Dal9000 (163) - Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2014
At Murphy's. On draft. Excellent thick foam that stays for the entire drink. Thick light chocolate with a touch of sweetness. Perfect pour that took some time to pour and get. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Mimo, że zdobyta wersja Guinessa nie jest na azocie to piana z tego piwa jest jak najbardziej godna uwagi -gęsta i obfita oraz długo utrzymuje się w postaci obwódki. Piana ta jest uzupełnieniem ciemno brązowego koloru piwa. W szklance trunek ten jest nieprzejrzysty z ładnymi rubinowym przebłyskami jeżeli szklankę odwrócimy w stronę światła. Niestety w aromacie trunek ten był ubogi. Udało się wyczuć jedynie delikatne nuty czekoladowe . Za to smak tego piwa jest genialny – delikatna, przyjemna kwaśność od palnych słodów. Do tego początkowa wysoka słodycz na podniebieniu, a całość zamknięta przyjemną czekoladową goryczką. Po prostu pycha.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle at home with a screw cap, 500 ml, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4.2% Almost totally black pour with a very tall and beige head, thick and creamy, less than the nitro cans or the draught version though, that turns to a sopay one really quick, but with good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, oats, a bit of coffee. Not very strong aroma. Nice taste, typical Guinness actually, roasted malts, coffee and oats, some light hops on the finish. Medium thick body, again no so thick as the nitro cans or draught, carbonation on the high side. Overall what someone expects from a Guinness but I think i’ll stick to the (much cheaper here and better) cans.

Can from Tesco, Carrick-On-Shannon [250414]
Black, frothy beige head, some lacing
Aroma of soft roasted malts, touch of dark chocolate, dark malts, not much on the nose
Taste of roasted malts, some dark malts, dab of bitter dark chocolate, slight burnt notes
Palate - Medium carb, light to medium body, falrly bitter. Finish is dry with some bitter burnt roast malts
Overall - Not as good as draught Guinness, thinner with a more bitter finish

peponi (250) - POLAND - APR 21, 2014
Aroma: roasted dark malts, wheat. Appearance: dark color, nice white/beige head. Taste: nice medium bitterness (roasted malts), coffee, slightly watery and dry, acid. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, nice long roasted finish. Overall: Classical stuff, but still a very good beer, for me much better then Draught version.

oliodnb (241) - ITALY - APR 19, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 33cl bottle, Italy. Label says 5 instead of 4.3 ABV. Black with a foamy head, different from the fine, creamy one of the draught Guinness. Aroma and taste are also different, sweeter and less toasted. Some coffee and hops in the finish.

edsspoon (302) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Pours black with a thick fluffy, light brown head and some good lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel with a hint of smoke. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, cocoa and a mild earthy bitterness. Minerally and slightly sweet. Unfortunately this leaves a lot to be desired, it’s not that good.

InPivoVeritas (231) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma of dark malts and dark bread with light roasty note. Carbonation a bit too high. Body medium-low. It’s OK, nothing more.
