I thought this beer was similar to another Guinness (Draugh) but some features change like for example its bitterness. It’s similar to coffee but less intense. It has almost the same aroma, resin and chocolate and its body is creamy with its particular black color.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a monstrous sizing of creamy foamed head while the stout was a pitch black color. Aroma is strongly influenced by roast malt with a background of heavy whipping cream. The flavor is rich with a deep roast malt profile that tastes like the regular Guinness except on steroids because much more alcohol is detected. This is much easier to drink than the regular extra stout but then again this isn’t a good session ale like the regular Guinness. Glad they only sell this in a 4-pack because I felt like a goner after drinking my 4th.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque. Thick head with good retention. Nice lacing. Not much aroma. A little bit of coffee. Coffee and chocolate undertones in the flavor. A little subtler than the more famous Guinness stout. Smooth, creamy on the palette. Very nice.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The most amazing Irish stout beer that I tasted, and one of the greatest to me, also the first stout tasted. Anyway, this beer have a very nice aroma, including chocolate, coffee and caramel. The appereance is black, very black in deed, a clear, but with a little hazy/cloudy semblance, the head is very large, frothy and creamy, being this, maybe the great atractive of this beer. It have lower sweetness and a lightly sour touch for the taste, being a good combination to keep and producing a great sensation in the mouth.
Full bodied, with a thick/creamy texture and very fizzy, with a bitter and and a little astringent finish, giving a cool sensation after the drop. Very drinkable and great for a cold winter afternoon or a rainy day in the summer.
Oysters and Guinness is a combination of world-class!
