4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 330 ml bottle from Shinanoya @ Shibuya. Pours dark brown with a nice brownish head - and that head stays. Aroma is completely unbelievable - sweet dried dark fruits, roasted bread, melon. Love it! You get the same flavours also in taste - plus many more. There is some burnt bread, dried fig fruit - ending up in a long, bitter and dry aftertaste. I like this on much more than usual Guinness, too bad this one is not so easy to find! Will definitely drink it again!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown beer with a medium sized, beige head on top that leaves fairly quick and leaves little lacing. Aroma is light coffee, chocolate and molasses. Flavour is bitter with chocolate notes and has decent carbo going on. Flavour lasts long and bitter. Thick, creamy and oily mouthfeel. Quite ok.

Can from Bohemia shared thanks to hornydevil. Pours dark with a tan head. Big roasty aroma. Tastes like ash. A bit too roasty for me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
this brew has body, dimension and taste so itís gotta be at least a 4. flavor of bubblegum like a guinness but with a roasted chestnut bite and bitters like a citrus but not citrusy. tastes dark indeed with just the right highlight of smoke. fuller body that is creamy and makes you want to chew it. the good stuff!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black, tan foam one finger head. Aroma is milky coffee, dark chocolate with alcohol kick. Any sweetness is overpowered by astringent bitterness. So much so to make it unbalanced. Very mild coffee notes, more burnt malts. ABV is not well masked. Nice carbonation for a Guinness but overall disappointing

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is my favourite beer at the moment. The aroma, taste, basically everything about it is awesome. Lovely coffee overtones with a slight hint of chocolate and a lovely slight bitter finish makes this an awesome stout

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I thought this beer was similar to another Guinness (Draugh) but some features change like for example its bitterness. Itís 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.
