majkelr (136) - Lębork, POLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Aromat słaby, lekka nuta przypalonego karmelu. W smaku słodkie, lekko kwaskowe, lekka goryczka.

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 zo’n ’special’ 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..... ? .... ’t 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...

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

Dummi (19) - - JAN 19, 2015
Cerveza muy negra, opaca, de espuma muy escasa aunque suave, y de un bonito marrón. El ligero aroma a café invita inmediatamente a un sorbo. El sabor inicial confirma el gusto a café, a tierra quemada, a madera negra dejando para el final el agradable sabor del lúpulo en un equilibrio original y excelente.

StoutHead (807) - DENMARK - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle (labeled "Extra Stout" and 4.1% abv). Pours a deep red, almost black colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt,, caramel and "that Guinness" taste. Thin and watery body with low carbonation. Not bad - it’s a Guinness - after all, but not that interresting compared to the Special Export version.

Soft black stout. Smooth and softer than other stout or porter style beers. Anyway a good one to share with friends.

adasko (807) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Aromat niezbyt ładny. Przypominający koncernowego lagera, z nutą przypalonego karmelu. Piwo ma brzydką, grubo pęcherzykową pianę. Jest czarne, niemal nieprzejrzyste, z rubinowymi refleksami. W smaku też nie jest zbyt dobrze. Jest słodkie, absolutny brak goryczki. Słodkość jest zbita nutą stęchłego słodu. Piwo jest średnio wysycone, jak na stout może nieco za bardzo. Sprawie też wrażenie wodnistego. Ogólnie jest BARDZO daleko od tego co w UK można spróbować z beczki.

Teran (115) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 1, 2015
UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Much better is stronger Guinness (7,5%). This one is 5%. Anyway, nice to drink, if you forget that it is possible to buy much better beer for that money. I do not understand that politics to have another Guinness in every country. In Australia they make Guinness with 6%, in Ghana 5,5%, Panama 4,5%, Malaysia and Hong Kong, Singapore, Jamaica, Kenia, Tanzania 6,8%, Indonesia 4,9%, Ireland 4,3% and so on… Anyway, Guiness is still Guiness :)
