look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

A: as with all guinnesses, it really is gorgeous. Nice creamy head, nice brownish bubble effects.

S: much better than the draught. We actually can smell some roasted character (coffee and chocolate) but it is still much weaker than most stouts.

T: Again, some roasted characters that weren't present in the draught version. Some coffe, chocolate and even some vanilla. Again, much weaker than most stouts.

M: Still a bit watered down, but again, it's better. Mid light body with very low carbonation. Creamy feel.

D: Very high. It doesn't taste really strong and it has an acceptable taste. Not too hard on the stomach too.

Serving type: bottle
