COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The basis is an unfermented but hopped Guinness wort extract shipped from Dublin, which is added to local pale malt ingredients and brewed locally. The Malaysian version has in recent years seen an ABV downgrade to 6.8%.

The FES currently (2010) found in Hong Kong is the Malaysian version, as is the FES found in Cambodia.

As of 2011, this is the version now found in the Peopleís Republic of China, which formerly had a 5% version. That version no longer exists, so Chinese FES ratings should go here.

worldbeertaste (1550) - AUSTRIA - JAN 7, 2014
My 8th Guinness. Dark brown with a tan, think lasting, nice lacy head. Smells like a malt drink. Liquorish, fudge and syrup. Sweet at first with soft roast and malt and caramel, with a malt drink liquorish finish. Tastes like Malta with a bit of bitterness. Little roast. Worst Guinness Iíve had so far.

foxo82 (649) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Country #89. 320ml can courtesy of Daniel Brown - cheers again Dan. Would also like to give credit to the guy who gave this to you - not sure who... Guinness black. Aroma is toffee and caramel sweetness with fruit cake but itís relatively weak. Taste is watered down coffee, sultanas, orange peel, some cigar smoke. Finish starts off short in first few mouthfuls but builds and lingers. Balance is on the sweet side - some mulled wine creeping in as I work down. A nice way to chalk off another country.

RihardsF (81) - LATVIA - NOV 18, 2013
Bought in Malaysia in a hotel bar. Smells like porter/stout, nothing intense. Pours black with light brown head. Tastes watery, a bit overcarbonated for me, sour, then roasted malt kicks in with some bitterness and again sour. Donít like the sourness of this one. Had waited for something more intense. Pretty big difference from Irish version of Guinness - day and night.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Dark liquid with a nice head, Guinness tastes coffee and charcoal. It has a distinguished smell and a somewhat bitter aftertaste.
