RichTheVillan (2419) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
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.

jaghana (3698) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle 33cl, @goutte d’or Paris. This version is less creamy, more caramel notes and licorice, even some lactose notes, good anyway.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
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.

vanelst (95) - AUSTRIA - APR 29, 2014
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.

Hanoi (353) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
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.

abemorsten (2593) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - APR 5, 2014
Clear deep mahogany body and a light brown film. Toasted caramel and cardboard on the nose. Sweet, papery with roasted tones. Medium bodied.

Holmen2 (634) - NORWAY - APR 5, 2014
Ebony, beige head. Sweet aroma of dark toffee, plums and dates. Taste of dark chocolate and roasted barley balanced with bitterness.

Lore (975) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 4, 2014
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
