If you were in a pub sometime between 1821 and 1970, chances are this is the Guinness you would have been drinking. Originally brewed as the XX version of our Porter, it’s hoppy, roasty, and crisp, with a bittersweet finish.

Bottle. BB Jun 2018; Drank Jan 2018 - Opaque dark brown/black in colour. Medium creamy beige head. Malty; roasty/burnt malts, grainy, liquorice, chocolate, coffee, caramel. Hoppy; light hops. Bittersweet dry roast malty throughout. Bit thin but OK. Drinkable. (2018-01)

BeardedAvenger (1478) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2018
Bottle in Indian, New Haw. Nil aroma. Dark. Thick beige suddy head. Lightest itter with some sweetness. Pretty tasteless to be frank. Thin. Watery. Soft carb. Pretty abrupt. Not great.

thejackpacker (850) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2017
Bottle. Far less beautiful than the guinness draught, and less silky smooth. More a light porter. Not bad.

damzz (566) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 21, 2017
Pours a solid black with a beige big bubble head. Nose is coffee. Body is full. Carbonation is prickly dancing on the tongue. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate. Dry. Slightly bitter after taste. 11.2 bottle

p0urmeac0ld0ne (513) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 18, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Thinner than the draught variety, and a bit dryer, with a more roasted malt taste to the famous bitterness. I rated this 3/5 in my 1001 Beers book.

KoNrRiI (1769) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2017

0.5 bottle @ Davies Court
Very dark brown in color with a small, brownish head. Aroma of dark malts, roast, leather, chocolate. Taste is sweeter, milkier, chocolate persists, roast is subdued. Medium, slick, almost fizzy. Finish is medium long and sweet too. Overall, not a bad brew for commercial purposes.

MrTipple (7868) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Dark, roasted, toasted malts, charred toast bread, sweet, dark fruits, candied prunes. Hazy, dark brown, small, creamy, off-white head. Light bitter. More dark, toasted malts, dark roast coffee, burnt, dark toasted bread, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Decent, prefer the draft version. Bottle from Waitrose, Chiswick.

julesxxl (867) - FRANCE - DEC 1, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 (heart beer, facile et noirceur dense, titre plus que la draught (à retester))

kraddel (9679) - 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 (866) - 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!
