Pyobon (1785) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2019 (Bottle) Pours black with big tan head. Nice aroma of smoke, nuts, roast malt. Light body and rather fizzy. Taste of roast malts, some dark toffee and tartness. Rather disappointing (I expected more for a Guinness brewed in Dublin), but very drinkable.

FireGlider (1046) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 25, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2019 Dark amber color with small brown head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Bitter malt taste.

Padchenko (560) - Ratoath, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2019 Quite a difference from the can or draught version. Pours really dark brown with tan head. Higher carbonation feel than the draught. Still smooth and full of flavour though. Mostly bitter with some sweetness present. Very drinkable

johnnnniee (5250) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 9, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2019 Bottle from the Lazy Dog. Dark brown in color with a hint of garnet and a decent sized tan head that slowly recedes. Earthy roasty and light cocoa with bits of licorice and dark dried fruits. Pretty tasty easy to drink stout.

Craftakt (645) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2019 Überraschend lasch. Kaum Kaffee und nur leichte Röstaromen. Fast schon wässrig.

czlowiekwiadro (1784) - POLAND - MAY 26, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2019 zapach przyjemny, podpalany, lekko kremowy, kawa zbożowa z mlekiem i odrobiną ziół w tle, trochę lekkiego kwasku, zarówno palonego jak i z dwutlenku węgla. kolor ciemnobrązowy, nieprzejrzysty, wpadający w czerń. piana obfita, beżowa, trwała, drobna i średnia, ale nie ma porównania do wersji draught. w smaku wytrawnie, lekko wodniste, ale nie w negatywny sposób. węgiel, kawa zbożowa, trochę nut kwaśnych, odrobina piwnicy i może ciemny karmel, czysto, prawie że sterylnie. goryczka niska, ale przy bardzo skąpym ciele i tak wyraźna, palona. nasycenie umiarkowane

DSG (18837) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 20, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2019 Can. Dark brown, beige head. Roast, some dark fruits, a bit of chocolate, oxidation, minerals, sweet, some cardboard, bitterish finish, smoky hint, light to medium-bodied. Not great.

topherwalk (204) - - MAY 13, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2019 I like these bottles, hundreds of years of tradition. Very refreshing drink

MattiasJohnson (115) - - MAY 10, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2019 Mer smak en vanlig Guinness men ända inte tillräckligt.....................

zoucrew102 (3331) - - APR 20, 2019
UPDATED: APR 20, 2019 Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with notes of floral hops, chocolate and some caramel. Pours black with a large, light brown head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with rich dark chocolate and caramel flavors. Finishes smooth with robust roasted malt flavors as well as hints of floral hops. Solid stout.
