Bottle. This is the one without the Nitrogen capule, and it is quite evident on the head, which is lighter, a lot more patchy, and disappear extremely sooner than the version with nitrogen. The aroma is about the same: caffee, chocolate, karamel and burnt malt. The color is dark mahogny to silky black. Some hops in the aroma. This beer has a somewhat watery mouthfeel, and it has a CO2 bite. I think there are some earthy hints in it. I believe that the brewery can do better than this, in particular for a beer with its reputation.

Molto diversa dalla versione classica, questa "original" ha un aroma meno pronunciato e un gusto affumicato non molto convincente. Molto meglio la classica.

La birra è gradevole. La carbonazione è moderata ma non da fastidio al palato. Al naso si sente un po di lievito, un po di alcool e un po di caramello, legno bruciato e cola. Sul palato l'odore dell alcool e di lievito che si sentivano prima scompaiono, e fanno posto alla liquirizia e al legno bruciato. Si sente anche un po (quasi impercettibile) di affumicatura. La birra l ho trovata un po acquosa alla metà del sorso. Inizialemete il sapore è dolce ma subito subentra un amaro piacevole che rimane anche dopo qualche secondo dopo il sorso. Una birra non male, che si può bere.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Too gaseous, waterish, was worse than Primator Stout from bottle. Obviously capsule in a can does the trick to be closer to draught real Guinness

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017 Meget flot i glasset: sort med brunt skum. Lukket i næsen. Smager overraskende mildt. Brød og malt. Tør finish.
