COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For Continental Europe, to stay in conformance with the German Purity Law, Guinness produces an all-malt version, replacing the flaked barley.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2005
Bottled. Pitch black colour. Slightly off-white head, but quickly fading. Coffeish, roastmalty aroma. Dry, coffeish, roastmalty taste. This one is way better than regular Guinness, but afterall too dry and from my perspective the coffeish, bitter-chocolatey flavours of a stout cry for a little sweetness. Therefore only a little above average in my book.

Ingevara (768) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2005
Smoky, roasty gragrance, vreamy head covering a very dark stout. But there is little less, it is too dry, no bitterness, not much flavor at all. This beer looks and smells interesting, but tastes disappointingly.

All malt, no hop flavors. Creamy and roasty. I donít claim to be a guinness aficionado, so I can say from my own personal wanderings in the stout arena, guinness is good, but pretty plain to me.

Bottled (BB 07/2005)
Well-known Guinness outlook: opaque black with creamy expresso head. Quite mild nose with roasted malts and milk chocolate. Smooth, watery with hard metallic mouthfeel. Lacks bitterness in the mouthfeel totally. Roasted flavors come in the aftertaste. Quite tasteless.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2005
on tap in lyon, FR. Servered a lot colder then normal guniess. Seemed a little light, but still had the same look and feel of normal guniess. Iīd have to say this works.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pitch black beauty common for Guiness. White , creamy head. Hints of roasted coffee, chocolates. Some malt. Tasted a bit different than what we get in the states, but I couldnt really put my finger on it. lighter than the draught though.

Many judge Extra stout after drinking Guinness Draught. Iíll say that itís not for everyone - but a must-taste for ones who like their beer bitter.

Black beer with white head, strong taste of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Bitterness from dark malt and from hop. Very original.

Marko (3771) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 1, 2004
This is a nice stout. Smelled a bit wine like. Lookes quite nice, with a black "body" and a fine brownish head. Has a persistent coffee taste with some hints of chocolate barely showing through.
