Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Might end up being the same thing as the Canadian-made one, local lager mixed with Dublin extract (so an alias). Pours mostly black, with a thin head. The aroma is chocolatey and a little bit toffeeish. Has some fizziness, some chocolate and sweeter caramel character. Sweet accent in the finish, again with some caramels. Not a lot of roast, nor is there much bitterness. Kind and gentle, this one.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Aromat delikatny, wybija się skórka od chleba, jest też gdzieś, daleko paloność/kawa. Piana gęsta zwarta, drobna, ładnie zdobi szkło, kolor ciemny prawie czarny, przebłyski czerwieni. W smaku wyczuwalna gorycz palonego jęczmienia, troszkę za długo się utrzymuje, średnio niska. Smak ogólnie delikatny, piwo dość mocno pijalne. Jeśli chodzi o odczucie w ustach, to tak jak pisałem, piwo pijalne, przyjemne, nie można mu nic zarzucić. Ogólnie polecam.

BitchPls (545) - FINLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle bought from Estonia and brewed in Belgium so not the same beer but still the same ABV. Cola black beer, foamy dark beige head. Very mild aroma if anything. Watery body. Crispy carbonation. Roasted coffee, liquorice. Quite nice bitterness actually. Some sweetness too. Actually pretty good, a lot better than what I expected.

dragosani (40) - SPAIN - APR 6, 2014
Botella de 33cl. Color chocolate oscuro y servida con espuma que se diluye al poco para dejar una fina capa que se mantiene durante casi todo el trago. A temperatura ambiente ligeramente enfriada tiene un sabor fuerte y en boca es un pelín espesa, pero no es una stout y menos aún una Guinness Original, aunque de el pego y se pueda beber.

swapp (180) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - MAR 7, 2014
300 ml bottle, clear it dark-brown color with thin late color foam. taste are a bitterness with some kind black chocolate and oak. aftertaste are oak caramel. i haven’t the rich roast taste and strong foam like Guinness draft , so that’s why i disappointed that beer ... by the way that Guinness that i bought had the same as pictured but was for Russian market

login404 (1) - SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 11, 2014 does not count
Pours near black with a fizzy, thin head, aroma chocolate, tastes like a bitter lager, definitely not what I expect from a stout. Guinness should be ashamed to put there name on this swill

Jultsu (155) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Guinness original st. James gate Dublin. 330ml pullo Puolasta. Makeahko tuoksu, vetinen suutuntuma. Ei juurikaan kehuttavaa.

aleksander9 (398) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2013
Pours black with a fizzy black head. Aroma is lager skunk, roasted malts and some chocolate. Fizzy mouth feel. Aftertaste is floral, bitter, citric and some roasted malts. Overall: Skunky lager version of a dark beer. This is not Guinness.
