D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 1, 2005
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.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2005
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.

dragonlocks (15) - Kailua, Hawaii, USA - AUG 17, 2005
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.
