3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Rocket Bar. Guinness does not seem to travel well, since this one is more bitter and acidic than its Ireland-borne uncle. Still nice enough, but I would encourage fans (and even non-fans) familiar with the US version to try the Irish version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle in a Brooklyn backyard. Poured dark brown with the typical deep, thick beige head. Strong roasted malt aroma, with dark chocolate and light, bitter coffee. Flavor starts sweet with loads of cocoa. Some dry, roasty bitterness hangs around. Medium bodied with smooth, soft carbonation. Finishes semi-sweet and roasty with lingering cocoa. Really good bottle. Seemed much better than I remember.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Black with a brown and goodlooking head. Tastes of coffee and cocoa, but there is an artificial touch in the middle of it all. Surprisingly mild but a bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared by Maria. It poured a clear, reddish brown body, topped by a dense beige head. Slightly cellarish nose with cooked vegetables, roasted malt and some chocolate. Roasted, chocolatey, coffeeish flavor with a touch of vegetables. Chocolate finish. Dry, quite effervescent. It disappointed a bit, I sure didn’t expect the vegetables, but else it’s a decent brew.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark mahogany colour with a lasting light brown head. Light aroma of toast, cheap coffee and macro ale - adjuncts, quick & dirty esters (think Alexander Keith’s). Reasonably full body, slight creaminess. Light roast flavour, with hints of milk chocolate. Too much carbonation - not only detracts from the presentation but amplifies the astringent roast finish to unpleasant effect.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Maria’s Taverna, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and some sourness. Flavour is very unpleasant acidity, some roasted malt and a stale character. This was quite vile.
