Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Can thanks to Omhper. Deep black with thick tan head. Smoky aroma is fruity too. Very smooth with hint of licorice rounding it out. By far best GFES I have had, has nice dry fruity character, solid malts, skins of Bosc pear, very nice.

Bottle. Thanks Scheffel. Pours dark brown, nearly black with a small creamy beige head and lacings. Nose is roast, coffee, fruit and chocolate. Oily and vinous. Lots of smoothness and balance in both nose and taste. Very fine.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 25, 2009
Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma of plums and sweet cherries, with chocolate, and a vineous port and sherry touch. Dryish and vineous flavour, with cherry notes, a tart feel and pleasant roasted coffee notes in the background. Good bitter finish.

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2009
# 86 [Bottle from Scheffel sampled the day after in the cinema.] Wonderful carried in a waterbottle and surrounded by icecubes I sampled this brew 20 hours after it was opened. Of course the carbonation was disappeared, but a great oily look with no head and a woody almost porty flavor gave me the impression of an unusual african beer. Creamy, burned malts, some sourness, but also meditative.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 325ml bottle from an offie in Norwich. Only the eagle-eyed, borderline autistic ticker would have spotted that this wasnít the standard Dublin FES, but something altogether more exotic and poisonous. Offensive sweet cheesy sock aroma thatís almost making me gag. Not quite pitch with a creamy tan head. Astringent dissolved penny bitterness, pencilly (possibly hop-derived) conifer, thin toasted grain, watery cocoa, charred wood. Like sucking cheese spread through a trampís sock. So bad, so wrong I canít stand to part with it and have re-capped it and put it back in the fridge. No, no, no. Everyone else loves this and I canít believe Iíve missed out. This isnít Guinness, doesnít make me RBís top rater of the (Dublin-based) blackstuff, and is probably the biggest disappointment of my beer-drinking life.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 13, 2009
Bottle, at home with tashi, 4th April 09. Smoother than the Irish GFES but at the expense of body. Lacks the bitterness of Irish GFES but feels stronger. Sweeter fruitiness to taste, no roast note. Less head. More like a schwarzbier than a stout.

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
325 ml bottle. From Cardiff, Wales. Pitch black colour with tiny tan head. Aroma is dried fruits, raisins and some roasted malts. Flavour is quite interesting. Roasted malts, dried fruits and some bitterness. Canít find the sorghum, but I guess itís there somewhere. Some coffee too.

Bottled(325ml). -from some random shop in Wien. Black coloured, oily texture, medium sized brown head, light roasted and licorice nose. Roasted malt, dark fruits, plums and raisins with notes of licorice. Bitter roasty finish. Nice stout with sorghum.
