3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet and dry like a red wine. Like just like a red wine. Which is weird.
Appearance is really nice. Sludge colored with a great cream head.
Taste is very sweet and dry. It drinks a lot like a light bodied wine for better or worse. I don’t really care for it.
Mouthfeel is pretty good. Dry. Smooth.
Overall I think this is just not the beer for me. It brings a lot to the table though and I think others would appreciate it.

Sampled in Ireland with Linh, Scarlett and family. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thick tan head. Mouthfeel is medium with notes similar to other Guinness variants - light cocoa, soft roast and faint lactose/milk character. This seemed to have a bit more sweetness behind it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
