2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
As expected, my bottle of mud pours deep and black, with a thin chocolate head that held steady throughout the serving. Without the nitrogen pour, the bubbles were a little bigger, of course, but the lacing was still generous. A little fuller in body, the hoppy bite was noticeable, relative to the standard U.S. Draught version. There’s a little alcohol heat and a nice lingering sweetness, balanced by the hoppy bitterness.
While I like this better than the typical draft, Guinness is still a far cry from any number of the HUGE assortments of stouts and porters readily available in nearly any local brewpub or brewery. All in all, while this is a very serviceable quaff, I’d prefer to drink local and fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
275 ml bottle. Brewed in Saint Lucia. Opaque black liquid topped by a small tan head with clinging lace. Roasted malt nose with caramel notes. Bittersweet roasted malt upfront. Chewy, tannic, chocolatey, herbal hop notes. Much more assertive and complex than regular Guinness. Very tasty and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l pullo irlannista. Muhkea kahvimainen pehmeä vaahto, mustanruskea väri. Kevyttä paahteisuutta tuoksussa, tulee jopa porterit mieleen. Savuinen, kalaisa, pehmeän samettinen, liukas. Paahteisuus jälkimakuna. Hyvää kamaa, joskaan ei kovin moniulotteinen.

FTA. This is a reminder to self not to purchase it over and over again. Only Guinness I can drink is the one that comes form tap in at least England. All others are equal to Corona and other similar trademark names.
