Hadn’t had one in a while. Visually this is great. Aroma was coffee and smokiness. Body was thin. Taste is coffee, chocolate, and the smokiness again.

Typical black colour with a dull slightly hoppy smell. Low taste intensity, with low body for the thickness. short finish with a thin yet creamy texture. slight bitter flavour. Straightforward and rich quality. Was not enough flavour for the boldness of the beer.

33cl can. Pours black with amazing creamy head. Nose : delicate overall aromas. Roasted malts, some little cherry and toffee notes. Dairy like freshness. Sip : Watery liquid, low density with no carbonation. Roasty feeling with dry , very light coffee dryness. Sour aftertaste. Overall : to flat and water like for a stout. I prefer a lot more the belgian, strong alcohol version.

Aroma is nice with roasty coffee-like grains and looks good too, dark with large tan head. Medium-light body initially somewhat creamy but ultimately a bit watery. Flavor off-dry, roasted malts. Not bad per se but not really something I drink on purpose.

After drinking my fair shar elf Guinness while living iIreland and then having one just the other day I can safely say that it tastes different in the states compared to Ireland. I think it has more to do with beer lines and the sheer volume of Guinness being poured iN Ireland vs the states. Too burnt and roasted for me. Gimme a Murphy’s any day.

What can be said about this that hasn’t been said already. Super dark almost black body, with a nice thick creamy head. Faint roasted caramel aroma. Flavor starts smooth and mild, while finishing slightly bitter. Overall enjoyable, definitely a sipping brew.

Classic beer on tap, pours dark black with a tick creamy head. Has a lightly burnt coffee taste. Overall a good beer, quite sessionable... Worth trying the stronger versions such as Foreign Extra and Special.

Very deep brown pour with ruby highlights and a creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate with a hint of smoky ash. Flavor is almost the same with some bitter maltiness in the end. Light, slightly sweet body.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Devided on this review and will have to revist. I have drank many in my life and remember great pours. Tasteless in Greece.

Es una de las más bonitas. Espuma muy densa, pero la cerveza resulta suave y ligera. Poco gas. Sabor tostado y recuerdos a regaliz.
