3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
More bitter than I expected, and not as drinkable as the draft. Maybe a little TOO stout for me!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Completely different from its draft and can counterparts. Not nearly as creamy and milky-textured and a lot more bitter. Still, itís one of the greatest freggin beers in the world, and I can swim in it.. In Costa Rica and other tropical countries, itís alcohol content and itís body are enhanced to the point that it has taken me an hour to drink a glass of it.. Afterwards, I was fully nourished, like I just ate a steak..

A smooth drinking stout. Not as thick as a lot of other stouts. Tastes of coffee. Pales in comparison to the draft variety.

Very high quality, obviously, but not as creamy as Guinness draft.

Nice look, good flavor. NASTY aftertaste! Needs a nitrogen ball like the can.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iíve had mixed experiences and Iíll try not to let the fact that the sickest Iíve ever been in my life is after drinking too many bottles of this get in the way. This is a way different beverage than the draught varieties, more powerful in a way with an enhanced bitterness and a syrupy quality that takes some getting used to. Still, there is some roasty complexity to the brew and, were it not that the sight of the bottle can still turn my stomach, I would drink it ahead of most other beers.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
My personal favorite. I think itís partly due to it rich taste that unusually appeals to me, and also because of the simple fact that itís Irelandís íother flag.í Erin Go Bragh!!!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Not as good as the Draught, as itís even a bit too bitter for my tastes at times. However, the lovely roasted aroma and perfect pitch black appearance makes it a king among beers.

a great brew, however the foreign extra stout is always better if you can get it

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Stronger hop taste and more bitter than Guinness draft. Still smooth and enjoyable, this could benefit from a stronger taste and less bitterness. However, being that this is EXTRA stout, I guess thatís not what this is about. Iíll stick to the cans.
