3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A snort of bittersweet malty chocolate. Pungently bitter black-coffee roastiness. Bit of a watery body, but still as luxurious and flavour-packed as some Dubbels twice its strength.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a red gleam. Fluffy light brown head. Sweet and light roasted aroma. Quite bland. Flavour of light roast, light chocolate and some herbal notes. Is surprisingly thin bodied and has a quite watery texture. Roasty light bitter end. Had expected more.

can. God bless the woman who goes on vacation in Dublin and brings back beer for me. Pours black/red I guess, with a giant creamy tan head that will not go away. Aroma is slightly sour, chocolatey. It resembles a bigger version of Guinness Draught more than it does the Extra Stout that is brewed in Canada. A lot more sourness is evident here. Itís almost puckering. The finish is sweet of burned chocoalte. Mouthfeel is very smooth, not to the point of nitrogen, but pretty silky, none-the-less.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours black with a tan head, burnt aromas, and a very burnt and bitter taste, coffee, and some chocolate tastes also present. Whilst not as good as the Foreign Export Guinness this is jolly decent and a much cheaper and more interesting alternative to the creamy bland Guinness youíll find just about everywhere else in the world.

275 ml bottle. Very high burnt taste. Almost no bitter after taste. Really nice dark beer. If I could get this one instead of the Draught, It would be a regular in my fridge.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Strong yeasty aroma. The famous black appearance with sheepy head. Flavour of charcoal syrup with a balance bitter after taste. I enjoyed this bottle. I dont think you can go wrong with Guinness, like marmite you either love it or hate it.
