I think there is more bitterness that I am getting from the bottle which i do not think is as present in the 'on tap' version I had a few weeks ago. So guess I can see a pattern with on tap beers like this, as I can remember that when I had real Guinness for the first time in Ireland a few years back, the main differences I could see between it and the bottled/canned version(s) was that it more creamy and less bitter on tap in Ireland.
However, I do quite enjoy the smell, and it is too bad this does not equate to taste too much, as the bitterness does come in quite early on the tongue.
Well, I am happy to have a better appreciation of this beer, and that I can find better qualities from it than I have found previously. Still, make sure to have it on tap (I know Bar Biero had it on recently, but that is the only place I have found it).
two down, two to go...
