2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep brown- black pour. The nose is lightly sour and kind of dirty. A little bit of honey flavour and some dirty sort of flavour. Meh - pretty awful.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Consumed at BTBF. Pours with a deep brown hued body with a small tan head that fades. Aromas are slightly sour, stale malt character, mild roasted barley character, a touch of hops, clean yeast wise. Flavors show a lot of stale malt, light sulfur, bready and sharp roast. Mild bubbles, pretty dry, thin. Pretty mild and stale tasting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours thick jet black with tan head. Nose is like a hoppier regular Guinness. Tastes malty, with resiny hops, less malt character than regular Guinness, and a lackluster body. A disappointment that just might change the joke where Arthur Guinness, Pete Coors, and Augie Busch sit around discussing beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 fl oz bottle at Burger & Beer Joint, Miami Beach, FL. Sampled on January 22, 2012.
Dark reddish brown to black color, huge lasting tan head. Sweet, cream, a bit roasted scent. Roasted, malty, cream taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
I’d drink it again given the chance.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
2012-11-16. Very dark brown-black body, small tan head. 3+ Mild dusty aroma, muted roast notes. 6+ Flavour is very mild, very light roast character lingers in the finish. Average to light bodied palate. Inoffensive, it is mostly just bland and not very exciting. I could drink more of it but would never buy it. Bottle shared by Radek

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This brew pours black with some chestnut color around the edges. Medium thin tan head that diminishes steadily to a film. Somewhat roasty aroma with notes of malt and chocolate. Light to medium body with a roasted malt character and flavors of mild hops and chocolate. The finish is short roasty malt. Seems like this beer is being marketed as a "less heavy Guinness" which is amusing. Simply average overall.

Bottle. Woody chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown color with giant tan head.. Lightly sweet chocolate malt flavor. Very light body. No bad flavors but extremely light.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Lihue 7-11 drank at the house in Kaua’i, 27/08/12. Deep ruby with copper trim and an unconvincing cappuccino head. Admittedly slightly schwarzy aroma; rusted ashtray, pureed grilled veg gone through the coffee filter, incinerated paper, carob. Fag ash- sprinkled shredded wheat, rusted flavour with suggestions of Happy Shopper coffee granule, Bisto granule, more rusted iron, cheap dark chocolate...all heavily watered and stirred with a Twiglet, then a rusty nail. Thin and nasty...but it grows on you.
