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.

Bottle bought in Dublin. Much more character than their standard draft version. It looks the same, but it has a fine body of roasted malt.

The original drink is always the best. I have been drinking this for a number of years and I dont intend to stop. Absolutely gorgeous taste when freezing cold, if bought in bottles, its best to leave them in the fridge overnight to get the best temp. Or bung it into the freezer for about 30 minutes, whichever you prefer. :)

Bottle: Pitch black with white browny head. Roasted malts & chocolate. smooth mouthfeel though it has a Watery flat body & texture. I like this better than the original version. OK

An always enjoyable beer to drink. Usually I find the can here (prefer the export bottle though :P). A very good stout, very smooth like silk, lots of cofee.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2006
A snort of bittersweet malty chocolate. Pungently bitter black-coffee roastiness. Bit of a watery body, but still as luxurious and flavour-packed as some Dubbels twice its strength.

madsberg (11069) - SÝborg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a red gleam. Fluffy light brown head. Sweet and light roasted aroma. Quite bland. Flavour of light roast, light chocolate and some herbal notes. Is surprisingly thin bodied and has a quite watery texture. Roasty light bitter end. Had expected more.

Mine actually brewed in Aust, but I couldnít find that one so iím putting my rating here. Very flat black with fruity coffee aromas. Dry hop bitterness, milk stout aftertaste.

can. God bless the woman who goes on vacation in Dublin and brings back beer for me. Pours black/red I guess, with a giant creamy tan head that will not go away. Aroma is slightly sour, chocolatey. It resembles a bigger version of Guinness Draught more than it does the Extra Stout that is brewed in Canada. A lot more sourness is evident here. Itís almost puckering. The finish is sweet of burned chocoalte. Mouthfeel is very smooth, not to the point of nitrogen, but pretty silky, none-the-less.

Fin (8704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2006
Bottle pours black with a tan head, burnt aromas, and a very burnt and bitter taste, coffee, and some chocolate tastes also present. Whilst not as good as the Foreign Export Guinness this is jolly decent and a much cheaper and more interesting alternative to the creamy bland Guinness youíll find just about everywhere else in the world.

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2006
275 ml bottle. Very high burnt taste. Almost no bitter after taste. Really nice dark beer. If I could get this one instead of the Draught, It would be a regular in my fridge.
