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, it’s hoppy, roasty, and crisp, with a bittersweet finish.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2008
Bottled from Sainsburys. Almost black with a billowing but short-lived tan head. Slight, roasty aroma. Light mouth feel with some sweet malt followed by a hint of coffee. An abrupt, dry finish was disappointing. A lot more enjoyable than draught Guinness but still a poor stout.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle- Deep, dark brown, almost black, with a thick and frothy mocha cap. Nose of toasty, roasted barley with woodsmoke and coffee, leading to dark chocolate and vanilla extract. The taste is bitter dark chocolate covered coffee beans with vanilla and oak, lending a hand to a herbal, sharp hop bitterness towards the finish. Quite a full mouthfeel for such a light beer. I like this one.

[bottle from Asda, High Wycombe] Manages to capture much of the flavour of the draught stuff: caramel, coffee, malt; plus also the smooth texture. However, has a very off-colour and frothy head, and a slight fizz that just doesn’t sit well within Guinness. Still pretty decent stuff though, especially considering how big a global brand it is.

Dublin, Ireland. Bottled Smooth palate that suits the coffee dryness from the roasted barley

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2008
(IRELAND) Nice black color with a dissipating med-tan head. There is a roasted malt / smoky chocolate aroma with a nutty bitter taste. I enjoyed this more than Guinness Draught. This is a full bodied brew that is BRILLIANT...... lol

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
Canned from the republic: Black, beige head. Mild aroma with roasted malts and notes of smoke. Uncomplex flavour with more roasted malts and faint notes of coffee. Moderate bitterness. Low carbonation and watery palate. Very drinkable. Good with salty food. Though uncomplex this is a prototypic dry stout. Enjoy the crack...

...pretty damn good, next best thing other than the real deal. Goes down so easy it’s ridiculous. no head due to the lack of nitrogen, but it’s 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 (7911) - 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.
