UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 The original version of Guinness somehow is just not as good as the Guinness draught, more spicy and more acidic to drink. It still tastes somewhat as Guinness should and is ok.

Canned. Deep rubyish black colour with small off/white creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, some bitternessas well as ashes. Flavour is all the same with a quite mouthdrying finish. Tasty.

500ml can from local supermarket. Dark red brown colour with a diminishing head. Some quite bitter roastiness apparent throughout. Relatively light mouthfeel. Finishes dry. More interesting than the nitro-ed up version but didnít really grab my attention. Easy-going and OK but rather run of the mill.

Bottle from Ramsgate Social Club: Run of the mill stout. Some nice roasted malt flavours, but a little thin in the mouth and also a little fizzy. The Nigerian Foreign Extra is undoubtedly the king of guinness beers, but this is certainly better than the standard draught.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 doesnít sit well within Guinness. Still pretty decent stuff though, especially considering how big a global brand it is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth palate that suits the coffee dryness from the roasted barley

(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
