330 ml bottle purchased at the Westmere Beverage Center (Albany, New York) on September 18, 2012. Dark brown, small head. Sweet malted barley aroma, fudge notes. the taste is the same, with a touch of alcohol, bitter coffee. This is way better then the Draught!

Better than their extra stout, this has a little more depth to it with a rich coffee taste that doesn’t have a lot of bitterness to it.

Bottle, black with a fine thin beige head, light red fruit tartness and coffee on the nose, umami dryness, burnt-bitter, hints of gravy and plum, some roast coffee and a sourish almost acrid bitter finish.

A black beer with a tan head. Very thick and creamy body, like a complete meal. Some coffee, dough and malts in the aroma and flavour. A bit bitter taste, but a very nice beer.

Finally had this brew in bottle at wob cap hill. Big malt up front. Way more than reg guinness. Still full bodied and smooth, but with a slight skunk taste which I’m not crazy about.

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!

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.
