Bottle. Roasted malt aroma. Black beer with a large beige head. The taste is dark roasted malts and hops. The hops are quite bitter and resinous. A nice addition to the Guinness extract. It is medium bodied and smooth. A very good Foreign stout.

28.03.2015. 0,325l Bottle. Bought in Copenhagen summer 2014. Black colour with off-white head. Aroma of red berries, coffee and liqorice. Sharp aroma. Taste and mouthfeel is a little weaker. Flavour of coffee and liqorice and berries. But its a little thin. Low on bitterness. There is some strange flavours here.

Det må jeg sige! En fantastisk lækker unik mørk oplevelse. Uhm :-) Fedt at prøve denne udgave af en Guinness... Mørk mørk bitter sort lakrids toner - så fuglene synger!

Kolor - czarny, chyba klarowny. Piana - drobna, beżowa, średnio wysoka, średnio trwała. Zapach - wyraźny palono-kawowy, aż za mocny. Smak - potwornie mocna nuta kawowo-czekoladowa, palone, z nutką kwaskowatą, średnio słodkie, mocna goryczka. Gęste, wręcz oleiste. W zasadzie nie smakowało mi. Za mocne. W składzie sorgo (proso).

Tried this’d at the Berlin beer festival was told most Guinness is brewed in Nigeria due to the river having the same iron content as the liffy don’t know how true it was, but a very drinkable effort non the less creamy and more malty than regular Guinness.

Sampled from a bottle. Black colour with a firm tan head. Charred aroma. The taste is strongly of charred wood, with lots of coffee and liquorice along with the smoky flavours. Very dry and bitter finish. Slightly strange notes of cabbage in the taste - is that the sorghum? A good strongly-flavoured version and high ABV version of the classic Guinness.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with a nice fawn head. Nose - charcoal, smoke generally, savoury, umami and soy sauce Taste - liquid fossil fuels running into soy sauce again. Palate - medium bodied with a dry but thin texture and a dry smoky finish. Overall - a bit odd but very complex.

ERB92 (472) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2014
Licorice, soy sauce, brown sugar, chocolate and a hint of coffee in the aroma almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium to full body with a average carbonation. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Overall not to bad but a bit to carbonated.

325ml bottle from Tesco. Pours black, tan head. Liquorice, dark sugar, soy sauce. Taste is light sweet, more soy, light salty sour. Intriguing.
