Marduk (7016) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2013
330ml bottle as "Guinness original 5%" brewed in Belgium. Pitch black color. Thin head. Malty, roasted and dry aroma. Rather weak. Metallic, malty, sweetish, caramel in flavor. Dry grainy aftertaste.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2013
Rätt vag aroma, rostade toner. Tycket den var oväntat lätt och tunn. Bra balanserad, en viss beska på slutet. Svag kaffe hint.

esp0r (2837) - NORWAY - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget enjoyed at home
Pours dark with a big tanned head. Smells of roasted malts, hints of peat and alot of coffee. Light sweet, quite dry, some roast and coffee. Moderate bitter, earthy hops. Just a very good dry stout. Nothing fancy schmancy - just how it should taste like

smmaaren (588) - NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
33 cl bottle 5% ABV brewed in Belgium. First - I like the Irish version better. Second - Guinness should always be enjoyed from tap. This bottle-version is avarage.

thirstyrabbit (1798) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle as "Guinness Original", 5%, brewed in Belgium. Aroma has sweet dark malts with a hint of tar and licorice. You can’t smell that in the regular Nitro Guinness. Taste is quite watery like the regular version. Not much to add. I am willing to pay more for a less diluted but satisfying product.

Beerbarella (348) - - MAR 19, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with a high brown head. Malty honey aroma. Wonderful full-bodied roasty malt taste with coffee and honey notes. Pleasant bitter roasty palate.

Christos (5355) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2013
330 ml bottle, bought in Germany. ABV is 4.1% Poured into a big Guinness glass. Black in colour, with a big beige, creamy head on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and a bit of coffee. Taste also of roasted malts. Aftertaste is slighty bitter, with notes of chocolate and coffee, only stronger here. Medium thickness on the body, light carbonation. Maybe it’s just my idea but I find it to have less of the creamy feeling on the body. A good, old Guinness, never to let you down.
