I admit that I enjoy the Extra Stout version, so I figured I’d give the draught version a try. Poured from the bottle. Pours a nice dark brown/black with a 1-finger light brown head that lingers for a very long time (nitrogen treated). Aroma is very faint burnt malts. Taste is very light compared to the Extra Stout, but mostly coffee and water. Very light, watery mouthfeel. Overall, this is okay, but nowhere near as good as the Extra Stout. Tastes very "healthy" for a beer.

Hafif yanık kokusu. Oldukça boş tad. Çok az alkol ve çok az malt tadı. Çok sulu.

Its Guinness, if you haven't tried it, try it. Don't complain while I enjoy one while you drink your foamy water. A great classic that is unique.

Excellent beer that is best served with some jameson and baileys dropped into it via a drop shot.

Genialny patent z tym azotem - piana jak marzenie, bardzo drobna, dość obfita, kremowa. Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat palony, trochę kawy. Po zabełtaniu wyczuwalny DMS. W smaku delikatny posmak kawy i słodu. Bardzo wytrawne. Nasycenie niskie. Goryczka niska. Delikatne ściąganie na języku. Warka z datą ważności do 21.06.2018. Puszka 44 cl.

One of my favourite beer. I like draught beers! In Serbia you can buy it for 2 euros, it maybe expensive for half liter but you need to try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Ok-ish. I’d aspect a really strong coffee and malt taste, but in reality this beer is kinda watery.

Best pour in Malaysia is probably at Magnificent Fish & Chips. Relatively rich for non-craft stuff, it's quite a neat little stout. Especially for their RM20 offers - can't pass up that price.
