Brown hue, manila head. Beads of lace here and there.

Smells oxidized and generically malty. Tastes of slightly aged hops, mild astringency, and zero roasted malt character delivered by a thin body. Wtf?

Hard to be disappointed when coming in with low expectations, but here we are. This gives "dark beer" everywhere a bad name. Please stop producing it.

Bottle. Black with tan head. Huge chocolate malt. I prefer the Draught version just for the nitro.

I think I have had Guinness from 2 or 3 different regions and can say that not having them together I cant or had noted a different taste. Pour is black and has a nice tan head. Aroma is full of coffee,chocolate and malts. At finsh taste it smooth and malty but then bitter hops hits you and that my friends is what makes it great.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate tan head. Aroma is dark malts and dark fruits, reminiscent of a doppelbock. Itís both sweet and roasty. These is a kind of a fruity, malty sweetness with a touch of roastiness. I like this better than Guinness Draught, but Iíll stick with higher quality stouts.

Bottle. Light molasses, chocolate, and barley malt aroma. Black brown with a large tan head. Burnt barley malt, dark fruit, and a long roasty bitter finish. Light body, lively carbonation.

tectactoe (1510) - Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle: Deep brown color, ruby highlights with a khaki head that isnít nearly as impressive as Guinness on nitro. Very faint aroma; roasted barley & malts, grains, tin, a little bit of dark fruitiness, mostly red grape. Taste is a little more heavy... Roasted, charred malt & barley, toasted grains, positive alcohol presence with more red grape, almost in a wine-like manner. Finish with a hint of bitter coffee & mild ash. Booziness quite apparent for only 6% ABV. Not bad, but honestly Iíd take the US Draught over this... Easier to drink & I like the dryness of it. I donít love the vinous dark fruit I pull from this one.
