Pours black with little head. Smells and tastes of malts, a little coffee, and a little bready. It's very smooth, light, and easy to drink. Good, solid stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a big thick head which was a brown/white color, went away pretty quick but left a real nice lacing behind. Nice deep black color. Very malty smelling, with hints of toast, coffee and chocolate. has a roasted taste with a nice bitter bite. On the finish you get a little sweet chocolaty flavor. This is a very, very good beer. Definitely have a Guinness Extra Stout, this beer is up there with some of the craft beers I pay $6-$10 a pint for.

Toasty malty aroma, some coffee aroma in there. Taste of roasted malt, maybe slight coffe and a bit of an odd lager like finish (foot funk?). Enjoyable stout overall but prefer guinness draught.

Great flavor, color and aroma. Certainly has an astringent flavor with a bit of charcoal and roasted flavor. Another winner from Guinness!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is lighter. Tobacco. Dry. Metallic.
Brown color on the pour. Head retention is a little too much.
Taste is dry. Metallic. Tobacco. A little acidic on the finish.
Palate is alright. Dry. Light. Acidic.
Overall this has the biggest tobacco note of really any beer I’ve had. The acidity is a little rough though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coffee black with a thin foamy tan head. Tastes dry with dark roasted malt and coffee. Almost what a stout should taste like, but the finish isn’t quite right....like there’s been a shortcut somewhere.

pours a black color with a medium khaki head. the aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and nuttiness. the taste is similar and this beer has much more bitterness compared to draught version.

12 oz. bottle. Thanks, Michael! Pours black, with a small, beige head. Chocolate, tobacco, and syrup aromas, with some light spicy and resinous hop aromas. Sweet, with an unpleasant burnt bitterness that lingers far into the finish. Relatively nice, sweet stout, but the flavor is unpleasantly bitter.
