Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2012
Quite different from the nitro can or on tap versions of Guinness. Still pours a deep black, but with a thinner and less long-lasting head. Theres not a huge nose, and thats reflected in the rather milder taste profile. Theres chocolate, malt and a light metallic hint to it. Carbonation is very light, making it easy to drink. Still very smooth, although I think I prefer the draught.

Shark_Pants (714) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours cola colored with ruby highlights, large 2 finger frothy head. Aromas of leather, Vegemite, sweet toffee. The taste is similar but as others have mentioned, it has a metallic edge & lacks the creaminess of proper Guinness. Medium bodied. Not horrible but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2013
Poors like coke, no significant head. Aroma of molasses which continues into the flavour. Dark malt flavour with molasses lingering as an after taste. Little too thin for me. Slight bitterness also. Just not a great beer over all.

M_Sack (667) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Jet black, frothy mocha head. Roasty malts, cola, caramel aromas underpinned by an ordinary metallic element. Strong roasted flavour with some dark chocolate, charcoal, coffee bad heavy hop bitterness. Perfectly carbonated.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 4, 2015
On tap at King OMalleys in Canberra, not sure of the kegs origin. nitro. subtle dark malt flavour, minimal roastiness. pretty average. I wonder if Guinness is better at the source.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque deep black with foamy light tan head and creamy lace that vanishes to nothing. Aroma of Guinness twang, cream, chocolate and roasted barley, bread and grains. Light medium body - roasted barley and guinness twang. Chcocolate, coffee - medium carbonation. Finish is roasted barley, dark malts and characteristic Guinness sour notes.

DeliriumT (534) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours black with white head. Aroma is harsh metallic hops with roasty chocolate and caramel hints. Flavour is overwhelmed by the poor hops which buries the more robust flavours which Guinness is known for. Do yourself a favour fellow Aussies, steer clear of the extra stout and go for the "draught" version in the can ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle. Black body with garnet hints, large off-white head. Aroma-taste: blackberries, toast, some smokiness; significant roast bitter finish. Moderate carbonation; medium bodied.

Mjollnir (401) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 26, 2010 375mL bottle. Pours dark red to black without much of a head. Faint aroma of burnt malt and yeast extract. Tastes like a slightly burnt chocolate biscuit really. Light-medium bodied, soft carbonation with a lingering bitter and slightly astringent finish.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Very big taste, bitter sourness due to the amount of iron from what I hear, on tap in Dublin it comes out like toast and milk
