kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2011
33cl Bottle. Appearance is dark brown/black color with fizzy, beige head. Aroma is sweet with some hints of roastiness. Taste is similar with dominant sweetness, slight roasted malts and vague hints of coffee. Palate is light- to medium-bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and mild sweet finish.

Vignale (3375) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
uinness bättre hälft. Stort brunt skum. Fyllig rostad smak av kaffe, choklad och soya. Bra balans mellan sötma, stramhet och fyllighet.

NordicV (1959) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2011
Ganska stor skillnad mot en Guinness på fat. En helt annan känsla i munnen. Inte den gräddiga känslan som fatvarianten (eller kolsyreburk) ger. Mörk, nästan svart i utseendet. Beige skum, ganska kraftigt. Doft av kaffe. Smak av kaffe och bitter choklad. Ganska skarp beska.

Niente male come stout, bevuta a secchiate quando si era più giovani, ora si può anche fare a meno...

Benzai (14282) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Dark brown color with a deep dark red glow coming through, thick beige head. Not much smell and taste, pretty flat. Lightly bitter. Ok carbo and body, decent beer.

Dudar (108) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUL 18, 2011
Almost black with ruby hue. Nose: prunes, molasses, cocoa beans, coffee. Taste: coffee, chocolate, sherry notes, dark fruit. Brisk bitterness, roast aftertaste lingers, some smoke in the finish. High carbonation.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Das Guiness Extra Stout macht vom Etikett her auf Understatement. Das Einschenken offenbart ein super-dunkles Stout mit fast sahniger Krone. Wunderschönes Malzaroma und ein deutlicher Einschlag von Röstkaffee bestimmen die Blume. Wie gestaltet sich die Verkostung? Zuerst dominiert eine angenehme Bitterkeit, die zur Mitte hin ansteigt. Der Abgang ist trocken, malzig und klingt in einem langanhaltenden röstbetontem Finish aus. Guiness Extra Stout ist ein Bier mit Kraft und vollem Körper auf das ich gerne zurückgreifen werde!Test vom 8.10.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche
