This is certainly better than Guinness Draught, there is a thicker body, more intense roasted malt and coffee smell. Better mouth feel. Not Bad.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with huge tan head. Head retains all night long with really thick lacing. Aroma is honestly typical stout: roasted grains, residual sweetness, some very faint trails of hops, Toffee. Taste is more black coffee and acidic. Its pretty good, however, it doesnít really offer anything special...just a decent stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2013/07/09 - Pours an opaque, dark brown/nearly black colour, with a frothy, medium khaki head. Aroma is toasted malts, cocoa, hay and faint molasses. Taste is sweet up front with cocoa and molasses and an astringent, bitter coffee aftertaste. Slightly metallic finish. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with medium carbonation and a drying finish. A boring stout. Not as heavy as I remember when I was younger. Probably would only drink again if I found myself in Ireland.

This is a great beer and differs from the draft Guinness in that it has more roasted malt and is carbonated wit CO2. It is more coffee like rather than the chocolate of the draft and the alcohol seems to be up a little. Very good beer!

Bottle from the supermarket. Very little head, unlike the thick and creamy head associated with draft Guinness in Europe. Also fizzier than I expected.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A -Pours dark brown almost black with ruby accents when held to the light. Big tan head that retains well and leaves plenty of lacing.
S - Roasted malts, grassy, hay-like aroma, cardboard,
T - Heavily roasted grain, a good dose of grassy hops, sour notes add a sharpness. Hint of cocoa powder toward the roasted bitter finish.
M - Body is on the heavy side of medium, ample carbonation.
Not as good as I remember it but still better than the watered down draught version.

Iím going through a try all the stouts I can phase, and decided to try Guinness mostly because thereís so little choice here. The experience has been slightly different each time, but over its nondescript except for an unpleasant bitter aftertaste that reminds me of dandelion sap. I had to buy a six pack because you canít get singles here, but Iíll be glad to have the space back in my beer fridge for better drinks. I can tolerate it and even prefer it to many dark beers, but its definitely the worst stout Iíve had and wonít be buying again.
