MoritzF (8862) - Ottobrunn, - OCT 15, 2012
(bottle, 32.5cl, 7.5% abv) Black colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Roasty, almost burned malty, leathery and leafy aroma with hints of alcohol, dark chocolate and subtle berry-fruity notes. Roasty bitter and delicately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a discreet carbonation. Roasty malt-character with dark chocolate, leather and burnt rubber; roasty bitter finish with rough burnt flavours. Not perfectly harmonic but likeable Stout. 15.X.12

PapaVillum (700) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
325 ml, flaske, 7,5 % ABV, BB: 29/09/15, købt i en afrikansk kælderbutik ved Viktoriagade på Vesterbro, 12. august 2015. Sort halvtyk "olie" eller Foreign Stout, som den står listet som. Større moccafarvet skumkrone på 3-4 cm tykkelse, svinder til gardiner, landskaber samt kan og overflade efter en halv snes minutter. Aroma af solidt ristet malt og sojasauce. Skunky. Senere fremkommer noter af røde bær. Let syrlig smag i indledningen, hvorefter en solid "mørk" ristet bitterhed overtager. Det syrlige er nærmest lidt citrus-agtigt i begyndelsen, men bliver dernæst til mere frugtagtige noter. Overordnet: let syrlig, let sød og middel bitter. Intet salt. Kroppen er middel til rund, og karboneringen på et middel niveau. Cremet konsistens. Eftersmagen er kort og middel bitter. Dette bryg åbner sig langsomt og smager derfor bedre efter at have stået og sat sig. OK stout, som er mere frugtagtig og frisk end forventet.

Pours a dark brown color, almost black, topped with a decent tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malt asome notes of coffee. Taste starts sweet and malty, roasty presence and some coffee as well. A little soy sauce in there. Not bad, but I prefer the original one.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle at Guinn’s house thanks to Casey - a bottle he had saved since 2005, I believe. Pours dark black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is iron, malty, chocolate, burnt malts. Very interesting. Very different from other versions I’ve had. Really interesting. Thankful to have tried this. Good beer.

TheCametron (2116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle after bottle at Kenny’s Island. Pours Black with a tan head. Aroma of burnt sugar, roasted malt and cake dough. It’s full flavoured perhaps a little on the sweet side but bursting with character. Chocolate, raisins, stewed prunes and boooze. Nice powdery bitterness on the end. Delicious.

leebotton (333) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Big and Black with a beautiful, thick, strong choccoccino head. Big molassesy aroma with some liquorice and a subtle sort of ice-creaminess (probably marmite flavoured ice cream!). The flavour is heavily malty, of course as the Nigerians love their non-alcoholic malt drinks which are ’strong’ in a sense anyway, this Guinness is for the bad men, strong in so many ways! The malt is overpowering with liqorice and creamy tobacco flavours but there’s a noticeable hop backbone too but which has been completely overpowered by the malt, which is cool, because this is more of a tasty alcoholic malt drink than it is just a beer and it really does encapsulate (but also corrupts) something very prominent about Nigerian culture.

Very interesting stout! I got talking to a Nigerian chap in the Tesco beer isle & he pointed me towards this style of Guinness which I’d never encountered before. Extra Stout has a very big Flavour - it’s definitely not a subtle beer. It’s slightly more viscous than bottled Guinness Original. 7.5% alcohol volume compared to 4.2% volume of Guinness Original. Appearance - think liquid Marmite. The very bitter maltiness dominates with a tantalising hint of licorice, burnt coffee, dark bitter chocolate & molasses. There is also a fruity hint a little like prune juice, (the Sorghum perhaps?) I really didn’t know what to make of it on the first bottle, or the second, I really started warming to it by the 3rd and appreciating all the complex subtastes. By the 4th bottle I was hooked. I would love to try this as a draught! Excellent job Guinness / Nigeria - this will take some beating.
