3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep, reddish brown, clear body with a nice, lasting tan head. Burnt malt, coffee, "dryness", notes of mocha and dark chocolate is what I dragged in through my nose. It has a taste of burnt malt, both coffee- and hop-bitterness, malt and a vague fruityness. Medium, drying mouthfeel and a long bitter finish with some coffee. A nice beer, but a bit boring and one-dimentional. (070314)

Great aroma and great appearance. Nice thick head that you could eat with a spoon. Mouthfeel is a little harsher than I am used to and extra bitter aftertaste. Flavor is nice, very very smokey

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear black (you know what I mean) with a brown head. Aroma is quite smokey, with a milky sweetness and some caramel. Quite suprised by the amount of smoke really.
The flavour is fairly dry, again quite smokey and caramely with some roast malt flavours too, perhaps chocolate more than anything, towards the finish it leans to the thin side and the finish is downright watery. So promising at the start, such a bad finish. I guess thats guinness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a Japanese Bottle, labeled as íExtra Stoutí, but it appears to be manufactured by Sapporo. Anyway, pours black with non-widgety normal head brown colored head. Smells like some kind of Japanese food, canít put my finger on it, maybe something that has noodles. Flavor is nearly nonexistent until the finish, which is slightly bitter strong coffee. The harshness of the flavor coupled with the excessive carbonation make the beer one of the least smooth stouts Iíve tasted. Real Guinness ainít half bad, I donít understand why Guinness thinks its a good idea to outsource its brewing to crappy local brewers. Booo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I usually buy these by the German border. Itís black with a nice dark head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and licorice and the mouthfeel is a bit thicker than the Draught and Original. The flavour has notes of bitter chocolate and licorice, and it has a nice bitterness. In the finish I also pick up some coffee notes. Itís nice!
