Yes, I had this as a roadie travelling out to the mountains wth bardy. Quite OK: better than the loacl CUB version by a whole way. Perhaps a little too watery. Turnips and squash and tennis and stomachs of Israel.

imdownthepub (9961) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2003
Tastes of deeply roasted barley rather than malt, with a big hop infusion. Desperate to try a live version rather than this overprocessed sop. Lasts well in the glass, but can't find too much complexity to it. I prefer other stouts.

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2003
Well, it’s Guinness again, but thinner, somewhat more bitter and has a higher ’fizz’ content. No substitute for having it out of the tap.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Tasted in the Irish Stout Vertical on St Patty’s Day 05
Nutty chocolate spice, medium bodied roast with a dry acidity and an effervescent finish. Much more stoutish than the draught version. Vanilla, fruit cake, subtle alcohol.Rerate from a 3.7 overall.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2002
I had an aged version. A nine years old bottle. Not much head. Flavour of rotten fruit. Not very good.

CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2002
UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 God awful out of a bottle; pour like molasses. You really need the carbonation ball to get the full effect of a ’Guinness’ or on draught, as per the review below, the optimal scenario would be a draught (in Ireland)!

As a stout, it’s not that bad. doesn’t compare to the widget or draught varieties.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2002
Huummmmm my bottle says 6% ABV. Dark brown opaque with a medium size and medium lasting not that creamy a beige head. Faint roasted malt and bready aroma with hints of sweet smokey varnish, charcoal and bitumen. Lighter in body palate and flavours than the draught. Medium strong short bitter start and slightly sweeter smokey middle and a medium stale bitter finish and aftertaste. Falls a considerable way short of the draught.
