4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a good three fingers of sticky brown head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is burnt bread, molasses, and chocolate. Taste is molasses and dry malts with waves of hop and dark chocolate bitterness that leads to a good, full finish. This is a fine beer, and much better than extra stout or draught. Fairly priced for what it is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Black as night, 2 finger of dark mocha head that turns to a lighter color as it starts to slowly sink.
S - Roasted cocoa, molasses, a smoked turkey cold cut kind of aroma(good), earthy coffee grinds, brown bread, caramelized brown sugar.
T - Charred molasses, toasted brown sugar, roasted malt comes in strong toward the middle, sugary coffee coats the entire mouth, unknown peppery spice, has a sour fruit characteristic toward the finish. Finishes very dry for all the malty sweetness.
M - Full bodied, luscious feel, moderate creamy carbonation, alcohol is present but fits and plays well with all of itís counterparts.
This is the Guinness that you dream of. A full and robust stout. Complex and extremely tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of burnt, charcoaly malts and a little aniseed. Texture is a bit watery and the flavour does not come through so well. Overall the mouthfeel is quite rough and unrefined. The bitterness is prominent and the alcohol is also present. Thereís a bittersweet, treacley background in there somewhere.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle from Riviera Restaurant, Selsey] Dark brown with a light brown head and a light fizz. Fruity up front, then coffee, roasted malt and smoke develop, A little dryness too. The finish Is on the bitter, burnt side, but overall itís a very decent stout, worlds away from the standard Guinness!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Apple skin nose, roasted
malts, slight ash and campfire.   Ash and campfire are more noticeable on the tongue.   Smooth, but not coating,
roasted malt flavor.   Low hop, moderate malt base.   Fairly enjoyable.   Apple or Pear fruit skin flavor is
fairly assertive, after the roastiness.   Semi-sweet lactose finish.   It reminds me of a milk stout for some reason.
Better than I anticipated.
