4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Gorgeous looking black with fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, anise, slight tangy note. Taste is sweet chocolate, smoke, malt. The bitterness carries it through, knocking out the sweetness. Thereís a faint sour citrus note Iím getting. Medium-bodied, smoothly carbonated. Always enjoy getting a bottle of this, Guinness like my uneducated palate used to know, bitter and roasty.

Why oh why was my former rating nuked? Iíll settle that score later... but here i sit relaxing in the shade at theresort and this glorious elixer is brought to me. Straight from the bottle is the Centeal American way. So turn your noses up if you woll but if you do, you are a knuckle draggin biscuit suckin hick. Dark syruppy malt nose. Bitterness follows suit and stays steady.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at #x shitty tasting in Belgrade. Really dark brown, lingering foam, Guinness color is best I can say. Malty syrup, a little roast. Enough of a guinness stout flavor but really quite syrupy and sweet. Body is really strange but flavor is quite fine. Dry malty finish, solid. Tasty.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Intense black color with a dense, frothy, light brown foam.
Smell: Very malty and sweet.
Aroma: Intense notes of chocolate and coffee. Hints of citrus, ripe banana and smoke.
Taste: First, there is only the sweetness, which gets more and more intense. At its height, the bitterness kicks in and balances the sweetness perfectly. There is a light sourness all the way through. This gives some freshness.
Palate: Beer has a full body and has a creamy and sticky mouth feel. The carbonation is just right. The pleasant bitterness is quite long lasting.
Overall: For people who like the standard Guinness Draught, this is a very nice change for special days. It has the typical Guinness character with a special kick.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 l bottle from íSaveur BiŤreí, brewed in Ireland, bottled in July or August 2015. Clear, very dark red to black with a medium large, dense, almost stable, brown head. Faint, roasty-malty, slightly fruity aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and raisins. Sweetish, roasty-malty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, licorice and hints of raisins, followed by a short, roasty-bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. The aroma lacks a bit of intensity but otherwise this is quite good.
