Dark brown-black beer with a superb creamy white head. Nice roasted aroma, drak chocolate, coffee perfume. Medium bodied, fine roasted tastes, liqueric coffee, fine dark chocolate, caramel and some sweet malt. Nice, drinkable and strong one. Fine&long coffee aftertaste.

altonbrownd (4813) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Jan 1, 2009 A pleasant surprise. A really enjoyable and well-balance Guinness that tastes almost better than the Irish version. It’s quite sweet with nice chocolate and toffee flavours. Less bitter than usual.

bobinlondon (1275) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2009
Scruffy bottle from local asian off licence.. Black with a beige foam. Aromas are roast malts with lots of raisin fruitiness. Also has some light woody, smoky notes. Flavours are bitter coffee followed by sweet creaminess and dark fruit. The Sorghum gives it some gluten free beer character but its far better than the majority of those.

I was absolutely stunned at how good this version of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout was! I’ve had the Irish, American, and Belgian versions of this. In my opinion, the Nigerian version is the best. I have a sweet tooth so I know everyone’s opinion will be different. Nevertheless, this is a version I HIGHLY recommend to everyone. This version is sweeter than the others yet still has that great Guinness taste that we all love.

CH-303 (1818) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2008
Appearance: Very dark brown, basically black. OK amount of tan head, short-lived. Aroma: Dark malt, sweet. Prunes, dark fruit. Taste: Dark malt, burnt. Quite sweet, too sweet? Some coffee. Info: 325ml bottle, 26/12-2008

Compared to Irish version: Appearance: This version has darker and less head, and the head doesn’t last as long. Aroma: This version is sweeter, almost artificial. More malt? Taste: This version is more fruity and sweeter. The Irish version is more bitter.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2008
Pours dark brown with a creamy white head. Smells of sorghum, some sweet chocolatey hints, some molasses, dark fruit. Tastes of sweet corn, some roasty hints, spicy. Interesting and much more enjoyable than the garbage they ship to the US.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Bottle, shared by hopscotch. Black body with a tan puffy head, nice lacing. Roasty, chocolate nose, with caramel, lightly tart and some spicy hops. Chocolately with a strong caramel component, roasty, a little hop bitterness at the finish. Nice carb, full mouthfeel, a little dry and acidity. I could drink a lot of this!
