Bottle purchased in Japan: Dark black, light head, nice light tan head. The nose is full and thick with sweet roast and pleasant light alcohol. Soy and maple, lots of vanilla and wood. The flavor is nice and full, fairly acidic and bitter vs the other guinness varieties. Decent.

Solid nice tasting strong burnt malt taste, very enjoyable. But not at all like the original thing in Ireland. Heavy all the way on the malt but more watery than draught or the nitro-bottle/cans. Still good even if not as good as the original - just different.

Pours a big brownish head and is darker than normal Guinness I believe, but there is a picture right there so you be the judge I suppose. The beer itself is syrupy and slightly sweet, and smooth. Lots of molasses taste in there. Some coffee and a lot of really roasty malts. Definitely better than any of the other extra stouts.

Glass in Paris. Looks excellent in the glass, smells all pretty like too. Taste hits you on the first sip, though it became admittedly harder and harder to drink till the bottom. Impressive though and plan to try again.
