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 íGuinnessí or on draught, as per the review below, the optimal scenario would be a draught (in Ireland)!

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.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2002
A pitch black beer with a beutiful head. It doesnít have much aroma but hints of smoked malt. The flavor is that of smoked malt with some hop bitterness. All in all a very drinkable beer among the more fullbodied beers.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Definately less than the canned version.
Rerate 13/3/2004; Not as good as on tap. Nice aroma of roasted malts -coffee. Taste is strong coffee malty again, quite bitter and very dry. Very decent brew.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2002
Chose the bottle ícause I donít like the nitro mouthfeel fom the draught cans. Deep red in colour, good head and lacing, not such a show pony as the nitroed brews. Bitterness is over the top for a beer with so few redeeming features, light body, very little flavour, just black malt (charcoal) and bitterness. Poured 1/2 down the drain, not worth the effort.(brewed in Australia by CUB, no wonder itís crap)
