2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. Amber with small head. Sweet with light malt, and slightly medicinal. I donít know what else to say about this. Other than the slightly unpleasant flavor, Itís just extremely boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Moderate bitter sweet malt aroma. Dark amber color with a medium white head. Some weird egg smell right before taking a sip. Mild sweet throughout with a very light bitterness that builds in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle stamped 05:40-L2245G00002. It pours mahogany brown with an off-white head that lingers for the entire session. The aroma has the infamous Guinness dark malt scent but toned down a little and a nutty note. The body is creamy and just below medium. The taste has a slight sweetness at first and then an explosive acidic bitterness on the tail end. A lot like the Foreign Stout with a slight punch. Nothing extraordinary about it but relatively easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz bottle - pours clear and dark amber with offwhite head and great lacing. Nose is floral hops. Flavor adds generic maltiness. Modately bitter with light sweetness. Decent overall but quite generic. I picture myself drinking this while eating fried fish and chips while halfheartedly caring about a rugby team on tv, as long as the price is right.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep caramel color with a couple fingers of eggshell foam. Aromas are pure maltiness with an ever so slight cardboard stale hop presence. On the palate its alot of the same, nothing overly off putting just a stale malty beer without any great flavors. Touch of bitterness on the finish cleans up the caramel sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better Guinness brews, Dark amber brown, clear, color. Good balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Like a ESB IMO.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild sweet caramel aroma, pours a reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Mild caramel taste, with a hint of spices, very thin mouthfeel. Not much going on here, itís a drinkable beer, but Iím not going to pass up the myriad of better Christmas ales that are out now.
