1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
27.5 cL bottle. Pours black as it should, creamy white head, as it should. But rather quickly disappearing. Aroma is only vague malty but sticky sweet. The do produce cane sugar on the island, I assume a lot of that has gone into this brew. Slight earthy aroma as well. Not the most pleasant aroma imho. Flavour is honestly just bad: sticky sweet and sour bitter at once with a sticky bitter finish. This is FAR from the normal Guinness, but it seems to be popular on the island - it’s available everywhere. I guess the Barbadians find this a good match to the sweet cajun food.

A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted bread and malt. The flavor is nicely roasted with notes of smoke and roasted bread. It really gives You the warmth - it is almost so thick that You have to chew it. A really nice beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Irish version: Fat, tar-like opaque beer. Brownish, thick cappuchino-like head. Extremely potent and rich with lots of bitterness - from both hops and malts. A bit difficult to finish. 230302
(Bottle) Cameroon version: Pitch black with a brownish head. Roasted, malty nose - and a strange, indefinable not so pleasant smell. Surprisingly light-bodied, sweetish malt but yet rather dry. The notes of the burned malt are rather subdued - sort of a "stout light", but not at all unpleasant. 5/4/7/3/12=3,1 170705

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 Bottled (Cameroon version). Dark brown colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is sweetness meeting toffee, roasted malts and some coffee. Very sweet flavour, with caramel and roast a long way under the sweetness. Alcohol is also to be noted in the sweetness. Quite different Guinness FES, and definitively different than the Nigerian version. Sticky palate. 6 5 5 3 11
Canned (Mauritius version, 7.5%). Quite much deep amber colour with mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is rather sweet malty, grainy as well as some mild roasted notes. Flavour is also quite much the same. Not very pleasant 5 3 5 3 10.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Cockney Pub, Århus
Black color; big head. Ordinary roasted malt aroma, mild; I give it a political 6. Good body structure, roasted malt flavor, maybe too much in the end, but overall quite balanced. Anyway, not impressive.
