imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque deep black with foamy light tan head and creamy lace that vanishes to nothing. Aroma of Guinness twang, cream, chocolate and roasted barley, bread and grains. Light medium body - roasted barley and guinness twang. Chcocolate, coffee - medium carbonation. Finish is roasted barley, dark malts and characteristic Guinness sour notes.

Just terrible... poor head, lightly roasty aroma, watery, burnt astringent mouthfeel ..very disappointed, so far away from what this beer it really is... before drink it I though was imported from dublin, and G.E.S. it is one of my favourite beer in europe, but after the first sip I understood that there was not the beer that I was aspecting. so I decided to look at the lable....and there was written...brew in Lion under blablabla... sad...

375ml bottle into pint glass. Bit disturbing to find a slightly skunked thing going on here, but there it is. It disappears to be replaced by a mild chocolate nose. Looks right, black as pitch with average tan coloured head. Quite thin body with a bit of zing on the tongue. Finish is astringent and vegetal, then raw coffee takes over. Finally a little touch of sweet chocolate arrives. Not recommended.

RafeAU (559) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 4, 2015
On tap at King O’Malleys in Canberra, not sure of the keg’s origin. nitro. subtle dark malt flavour, minimal roastiness. pretty average. I wonder if Guinness is better at the source.

Morboso (129) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2015
I am not a big stout fan but expected a bit more from this one. Nice enough with usual generic stout flavours but pretty boring, flavour could be a bit more concentrated as seems slightly thinned out prob for commercial reasons. Coopers better in this form anyway.

Simmo (27) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours a dark golden brown with a medium tan head that dissipates to a lasting film. Good lacing in the glass. Pleasant caramel aroma. A little thin on the palate but high in alcohol. Slightly bitter aftertaste, I’d prefer draught Guinness but I would try it again.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Jet black, frothy mocha head. Roasty malts, cola, caramel aromas underpinned by an ordinary metallic element. Strong roasted flavour with some dark chocolate, charcoal, coffee bad heavy hop bitterness. Perfectly carbonated.

TourDeBeer (122) - your mummas pants, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2014
Watery, lacks body, low bitters tastes like a tooheys extra dry, they use the word crisp to advertise a stout? I should have realized at that point. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Kurtos (142) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a nice cola colour. Aroma. Toasted sweet nutty aroma. Taste. Similar to aroma, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Overall. Quite average, nothing great about this beer, nor nothing too bad.
