If you were in a pub sometime between 1821 and 1970, chances are this is the Guinness you would have been drinking. Originally brewed as the XX version of our Porter, itís hoppy, roasty, and crisp, with a bittersweet finish.

Iím a big fan of this stuff. Itís got a very untrendy old manish image in Ireland. Most people who drink Guinness at home either go for those nasty nitro cans or worse those bottles. Anyway, to compare it to the the keg version (with nitrogen) itís fizzier, oakier and (crucially) Gunniessier. It lacks the smoothness of the draught version though.

garthicus (2797) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 4, 2007
Pint bottle - Pours black with fluffy head, has a slight burnt malt aroma. Smooth tasting with chocolate and malt flavours, a very enjoyable stout, totally opposite to Guinness on tap.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a nice crteamy light brown head leaving a good lacing. Aroma is a bit sweet with plenty of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. The mouthfeel is smooth. The flavour is soft and bit sweet with roasted malt and caramel, chocolate, some coffee. Bitter roasty finish. Great brew!

Russo (1868) - Hemhofen, Baden-WŁrttemberg, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2007
Can 13,5% extra Free in London :) One of the best dark beers, Guinnes original has a aroma like some Coffee and chocoloate, same to the flavor and bitterness at finish, the color is balck with some brown touch and dark beige head creamy. Amazing beer! Cerveja com aroma de cafť e chocolate o mesmo para o sabor forte e amargo.Cor negra com marrom que vai tornando a espuma bege e cremosa.

No beer Iíve had thatís this widely avaliable is anywhere near as good. The initial flavours of smoaky burnt malt are hard to beat. Perhaps Goachers Crown Imperial Stout has better smoaked malt but, hey, I canít buy that in any supermarket in the country.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2007
Pours black with brown highlites and a dark beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor is bittersweet coffee, and roasted malts. Medium body with a little too much carbonation. Overall, a solid stout.

Rune (9314) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 2, 2007
500ml screw top bottle (English edition, 4.2%). Served at the right room temperature. Almost opaque, black coloured body. Rocky, off-white head, most of it lasting and leaving lacing on the glass. Rounded, but vague smell of roasted malt. Dark coffee beans with roasted barley in taste. Short tail. Easy to quaff, but not too watered (Thanks to Eva, 01.04.2007).

KM (398) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle. Nice black body with reddish tones. Weird head, but it gets better. Heavy aroma, but it is hard to say what it is. A dry and airy flavour. A bit disappointing. But the old guy at this pub drank it so I guess that means quality. (The Quill Dublin, 17.03.07)

i had the english version so it was pasteurised. not as creamy as the draught, but a stronger sharper taste.
