Been a while since I could find this type of Guinness in a NON nitro bottle!Bottle has coding ,no readable date . 11.2 fl. oz. Brewed in Dublin. Nice creamy malt aroma. Deep dark body with full long lasting beige head. Appearance is not as fulsome as the nitro version, no discernable "fall". Taste is flatter as well, but still very pleasing to the palate.

Poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager glass. Taken from a Guinness seasonal variety pack.

Appearance: Pours a deep, black color. Has a large, foamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves some nice lacing. Say what you will about Guinness, but they always make fantastic looking beers that are fun to pour.

Smell: Smells of roasted malts with strong notes of bitter chocolate.

Taste: Moderately hoppy up front, with a bitter, roasted malt finish. Rounds off with some hints of dark chocolate and coffee. The flavor is a good bit lighter than the appearance and smell would lead you to believe. I've heard this blamed on the nitro that Guinness adds to get that perfect head and it wouldn't surprise me to be true.

Mouthfeel: A bit lacking in body and weakly carbonated.

Overall: All in all, Guinness is a pretty standard stout that benefits from a good reputation, history, and marketing team. I prefer the Extra Stout to the Draught version, but there's still nothing really wrong with this one either.
