3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sou suspeito para falar, pois nao e meu estilo favorito de cerveja. Cerveja preta ( cevada torrada e lúpulo forte) com media formação de espuma, essa de coloração creme, levemente adocicada com o final forte. Baixa carbonatacao, aroma suave mas intenso devido a cevada torrada. guinness, sempre guinness.

Pitch black color. Chocolate and coffee present on the aroma. Classic Guinness taste, with roast profiles, traces of coffee, chocolate, with a dry trendency. The mouthfeel is quite creamy and silky. Bitter ending.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black bodied. Simple perhaps but a nice dark sweetness to this. Thicker than expected. Brown sugar, bit simple again but itís appealing to me somehow. Drinks easily, short aftertaste. Not bad at all! (33cl bottle from an Asian food store in Tours)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
poured from a chilled 11.2 ounce bottle into a 12 ounce english pint shaped glass. oddly, reading the bottleís back label, it states "malt liquor" to the right of "product of ireland". it also says "enjoyed by millons around the world".
what TF ever, man, this is super tasty so make that millons plus 1.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Smoky and roasted aroma. Has a milk chocolate like reducing head which doesnít hang in there (unlike the standard Guinness). The liquid has a black tar like appearance. The taste is very bitter, malty, dark fruit and dark chocolate like leaving a slight burning sensation at the back of your throat after the swallow. It is also very full bodied and chewy. Overall an excellent foreign stout that would go great with beef stews or heavy puddings.
