bottle@friend’s house: I don’t like Guinness Draught but this one is not only much better but kind of nice actually, it has a nice black colour with a really thick and creamy head, it is much more balanced & tastier than Guinness Draught and in many ways is a completely different beer actually, roasted part has been smoothed out, coffee flavours are actually agreeable now, there is some dark syrup, bread and liquorice taste in there as well, the creamy & bready taste is up font and is complimented by the syrup and liquorice and the coffee taste of which only a smidgeon can be found here, bitter beginning, smoother ending, nice macro stout

Bottle thanks to drabmuh. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours with a thin tan head and a nearly-black body. There are some light spots of lacing around the sides and bubbles on top. The nose is light roast and a surprising amount of caramel and, especially, toffee character. There’s some light candy and brown sugar as well. The taste brings a good dose of toffee along with some light roasted character and some super mild espresso following through after that. Medium body with moderate carbonation. The finish is fairly smooth and slightly dry. This is nice and easy to drink. The finish seems to dry out even more as I get through the bottle. Pretty good stuff. Thanks again, Matt.

Hmm, I almost rated this one too low, because I compared it to the draught Guinness, rather than judging it in its own right. But let’s see.. Nice dark brown colour with an creamy, tan head. Aroma close to draught Guinness, but not exactly the same. Coffee, Chicory, nuts, more of an alcohol twang. Flavour too, perhaps a bit more body. Roasted malts, chicory coffee, milk chocolate and hazelnut. Not quite as creamy as the draught Guinness, and maybe a bit light compared to other stouts, but nice in its own right. (From 33cL bottle)

Bottle. Very dark with a thin layer of foam. Aromas of caramel and rolled oats. Some ash and creamyness as well. Taste is somewhat bitter. Some caramel and toasted barley. Body is very creamy. Fairly long bitter aftertaste. Much better than the standard version here.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 0,30l fles, pikzwart met bruine schuimkraag. Aroma?s van gebrande mout leer en karnemelk. Smaak is vol romig bitterzoet met laurier. Zeker een lekker stout, al zijn er zeker betere op de markt.

Bottle (330 ml). Dark brown with a huge mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of cereals, roasted malt, caramel and light liquorice notes. Taste is also of cereals, moderate sweetness, roasted malt, liquorice, caramel and light alcohol in the finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel despite the warming. Quite different from the regular Guinness. Not a bad Foreign Stout, but not really complex.
