3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (labeled "Extra Stout" and 4.1% abv). Pours a deep red, almost black colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt,, caramel and "that Guinness" taste. Thin and watery body with low carbonation. Not bad - it’s a Guinness - after all, but not that interresting compared to the Special Export version.

Soft black stout. Smooth and softer than other stout or porter style beers. Anyway a good one to share with friends.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Much better is stronger Guinness (7,5%). This one is 5%. Anyway, nice to drink, if you forget that it is possible to buy much better beer for that money. I do not understand that politics to have another Guinness in every country. In Australia they make Guinness with 6%, in Ghana 5,5%, Panam 4,5%, Malaysia and Hong Kong, Singapore, Jamaica, Kenia, Tanzania 6,8%, Indonesia 4,9%, Ireland 4,3% and so on…
