still very decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another one that I’ve forgot to rate. Similar taste as the Guinness draught one but with a lack on the body and creamy head. Not as impressive as the draught one.

Bottle. Pours a black color with a creamy head and bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with bit of caramel and coffee. Taste of roasted malt and bit of coffee i n the background. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and somewhat creamy. Not quite the same as a Guinness on tap.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur noire, bonne mousse beige. Nez de malt grillé. Gout de malt grillé, café mais avec amertume moyenne bonne. Assez aqueuse, mais ca passe. Moins bonne que la foreign extra stout!

It similar enough and as good as the conventional Guinness, but the head isn’t as frothy. It kind of takes all of the fun out of Guinness.
