Bubblegum aroma with a good bitter taste and a nice dark brown color. Way better than what they sell in Hungary.

kwik-lime (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Deep roasty aroma. Tan head which doesn't last too well. Dry roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, ash, hops, a little chocolate in the finish. So much more character than the regular version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdiBeer (1681) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Aroma: toasted malts, vanilla, caramel. Appearance: black, frothy, beige head. Taste:light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, getting a little sour as well, a bit acid, toasted malts again, grain/bread otherwise, soft carbonation. Overall: decent Foreign Stout, fantastic aroma, palate a bit too much dominated by bitters and acids. Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 One of the many special foreign versions of Guinness made in Africa with sorgho. Yellowish beige head, colour practically black, aroma with a sweetish sorgho character, spicy notes and the typical roasted coffee beans; taste roasted bitter with creamy mouthfeel, quite complex and refinedly spicy due to the sorgho and a remarkable lactic acidity of yoghurt or sour cream, sweetish with dry finish. The best Guinness I tasted so far, even if coming from a location where one would not expect a beer this interesting.

65?cl bottle shared@kevnic2008’s exotic Kurstadt tasting 12/07/2014, thanks! This weird ride of a familiar Guinness round starts with a sourish rubber nose, truck tire wafting underneath a leaden sun. Astringent palate. I suspect the sorghum (and also, apparenly mais) introduces the memorable benchmark weirdness to the all too familiar taste, going into very complex earthy and vegetal aromatics, vegemite accompanied by liquorice cough drop, ricola and milk chocolate. Virtually none of that good for you creaminess. Not sure if I enjoyed it, but every sip was a full-on condensed discovery ride across a continent.
