Bottle thanks to SarkyNorthener cheers Martin; dark brown almost black pour with creamy tan head, dark fruit and chocolate aroma, taste has liquorice, dark fruits, sweet chocolate, a surprising but pleasant amount of bitterness, definitely got more hop character than your standard Guinness.

That Dublin beers stronger African cousin adds a lot to the Guinness experience. With stronger notes of toffee and laid down fruits, it ups the performance of the oats and hops and give you the bitterness and alcohol you miss when drinking regular Guiness. A very fine version of the black stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and plums. Taste is really weird: sour/bittersweet with a long lasting roasted coffee and malt taste. Certainly an interesting brew, not at all what I expected, but quite unbalanced and thus far out. I still enjoyed it somehow.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is sugary latte, roast, a little hazelnut,slight chocolate, very appealing. The taste is not as good as the nose plum, sugar, toasted malts, milk, a slightly sour lemon tone in the mid pallet which is not well integrated.
An uneven beer, with a great nose but some odd falvours in the mix.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
deep dark colour, dense, creamy grey-ish beige head, which lasts forever; slightly weak aroma of coffee and plum, maybe some chocolate, as well; taste of chocolate, coffee, plum, some ginger, hints of tobacco and maybe some vanilla; excellent taste, less intensive and complex aroma - anyway, still very good
