Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle shared by Badgerben at Cellarís Wine & Spirits. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a creamy llight tan head that dissolves to an off-white ring and some film. Aroma of light roasted dark malt, a touch of coffee and dark pitted fruit. Taste is full bodied, lightly carbonated with a flavor of dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and a touch of mild bitterness. Finish is dry with a toasted malt aftertaste.

JK (5045) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Shared by Badgerben. Much more full flavored and more roasted flavor and aroma than ordinary Guinness. Fairly thick body, good palate. The roasted quality dominates, but there is some grain flavor as well. Dry finish.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle at Vg nation in Lund. Black with brown head. Tastes like guinness draught, but with a fuller body and a richer taste with a little chocolate and slight sweetness to it. I think itís more enjoyable than normal Draught.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 27, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 This dark brown, almost black colored beer is very interesting. Roasted malt has aroma of coffee, taste also, with oily texture and relatively long finish...some other things can be felt in the flavor, like some fruitiness or even hint of chocolate. As of one of the most famous dark beers it as Iíve said very interesting, and of course good beer, but surely there are other better stouts...
