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 ’Saveur Bière’, 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.
