maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2009
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained no carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear black color and a hoppybitter taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppybitter with a light roasted malty touch. This beer smells malty.

sound67 (415) - Offenbach, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2009
33cl brown bottle. Pitch-black impenetrable colour, small offwhite head that collapses quickly, no lacing. Low carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Aroma of toffee and coffee beans. Taste is semi-sweet cocoa and espresso, with bitter finish and dry after taste. Much more likeable than the regular "Guinness Draught", this one - thankfully - misses out on the Draught’s cold-coal note. Good, not great stout.

Christian (11722) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2009
Dark brown with a lasting tan head. Mild roasted aroma of toffee, caramel and chocolate. Dry and roasted, rather thin flavour with a roasted bitter finish.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2009
Flaske 0,33l kjøpt på Systembolaget i Kiruna. Dyp brunrød farge. Nesten svart. Høyt lysebrunt kremaktig skum som fester seg til glasset. Forsiktig aroma av ristet malt. Smaken var en skuffelse: Den led nok under inntrykkt av mitt forrige øl - som var en mye bedre stout! Denne er OK men ordinær. Litt kaffe og ristet malt og en tørr bitterhet. Helhetsinntrykket er imidlertid ganske kjedelig.

luttonm (2962) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2009
33cl bottle in Belgrade. Surprisingly strong roast coffee, earthy notes. Much stronger flavor than I remember from draft guinness, harsher too. Tart, bitter and dry. Large foamy head with chocolate acid on the nose. Quite nice.

MikeKeller (910) - Kemi, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 Bottle from Systembolaget. Black beer with beautiful light brown head. Aroma is quite rich with coffee, roasty maltines and several other tastes I can’t describe. Very enjoable dry stout!

zakkbironia (112) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 1, 2009
330ml bottle. Dark brown color with rich creamy white foam as usual in irish beers. Nice coffe-grain malt taste fulfilling beer thirst. Pretty good for a dry stout and can easily be found here in greece.

Linnet (1270) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2009
Dark brown/black colour, thick, creamy small head that is beige, and lots of lacing. Aroma is rather subtle, but has both roasted notes and notes of coffee and chocolate and a cler prescence of hops in it. Flavour is full of coffee a bit of smoke and a crisp hoppy bitterness that is appealing. The body is a bit weak though, this keeps it from getting a higher mark. Mouthfeel is neither bad or good, just plain average. This is a good stout, but there are loads and loads of better ones out there. Serving type: bottle
