UPDATED: JAN 19, 2019 A little bit too watery to me. Not bad when weather is really hot, yet I don't see it as a great pub choice.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2019 Zacht, romig en licht. Tonen van koffie en chocolade maken het doordrinkbaar maar niet echt uitgesproken.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2019 Very creamy head, black/dark brown body. Guinness is an experience, not a beer. It is a beautiful looking beer, and its century-old rituals add to its charm, but unfortunately the beer itself is just palatable. The creamy head and watery body do not mix well for me, and none of the usual stout notes appear, instead a taste of flat sparkling water, with a very weak finish of weak filter coffee.

aimeteur (8) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2019 Pours deep brown to black with a generous creamy fine tan head. Smells rich and malty. Taste is very smooth and gentle with a gentle creamy carbonation, but it's quite subdued. Roasty wholemeal bread and sweet with a very slight bitterness. Drinks very filling and cozy. Finish is short and sweet. Winter drinking. I like it. Can purchased from Føtex, Midtjylland, Denmark.

TrappistMaestro24 (94) - POLAND - JAN 10, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2019 Piwo warte zakupu dla zobaczenia 'akcji widget' :-) Barwa czarna z pianą więcej niż średnia, która utrzymuje się do samego końca. W aromacie delikatna kawa - taka kawa wodnista:) W smaku podobnie, choć ta wodnistość jest mniejsza. Gorczycki brak i nasycenia brak.

PintjeFritz (567) - GERMANY - JAN 9, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2019 The appearance is simple wouw, this beer you must drink in a glass, black beer with very long stable fine creamy light brown head, smell is light sour and roasted, a little later cold coffee, taste is light watery but for this style it’s ok, light roasted and light malty, very creamy in my mouth, light bread, very soft carbonation, creamy texture, full body, long finish, very mild, (I have 0.44l can with best-before 26.03.2019 and batch L8147GE008)

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2019 Бутылка 330 мл. Классический стаут. Горечь в послевкусии.Пена довольно плотная,опадает не сразу. Композиция Shane MacGowan 'That woman's got me drinking' рекомендуется к прослушиванию при употреблении.

frac (13) - Bussigny, SWITZERLAND - JAN 5, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2019 Belle mousse dense comme une pression. Nez très léger malt. Bouche trop légère acqueuse avec légère amertume. Pas interessante

stevoj (7625) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2019 Bottle from Albertsons. How did i miss this? After being wowed by the export version in the UK, its time to see if this Guinness can hold it's own. Used to be a go-to for me. Near black pour, thin cap of beige head, not as substantial as I remember. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Taste also comes in sweet, too sweet. Small bitter bite is nothing like it should be. What happened here? This is a poor excuse for a stout, while their export version is superb.

MattShizzle (634) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2019 Bottle. Black with a tan head. Bubbles on the bottom of the glass. Fairly strong roast aroma. So so. Pretty weak compared to other stouts I have had. Not much flavor comparitively.
