3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours almost black with some red in it and a big light-brown head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, hops and licorice. Quite bitter - in taste and finish. Above average body and below average carbonation. It absolutely has that special Guinness taste but it’s not quite as good as the Special Export (Belgian version).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
325ml bottle. Pours black with a medium-sized light brown head, which unfortunately collapses after not too long. Aroma is interesting, like Guinness Draught you have the smell of roasted malts and some dark chocolate, but there’s also a warm fruitiness to it, almost like a liqueur. Taste is predominantly roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate too. Quite a bitter finish, more so than the Draught, which I prefer to this.
