3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 0,65ltr: Opaque black colored brew with an sweet bitter taste with an well hidden sournesh. Hints of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and caramel. This one is brewed at Guinness Cameroun and bought it in the Hague at Africa Products Shop, Spui 231. Handy with an Nigerian girlfriend to find this kind of shops, extra handy if they sell African beers for foreign ticks.

0.65 l bottle from local supermarket in Paris. Colour is black and the head is light brown and won’t die away. Yes, Extra Stout is better than the common version called draught. This version has more hops than the one available in Ireland. Probably to hide the high amount of alcohol. The result is a nice dry taste combined with the usual Guinness experience. No, I’m not working for them.

Interesting but kinda old school but I guess that should be expected with an old classic. Full bodied, creamy roast coffee and barley.

This is a world class beer using an old Irish recipe which has the wort/mash exposed to wild yeasts. This along with the use of high quality barley malts and enough hopping to please an American palate makes this beer a surprise find from the Guinness Brewery which is owned by the Diageo Group (read Smirnoff). The beer is made to transport and because of this cellars very well and even bottle conditions which producing a great Irish stout.
