Bottle at home. Pours dark brown to black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is roasty with some dark chocolate also. Flavor follows and is very smooth. This is a very nice beer, better than the regular stuff.

Licorice aroma with moderate amounts of roast on the nose. Dark brown appearance with a thick tan head. Flavor is sweet with moderate bitterness on the end note. Fruity ester level is high. Medium full body with medium carbonation. Overall, it matches the style well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 275 ml bottle since I had no glass at hand. Nice roasted coffee aromas. Strong, astringent bitter coffee taste that leaves a long lingering burned flavor in the mouth. High carbonation but still a lightly creamy mouthfeel. Definitely differs from the Irish version of it! Good beer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is dark roast coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Roasted coffee, coca, vanilla bean, and caramel for flavors. Definitely more roasted and stronger than regular Guinness. I really enjoyed this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown to black with a slight tan head. The aroma is very pleasant of the roasted barley. Its consistency is somewhat thick and oily leaving residue on the sides of the glass. It is smooth and slides over the tongue but much of the flavor is lost. Most of the taste comes after you swallow when the faint flavor of the roasted barley hits the back of your throat. It isnít harsh but lacks a fuller flavor that doesnít linger in your mouth for very long. It was OK but I would have preferred a fuller flavor.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many bottles all over St. Lucia. Brewed in St. Lucia. Certainly the best Guinness Iíve had, as Iíd heard and expected. Dark pour, much bolder flavors than the usual Guinness Iím used to. Slightly sweeter in the finish, but stronger/bolder up front. Really enjoyable; wish it was easier to find in the states.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Black body with a medium beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of fig, pumpkin and treacle. Flavour of soy sauce, dark chocolate and tangy black cherry. Tastes boozier than 7.5% ABV. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. An interesting beer. Not sure if I could drink more than one though.
