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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle as "Guinness Original", 5%, brewed in Belgium. Aroma has sweet dark malts with a hint of tar and licorice. You canít smell that in the regular Nitro Guinness. Taste is quite watery like the regular version. Not much to add. I am willing to pay more for a less diluted but satisfying product.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle, bought in Germany. ABV is 4.1% Poured into a big Guinness glass.
Black in colour, with a big beige, creamy head on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of roasted malts and a bit of coffee.
Taste also of roasted malts. Aftertaste is slighty bitter, with notes of chocolate and coffee, only stronger here.
Medium thickness on the body, light carbonation. Maybe itís just my idea but I find it to have less of the creamy feeling on the body.
A good, old Guinness, never to let you down.
