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.

...pretty damn good, next best thing other than the real deal. Goes down so easy itís ridiculous. no head due to the lack of nitrogen, but itís still a nice roasty, slightly smoky, brew.

Apart from slight mild sweety roasiness other aromas are very faint. Froth is brown foamy to frothy, medium carbonated body, off-brown, smooth, coffee, chocolate, wallnuts and peanuts, cigaretts, tobacco, roast, palate nice, essential and focused, interesting but not as full as I expected.

BMan1113VR (7905) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 17, 2008
On tap at an Irish Pub in Paris. Pours with a finger thick brown head that can best be described as milky. Unreal lacing. Aroma is bitter of malts. Taste is pretty bitter out back, but the mouth feel is amazingly syrupy and good. Best to have on tap.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 malty, coffee, roastiness with a slightly ashy texture and dryer finisher than it’s more common brother.

armando629 (2451) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2008
Deep dark color from the scale between red and brown. Small and nice beige head. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, like the flavour. The taste is dry, tons of roasted malt, some plain chocolate in the mouthfeel. Good and long finish about the roasted grains, good beer

BelgianBeerGal (3456) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Both the unpasteurised Irish and continent bottled versions. Pours dark brown with a medium tan head, little lacing. Aroma and flavour are mostly dryed coffee and dusty chocolate. Fine beer.

Haslinger (886) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Pretty much the same as the North American extra stout I ahve had. I can not really tell a difference. Solid beer

ohad (16) - ISRAEL - NOV 8, 2007
aroma of rosted malt, a bit sweet with some chocolate tones. the head is thick beige, but far from the nitro draught version. color is opaque black. flavor is of roasted and pale malts and dark bread, and then at the back of the tongue very hoppy bitter, and ends long and dry. medium body, soft carbonation (very well balanced with all of the other components),

sm89walt (1827) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2007
Completely black in appearance with a large tan head. This beer only hints towards anything olfactory but what is there is somewhat smokey. The flavour is dry and of roasted malts with a fairly hoppy finish. It may not be the best brew available but you canít go wrong with it. A trustworthy stout.
