thirstyrabbit (1862) - 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.

33cl bottle, thanks PeterA. Medium tan head atop cola dark-brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, roast, some coffee, light chocolate. Taste is Medium sweet, roast, some coffee, light earthy, bittersweet chocolate. Light-medium body, light effervescence.

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 (5909) - 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.

Guinness is Guinness. Had on tap in Brusselsat Irish pub. Long story...Still one of the best, no matter where it’s consumed.

thomat (4209) - G�teborg, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2013

Deu (949) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle. Mild coffee nose, with some prunes and yeast. Thick dark brown, rocky tan head. Light coffee initial flavors; dark fruit (prunes, raisins) in mid palate; finish has a sting of bitterness and carbonation. Thin-medium body. Good body.

Finwe (438) - Grankulla, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2013
330 ml bottle from Alko. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and some nuts. Very dry flavour of roasted malt and some nuts. A bitter finish.

graziano85 (480) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2013
A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and nuts maybe. Taste the same. Better body than the draught, but maybe for an easy evening I prefer the draught.

Armadill0 (362) - FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Tastes like roasted barley, chocolate and coffee. Taste is strong all around, slightly bitter which I find to be a minus in this case. Still very drinkable and tasty.
