dark colour, moderate beige head; quite simple aroma of some roasted malt and grassy hops;taste is also not too complicated: some roastedness and bitterness; very watery - one of the lowest quality stout _I’ve ever tasted

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle bought at Tesco today. I was surprised Tesco had this in offer. This Guinness stout is a good one. A much more sensable aroma compared to the draught one. Great chocolate aroma ans taste, coffee, caramel with a great hoppy dry finish. The carbonation was too high for me. Overall this is a very good extra stout by Guinness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a black colour with a big and creamy, beige head. Aroma of some roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. The flavour is similar with the additon of some wood. Has a smooth mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A nice and balanced classic, a little careful maybe.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Tallinn, brewed in Belgium by Martens. Label in Ukranian with Estonian sticker, ingredients are not all malt though (barley malts, barley, roasted barley) but strength matches. Dark brown colour, small quickly dissipating beige head. Roasty, slightly burnt aroma with coffee, chocolate and a trace of resin, medium body, very dry, somewhat bitter taste and surprisingly the finish is a bit on the sweet side. Not bad actually, though the body should be fuller for a stout.

Flaska. Svart med moccafärgat skum. Rostat kaffe, röda bär och choklad i aromen. Samma i smaken, aningen svagare bara. Viss sälta i eftersmaken.
