UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 33cl bottle, Italy. Label says 5 instead of 4.3 ABV. Black with a foamy head, different from the fine, creamy one of the draught Guinness. Aroma and taste are also different, sweeter and less toasted. Some coffee and hops in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a thick fluffy, light brown head and some good lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel with a hint of smoke. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, cocoa and a mild earthy bitterness. Minerally and slightly sweet. Unfortunately this leaves a lot to be desired, itís not that good.
