1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle from Teshcos. Pours black with foamy ivory head. Very light malt aroma. Taste is mild roast, light coffee with a fair carbonation. Remarkably bland with a watered-down Guinness character. Really quite disappointing it’s hard to imagine anyone getting much enjoyment from this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classy evening in with my 13.5% extra free tin of Guinness Original XX Extra Stout, watching ’Hobo with a Shotgun’. Very dark brown, big foamy tan head, light lacing. Aroma is smoke, yeast, smoked ham, some chorizo and earth. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste has more smoked ham, molasses, spice and yeast. Pretty good. Better than Guinness Draft anyway.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dark malts and coffee. Well heated shows hint of diacetyl. Deep black, clear color with red reflection - something like coke. Medium, creamy foam, subsides quite fast with little lacing. In taste there is coffee and hint caramel. Some sour note. Bitterness is on medium level to high. Lasts rather long. Ashy, phloemy aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass
Aroma- Has a rich malt aroma
Appearance- Pours a blackish brown like dirty motor oil with a medium sized tan head.
Taste- Big malt flavor, the beer goes down nice and smooth
Palate- This is a medium bodied moderately carbonated beer with a thick syrupy texture
Overall- a really good stout, that is very easy to find. A great beer for those who are not used to stouts to give a try.
