Pours the part with a nice fluffy cream hued head that leaves a thick lacing coating as this is downed. Light roasted coffee, faint chocolate. Light to medium body.

Bottle from Pig in Lake Geneva. Pours black but without the wonderful swirl of a draft Guinness. Damn, I love that swirl. Nose has some of the usual expected mild stout; taste the same....good but not wonderful....need a draft!

Old rating. Poured into an English tulip pint. Beautiful deep black with ruby highlights and nice creamy beige head. Not much aroma to speak of...only a faint toasted maltiness. Well-balanced with roasted malts and slight hoppy bitterness on the finish.

Well I was pleasantly surprised by this brew; I actually might say I prefer this to the original Guinness draught. Although this doesn't pour with the famous nitrogen-induced cloudy head appearance, still has a solid ruby black hue with plenty of creamy head. Aroma is a little stale and bland, but has some roasty malty notes to it. The taste had a more pronounced earthy hoppiness than the standard Guinness, nice roasty malt balance as well. Smooth and drinkable, pleasant dark chocolate and bitter English hop finish. Not amazingly impressive, but I could drink this as a hearty dinner accompaniment.

Bottle. Black color with thin tan head and substantial lacing. Roasted malt aroma. Bitterness and chocolatey malt up front with some coffee notes. Sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BierMeHoos (288) - Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from the bottle into a Guinness Stout glass. Pours dark brown with a nice khaki head. Smells like creamy chocolate and smoke. Tastes like bananas, coffee, and chocolate. Palate creamy and smooth. Overall a really nice stout.

Obfuscate (240) - Minneapolis, - JAN 3, 2015
$3 for a bomber, canít beat that. Like the draft with a bigger mouthfeel and more carbonation. Get the roasted malt and slight hints of chocolate. Very easy drinking, it wonít make you slow down like bigger stouts. Could session these but stouts not a style I session.

Rodriguez (313) - Quito, ECUADOR - DEC 29, 2014
This is kind of similar like Draught, but dryer, may be too much. There is chocolate, caramel. Medium body and good carbonation. Not bad, but For me Draught is better.

loubar (150) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Nose of caramel and roasted malt. Taste of bittersweet cocoa, black coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, molasses and earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish. Good balance of complexity and richness of flavors. Not too heavy. Medium carbonation. Alcohol well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Could be smoother but generally a crisp easy drinking stout. Love the 5% ABV.
