Not as nice as on-tap. I remember years ago I thought Guinness was so strong and heavy. Now, now after several stronger stouts, Guinness isn't nearly as "stout" as I once thought. Still a great beer. Huge tradition. Always has a thick, foamy head. Wonderful taste.

First there is huge difference between Guinness on tap and bottled one. No need to say on tap is much better. But,i will review bottled, 5% alc,made in Dublin,imported to mostly eastern Europe.

It is hard to review beer after more then 1200 reviews. Almost everything is written. Smell and appearance are plus for this one,but the taste is to alcoholic for me. Roasted barley,coffe and bitter aftertaste.

Again,i did manage to drink it on tap in Scotland,and that one was the best on tap beer i ever had,but this one is just above average.
