UPDATED: NOV 20, 2003 Better than the original, because of the bitterness. Dark, dark and darker it pours. I love to watch the bubbles cut through the beer
Earlier Rating: 11/14/2003 Total Score: 3.8
Good beer, a classic. Dark, Dark, Dark, in color obviously the reason for the little widget to cut through. Tan huge frothy head. Roadted malty flavor, hoopy. Good stout. It does taste a little better on draught.

In the glass it is a chocolate brown with a large bread. Aroma has roasted malts and bitterness. Taste is pretty smooth with mild bitterness and some sweetness. I taste some roasted malts. Pretty good finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 Pours dark but thin with a large fizzy head. Smell is fairly faint but pleasant enough. Mouth feel is a little thicker than I expected from the pour, but still too watered down for a stout. Taste is not very strong, but smooth with a just a little bitterness. There are better stouts around, but I?d definitely drink this again.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 11.2-ounce bottles in a pint glass. Compared both this and Guinness Draught side-by-side. Compared to Draught, Guinness Extra Stout had a thicker head, and a deeper, richer roasted aroma and taste. While both are good, I do prefer the Extra Stout. A little heavy to drink with a large meal, but on its own it is one of my favorites. These particular bottles say it was brewed in Ireland, not Canada, although I have had both.

Nice roasted malts smell. Black in color. Taste of roasted barley and espresso coffee notes at the end that tend to linger. Full body and love the carbonation. Finally a guinness for me. Nice work.

Pours dark with a thick tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate and nuts, bitter. Finishes medium with a bitter kick.
Perfect for a cold day!

I have always enjoyed this beer. I think it is one of the best widely abailable stouts. I always drink this right out of the bottle. Has a real dark chocolate taste with a bitter finish. I generally do not like stouts, but this one is always tasty and relatively light.

Bottle. Pours black with a massive beige head. Good cling. Aromas of chocolate, gypsum and dark drugs. Flavors are gypsum, unsweetened dark chocolate, bread, and slight fruitiness. Dry as dust. Clean moutfeel. All-time classic stout.

1pt 6oz bottle. Pours clear black with minimal tan head and moderate grayish-tan lacing. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate, dark coffee. Taste of sweet coffee, malt, chocolate, quickly turning sour of grapefruit, long-lasting sour coffee taste. Would buy again.

De geur is al heel divers, met chocolade en gebrannde mout erin en de smaak is zeer goed, zeer rijk, terwijl ik normaal geen fan ben van stout. Dit is een aanrader
