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 (841) - 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 (892) - 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 (133) - 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 :)

puredelusion (122) - Lviv, UKRAINE - DEC 26, 2014
0,33 bottle. Pours black colour with minimal fizzy brown head. Fair head lacing, mostly diminishing. At first - very weak, almost absent aroma. After a moment, when the beer has "breathed" it appears - light malty, a little bit of burnt dark bread, coffee. Cloudy light to medium body, average density, fizzy carbonation, dry texture. Initial flavour is light sweet and acidic. Finish is very short and dry, some light bittersweet is present in it. Very average stout.

Pours almost black in colour with a good off white creamy head.You get a roasty aroma.The taste is very malty with an hoppy finish..So you get that dry feel.

Bottle. Pours a black color with a creamy head and bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with bit of caramel and coffee. Taste of roasted malt and bit of coffee i n the background. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and somewhat creamy. Not quite the same as a Guinness on tap.
