UPDATED: MAR 13, 2008 THE Beer. Pitch black, browny head - very big & bubbly, lasts for a long time. The taste is unbeatable, what can I add here, everyone knows it. Feels great on the palate, very bitter aftertaste. Awesome, legendary stout. Almost Godlike.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours Darth Vader black with a massive, creamy beige head, looks like soft clouds that i just want to throw myself in (but i didn´t).
Leaves good lacing also. Roasted malts, slight chocolatey aroma with some hints of brown sugar. Flavour is burnt, acidic, coffee-ish, with a sparkling mouthfeel. Not as smooth as the draught. Finishes of somewhat bitter. It has a little touch of bread/toast in the aftertaste. A laidback beer, where none of the flavours are sticking out.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I am a big fan of guinness draught. I decided to try the extra stout one day, while walking through WalMart beleive it or not. I was not disappointed. when I popped the cap my nose was instantly gratified, which was accompanied by a rich coffee flavor with a slight bitter aftertaste. Usually I have a pint glass on hand, but this day I did not. I could not judge color of the body through the bottle, but I could see a rich light brown head peeking at me through the bottle.

Bought in Nordhorn (D), 4,1% on the label. Other country, other beer laws, so this is the "Reinheitsgebot-Guinness". Lighter colored as the usual Guinness, the head disappears fat. Roasted malt aroma with some chocolate . Also a roasted flavor, but very smooth, with some fruit and chocolate. Thin to medium bodied. Lighter in flavor as the "normal" Guinness, but I really like this beer. A bargain for only $ 0,90 a bottle.
