4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: August 1, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... OCCASION: watching scrapbooking with Shan--sweet memories... APPEARANCE: velvet black body, dense and appreciable; thick brown head that laces beautifully, as a doily,, almost symmetrically around the glass... AROMA: nice lactic impact; hops are less profiled--oat, peat and sugars are prominent... PALATE: high and hard, warming and medium-bodied; full at the throat...TASTE: slightly chocolaty and pleasantly milky; unlike the draught, a hardened smoky finish that demands attention; hops are well-placed, coupling with the malts to present a substantial, complex stout... OVERALL: the less-requested Guinness again reminds me why the road less traveled in beer circles often makes the more rewarding difference...this beer delivers with a welcome heft and an ABV that belies its enjoyable sip. A shame this beer does not accompany the "three beers strong" mix pack--trade the Harp for this? In a heartbeat...

Bottle at Brussels. Interesting but kinda old school but I guess that should be expected with an old classic. Full bodied, creamy roast coffee and barley.

Pours black with a really thick tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and a little chocolate. Taste is of charcoal, peat, roasted malt, toffee with just a hint of bitterness.

I prefer Draught, but at $2.50 for a pint of it, you can’t complain. Smells of coffee and malt, pours a deep black (they call it the black stuff for a reason) Tastes like Draught but a little watery.

Bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Pours near black with a big tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, sweet malt, fudge, light chocolate and some light dark fruity notes. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Ok non è la guinness alla spina che si può bere nei pub di dublino, ma tra quelle prodotte in bottiglia della guinness è la migliore.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une de mes préférées ! En grande part d’un point de vue sentimental je dois avouer...
Le nez est sucré, chocolaté et fruité genre fruits confis.
En bouche, on retrouve la guinness draught mais portée avec bien plus de sucre, d’alcool et un fort arôme de pruneau !
Ceux qui aiment pas les stouts peuvent détester celle-ci.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Asda. (£1.25) This is very good. Rich coffee and chocolate. Yum! The slightly harsh finish is followed by a lovely warm glow. This is by far the best Guinness I've tasted.
