kraddel (8893) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2017
Pours very dark brown. Good, stable, rather sizeable white , creamy foam. Smell is rather weak. roasted malts, coffee, tad of sweetness to it. Taste is sharp, bit bitter, dry roastyness, coffee, sharp carbonation, bit creamy mouthfeel.

dorain (652) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2017
Aus der Flasche am 2016-05 getrunken. Leider viel zu dünn und lieblos. Wie schon das Dublin Porter ist das ein Guinness was ich nicht brauche. Enttäuschend!

Bottle. Darkest brown with creamy eggshell head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, touch of coffee. Taste is chocolate, a touch roast, lacto, grainy. Oily, a bit watery mouthfeel, with medium carbonation. Ok.

Bottle. darkest chestnut, creamy golden brown head. Slightly perfumed aroma. Light fruity roast with a bit of chalk and earthy/grassy hops. Light, mellow body. Earthy berrylike and roasted nutty notes retronasal. Pleasant, a lot better than the Draught.

ronaldtheriot (1995) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Guinness Original has a thick, creamy, beige head, a dark brown, with red highlights, appearance, and some spiderweb glass lacing. Aroma is of dark-roasted malt, cream, coffee, and brown bread crust. Taste is of those elements, with some acrid char, but no burnt qualities. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Guinness Original finishes very dry. RJT

3.2
Oziozi (36) - Pila, POLAND - OCT 20, 2017

Barwa: Ciemne, nieprzejrzyste.
Piana: Beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko opada, brak lacingu.
Aromat: Głównie kawowy.
Smak: Paloność, kawa zbożowa, czekolada gdzieś w tle.
Ogólnie: Pijalne, ale za dużo się tu nie dzieje.

3.6
thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Can from Victoria Station. Surprisingly good, for a simple stout made by a major international brand. Light roastiness, soft body, and a nice bready finish. Better than I expected.

3.7
wlajwl (7069) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Aroma is burnt toast and chocolate/coffee. The flavor is slightly burnt toast, roasted malts, chocolate and an acidic finish.
