2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Angus O'Tools, Phuket. I feel a little guilty rating this beer in Asia as it does taste a little better in the UK and in Ireland for sure, but the pint in front of me is far from bad! Light aroma with a deep mahogany pour, frothy head and some lacing. Typical Stout, typical Guinness! All the taste comes from the malt but there's a hint of bitterness which is more noticeable in the Asian version. It has a nice, smooth, lingering palate with a hint of caramel, but we all know that don't we. It's a Guinness and exactly what we have grown to know and mostly love!

Guinness Extra Stout is quite simply "fizzy Guinness Draught"
Itís a great drink. Highly enjoyable. Itís the perfect drink to have beside you during a football or hurling match.
The only fault I have for it, is that the appearance isít great. I would prefer if there was a nice head on it that stayed longer. The head in Guinness Extra Stout doesnít last long. But overall this is a drink I highly recommend.

Pours dark red almost black. With a tan head aroma of roasted barley coffee and chocolate. Taste is the same with a hop bitter finish that is not overwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Impressive black color with thin white head. Aroma is roasted malt and water. Taste is more roasted malt and water. Very drinkable. Slighty better than the usual Guinness Draught.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tescos. Pours black but with some reddish clarity. Looks quite light with a huge off white foam head. Nose is very ale fruity, bit of roasted malt, lactic creaminess, but very little chocolate or coffee. First surprise is that this is light as an ale, no thickness in mouth at all. Taste is ale malt fruity, caramel, roasted malt and on the finish itís liquorice, and that Guinness creaminess. Grows on the palate, but I prefer thicker and more sweetness and earthiness/minerally.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
56,8cl bottle at Slatteryís in Dublin. Pours black with a beige head. Lightly roasted malt aroma with some hops and hints of caramel, dark chocolate and coffee. Medium body and medium carbonation. Sweet and malty with a lightly bitter finish. Quite different from the draft (nitro) Guinness. (2011-06-11)

Enjoyedt his more that Guinness Draught. I know this might be sacrilegious, but I donít even care for Draught that much. This was a good stout, with a solid malt backbone. Black in color with a small foamy coffee like froth/head.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black colourt with a thin head. Citrus hops and a toasted aroma top the thin mouthfeel. Roasted malt flavor was dry without bitterness. No real depth, but not bad.
