3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

From bottle. Strong yeasty aroma. The famous black appearance with sheepy head. Flavour of charcoal syrup with a balance bitter after taste. I enjoyed this bottle. I dont think you can go wrong with Guinness, like marmite you either love it or hate it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one looks identical, but is 6% and brewed by CUB under license from the big G. Sweet old-ale style aroma - slightly roasty with some sweet caramel. Some dry bitterness on tasting, but a bit bland. Not much depth at all in the mouth. Not bad, but it struggles against pretty much all the other Australian brewed stouts.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 Abit harsher than its little brother Draught Guinness. But this one is alot more flavour some but less smooth as it uses more CO2. It has more flavours of coffee and burnt wood along with the sweetness of chocolate but when you drink it a real party goes on in your mouth.
A salute to Arthur Guinness for this pint, as its the closest Guinness can get to the brew he made all those years ago!
