W barwie czarne jak smoła, piękna, beżowa piana, drobnopęcherzykowa, jednak dość szybko opada, lacing słaby. Aromat dosyć słaby, czuć palone słody i coś jakby przypalony karmel. Piwo jest jak na stout zdecydowanie za bardzo nasycone. Całkowity brak goryczki. Za słodkie. Ogůłem może się sprawdzić jako barowe pijadło, ale nie w tej cenie. Nie polecam.

RW80 (1151) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 33cl bottle Appearance: A Good light brown rocky head on top of a black body, but the retention ainít that great, the big ring of lacing is nice. Aroma: Coffee, roasted malts, nuts, caramel Taste: Moderate sweet, with a hint of sourness, which makes it moderate sour. Taste folllows the Aroma. While nice allthough itís a bit watery.chocolate aftertaste thin body, lively carbonation,oily texture. Good example, with good availability, but not the best beerby far in the style

SamTheBarrel (585) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2015
330ml brown bottle poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a large frothy khaki colored head that reduced quickly, leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and nutty notes. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Guinness Extra Stout is fuller bodied and more flavorful than the regular Guinness Draft, overall a better beer but without the creaminess.

axl (142) - Lund, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2015
Blind sampel @ Systembolaget tasting. Dark to golden brown, weak brown head. Sweet "prickly" aroma with dried fruits, soy acidity and some yeast. Acid almost sour taste, lasting green-ish bitterness.

AlfredoGarcia (103) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 2, 2015
It may be a huge, marketing focused commercial beer, but Guinness is just great. Toasted malt flavour with a little bit of vanilla, traditional for a stout, but refreshing at the same time. Itís not the best stout youíll try for sure, but itís always welcome because itís everywhere in the world.

Aromat słaby, lekka nuta przypalonego karmelu. W smaku słodkie, lekko kwaskowe, lekka goryczka.

martin00sr (1468) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2015
Black with rocky light tan head. Roasted, slightly jammy aroma. Flavour has the same, light body and a sourish note to the roasted malt. Carb is rather high, finish is bitter and slightly metallic.

dacht dat ik deze al lang had gerate,nog even de flesjes vergeleken met de foto, maar ja dit is het .... waarschijnlijk weer zoín íspecialí variant-- yeah right.... schenkt zwart, minimale bruine kraag. aroma zeer beperkt, koffie, geroosterde/gebrande mouten. Smaken zijn wat licht zurig, behoorlijk waterige context allemaal met wat aanvulling van gebrande/geroosterde mouten. Hoezo avalailable in Poland..... ? .... ít ligt hier gewoon in de Mitra in Leeuwarden hoor..... of hebben al die Poolse gastarbeiders het mee genomen of zo... :( ...
al met al waterige stout, met wat melasse maar niet zo bijzonder...
Earlier Rating: 4/28/2014 Total Score: 3.7
bruin/zwart met zwak matige bruine kraag die snel afvlakt. aroma van voornamelijk chocolade en mouten. smaken zijn matig zoet, zwak bitter, sterk gemout (geroosterde en gebrande mouten), medium body, textuur is wat dun, de smaakervaring is heel anders dan het aroma, het is wat dun/waterig, ietwat droog, maar prima te drinken
