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.

Guinness draft @pub Liverpool, black with creamy head. Malty aroma and some syrup sweetness. Tasty, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, licht yet okay for now after drinking loads of Carling. Before and after the game Everton - Manchester United 3-0 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ordybill (764) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass Aroma- Has a rich malt aroma Appearance- Pours a blackish brown like dirty motor oil with a medium sized tan head. Taste- Big malt flavor, the beer goes down nice and smooth Palate- This is a medium bodied moderately carbonated beer with a thick syrupy texture Overall- a really good stout, that is very easy to find. A great beer for those who are not used to stouts to give a try.

I find this near enough one and the same with the continental europe type, so see its review for my feedback

redders1974 (452) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
Pours slightly less foamy than draught Guinness very dry very drinkable but thereís much moire fun to be had in the world of stout/porter away from the stock Guinness. It just needs to be explored

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 Now branded Guinness Original XX (Guinness Extra Stout), which replaces but still the same drink as Guinness Original.* Bottle. Pours clear black, with a foamy cream coloured head. * Aroma is mild, roasted coffee & burnt paper. * Palate is medium body, high carbonation, medium bubbles. * Taste is bitter malt, roasted barley, coffee, dried fruit & slight grassy hops. * Finish is bittersweet, coffee, malty & refreshing. * Overall bittersweet malt, roasted barley, coffee, dried fruit, grassy hops. High carbonation spoils.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 sold in germany, but made with barley (gerste), so rating this version and not continental. mine is 4.1% abv. heavily carbonated, but the head does not last very long. medium-light body. cured ham, rye bread, citrus, grains. dry roasty finish with hints of smoke.

Good old stout. After a long time my taste has changed. Good for all the people that starts their journey with stouts.
