4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle gifted by my cousin (to your health!) poured into a glass mug.
Wish I had a bar next door with Guinness on tap so I could compare to a draught but here goes...Aroma - roasted malt and brown sugar. Ap - dark with a tan head - no surprise here. Taste - 70% roast malt, 10 % hop bitter, 10 % bitter chocolate, 5 % roast malt-cherry, 5% - other? Palate - smooth but also carbonated at the same time. I have a home brew stout aging in the basement and will add an edit to compare it in about another two weeks.

Bottle. Much better than Guinness Stout draft! Medium hoppy aroma with actual discernible carbonation. Balanced hoppy taste. Slightly bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with a light brown head and lacing. Aroma of roasted grain, wheat, bitter chocolate. Similar flavor with a mild roast bitterness and a light dry, lingering finish. There is just something off about it. No thanks. Pairing: Dropkick Murphys - Iím Shipping Up to Boston

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ Butcher Block, Sarasota, FL. Dark, rich, chocolaty aroma. Tastes great. A tiny bit too bitter on the palate, but the overall deliciousness negates this. Overall, a tasty & refreshing dark brew. Just disappointed itís not brewed in Ireland.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pleasant dry stout. Nothing crazy good, but good none-the-less. Something to drink when there isnít much better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Whiffs of chocolate, coffee and some detectable hops. Great espresso bite with some chocolate coming beforehand. Lingering dry finish with espresso and hops closing the door

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a black from a bottle with a thick khaki head. No nose to speak of, perhaps dampened by the pillowy head. Flavor is of mild coffee, maybe a little cherry jam. Dry in the mouth, overall I feel the mouthfeel is where this beer stands out comparatively, other characteristics are kind of meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep black pour with a frothy, tan head. It has a sugary sweet aroma with mild chocolate. The medium body has smooth texture, sweet taste, and a dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I donít know about "Best beer in the world", but definitely a better than average dark beer. A little lighter for a stout, but still medium-heavy in appearance and mouthfeel. Has a good flavor....mainly of chocolate malts, little bit of caramel, and minor hops. Slightly bitter going down. Overall, a quality beer, recommended for anyone who hasnít tried.
