4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, one finger tan head. No swirling carbonation like normal Guinness.
Dark fruit, fruit cake mix, dates, molasses/brown sugar.
Sweet molasses, rich fruit, hint of peppery spice.
Rich, thick, well carbonated but not too lively. Longish bitter finish.
Lovely, complex stout. Much richer, sharper and flavoursome than standard Guinness.

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 330ml bottle (only 99p from B and M!)
I drank this chilled because its very refreshing like that on a hot day.
Nice rocky light brown head and all the taste that you’d expect from Guinness but sweeter. Be careful if you have a lot of these lying around. Its far too easy to drink.

Pitch black color, creamy head...strong aromas of roasted malt and some balanced hops. Mouthful, creamy, a bit bland but an overall pleasant beer.

33cl can bought back from Hong Kong. Stated at 6.8% ABV. Poured into a tulip glass. Aroma heavy in malts and some coffee. Medium carbonation. Decent light tan coloured head which dissipates and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Very dark brown to black colour. Malt, roasted barley, slightly nutty and bitter flavour. Some acidity left on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Immediate chocolate notes with alcohol which pours dark as expected.
Definitely more bite than regular Guinness varietals. definitely a bit more sharp in the hops and definitely more expensive than Regular guiness
Rich and satisfying but the chocolate notes seems to have a tad raw element possibly artificial.
Better than Guiness varietals that have come along, good but nothing to rave about. Would love to try the real deal in Dublin one day as part of my bucket list of beers

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Very dark brown color, almost black, average sized brownish head. Some lacing. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Aroma of coffee, roast and malts. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. After mediocre Guinness Extra Stout and Guinness Draught, this is really a nice surprise.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another one that I’ve forgot to rate. Pours a deep black color, topped with a frothy tan head. Pleasant roasty aroma with some caramel in the back as well. The taste is slightly sweet in the beginning, creamy, followed by some roasty notes and decent bitterness. There’s some caramel as well. Nice aftertaste, lasting. Great.
