2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dark malts and coffee. Well heated shows hint of diacetyl. Deep black, clear color with red reflection - something like coke. Medium, creamy foam, subsides quite fast with little lacing. In taste there is coffee and hint caramel. Some sour note. Bitterness is on medium level to high. Lasts rather long. Ashy, phloemy aftertaste.

Guinness draft @pub Liverpool, black with creamy head. Malty aroma and some syrup sweetness. Tasty, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, licht yet okay for now after drinking loads of Carling. Before and after the game Everton - Manchester United 3-0

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass
Aroma- Has a rich malt aroma
Appearance- Pours a blackish brown like dirty motor oil with a medium sized tan head.
Taste- Big malt flavor, the beer goes down nice and smooth
Palate- This is a medium bodied moderately carbonated beer with a thick syrupy texture
Overall- a really good stout, that is very easy to find. A great beer for those who are not used to stouts to give a try.

Pours slightly less foamy than draught Guinness very dry very drinkable but there’s much moire fun to be had in the world of stout/porter away from the stock Guinness. It just needs to be explored

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 Now branded Guinness Original XX (Guinness Extra Stout), which replaces but still the same drink as Guinness Original.* Bottle. Pours clear black, with a foamy cream coloured head. * Aroma is mild, roasted coffee & burnt paper. * Palate is medium body, high carbonation, medium bubbles. * Taste is bitter malt, roasted barley, coffee, dried fruit & slight grassy hops. * Finish is bittersweet, coffee, malty & refreshing. * Overall bittersweet malt, roasted barley, coffee, dried fruit, grassy hops. High carbonation spoils.
