omikr0n (867) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Roasty coffee aroma. Roasty coffee aroma with hints of chocollate and caramel. Dry aftertaste. Nothing particularily wrong with this beer, but it’s not too impressive.

JaKeAFC (932) - ITALY - MAR 3, 2012
33cl bottle as Guinness Original, 5%. Almost black with red-bordeaux hues under a powerful light. Beige head, reducing but lacing. Nose of toasted cereals. Aroma of cereals, roasted malts and some coffey notes. Pleasing bitterness balances initial malts sweetness and it’s a little acidic. Carbonation is modarate but sustained. Light to medium body, watery texture, fairly dry finish. A bit weak but not bad.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Das Bier im Glas ist fast schon pechschwarz, der Schaum ähnelt den von nem Malzbier. Geruchlich ists genau wie beim Kilkenny süßlich röstmalzig, allerdings wesentlich rauchiger. Der Antrunk ist extrem röstmalzig und der Nachgeschmack kommt noch stärker als beim Kilkenny einem Schwarzkaffee nahe. Das Guinness Extra Stout schmeckt eisgekühlt einfach nur sagenhaft gut.

Bluecat (3) - - FEB 15, 2012 does not count
A nearly black color with beige foam on top. Roasty chocolate smell. Feels foamy with a very bitter and slight watery taste. Not that bad but certainly not one of my favorite stout beers.

_angst_ (4466) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours very dark chestnut brown with a frothy gray head that leaves some nice looking lacing on the glass while slowly dissipating. Smell is malty, sweet and fruity with lightly roasted malts and plums. Taste is malty and bitter with roasted malts, smoke, wood and coffee. finish is dry and bitter with wood and coffee. Bit unbalanced...

slakemythirst (201) - - FEB 2, 2012
Nej den luktar som överjäst plommonbrännvin och gammal pernod ricard och svaga toner av den sedvanliga rostade malten. Obalans råder och beskan känns som ett tafatt försök att runda av obalansen..Slutsats: Låter mina minnen ifrån Irland vara intakta efter denna besvikelse på flaska.
