4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 March, 2003.Good yeasty nose like a Belgium beer. The initial impression is the deep smooth creaminess, then the fruits come through - very wet and juicy, packing a good raspberry punch. The salty bitterness follows - intensely tangy. This is nothing like the standard Guinness. I can see why the Nigerians in London donít drink the London brewed Guinness. This is intense! [4.3]
Christmas Day, 2004: I bought a bottle for my son, and we shared it on Christmas Day. I have grown to love this beer. I have compared it to other versions of Guinness, and this always comes out on top. [4.4]
March, 2005 I donít know if it is because of the sorghum or because the beer is unfiltered - so, effectively bottle-conditioned - but the Nigerian Guinness realy is one of the worldís most splendid beers. Dark bitter chocolate and bitter herbs in a soft sweet chocolate base. Refreshing red wine acidity. Everything and more. [4.8]

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from tesco, 310307.
Pours with a a frothy head which quickly disipates. Aroma is almost chocolate/coffee. And the taste is rather surprising, to me it tastes like sultanas and dried fruit, very nice and not unpleasant.
I am assuming this beer was bottle conditioned too as it had sediment on the bottom of the bottle.
All in all probably one of the best stouts Iíve ever had, and what Guinness should be like!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a pitch black with a lovly natural tan head. Aroma features a massive creamy caramel milkshake character, confected and unique. On the palate there is a woody note, warm alcohol then bitter sweet caramel thats rich but is cut by a sharp dry finish that prevents it from being cloying, like spicy xmas pudding with brandy sauce. World class.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Tesco. Very dark/black colour with lovely beige head. Complex aroma of coffee, vanilla and rich dried fruit. Taste is initially smooth with fruit tones then a superb long and bitter finish comes through. Very well balanced and a superb effort.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2003 This was the only beer that they served at a Nigerian bar I visited. I drank 2L of it. The ABV is a lot stronger in this version than the one you can get in the States.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled: Pitch black coloured. Huge chocolatish head saying "Drink me". Malts, molasses, vanilla and alcahol in the nose. Smoked, roasted and sweet flavour. Smooth. Marvellous biting bitterness in the end. Can still feel it 2 hours after I drank the beer. Yummy. Much more potent than the ordinary Guinness. Me like.

VEry awesome, the aroma is like sweet and like coffee, but that is how the Extra Stout is, I like it. The flavor is great too, very sweet but strong in character.

Been a while since I tried this now as itís fairly uncommon (though regular Foreign Extra is now widely available.) Came in a 600ml bottle from Tesco for £2.99.
Pours pitch black with a thin, dark tan head. Taste I can remember being that of strong chocolate and coffee, with a lasting bitter aftertaste. A very smooth bber, carbonated, but not too much. Full body and a smooth texture, certainly one of the nicest stouts Iíve tried. Also much nicer than Guinness Original and Guiness Draught, aswell as being better than the standard Foreign Extra in my opinion.

Znakomity Guinness, nie wiem czy nie lepszy od orginału z Irlandii. Palony i gożki słůd miesza się z odrobiną słodyczy. Piwo jest tak samo nie przepuszczające światło jak irlandczyk. Brązowawa piana jest gęsta i trwała, a do tego utrzymuje się do końca konsompcji. Jedno z lepszych piw Afrykańskich z jakim miałem doczynienia
