harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled date: unk Part of a three part Guinness-off. A: pours a deep brown ale with 1.5 fingers of peanut colored head. This clings to the glass as it falls over a couple minutes to a tortuous sheet of the same. Good, cobweb lacing. S: caramel, copper, roasted malts, sweet malts, hints of earthy hops. Hints of nougat. T: Subdued hops of earthy nature, and a nice hearty backbone of malts are here. Plenty of earthy, soily malts are prominent. Hints of vanilla on copper, too much copper. M: Heavy body with moderate carb. Dry finish causes me to want to hawk loogies. O: Not really enticing to me. The flavor is too metallic, the mouthfeel is off. Serving type: bottle 07-08-2011

ruigo (1241) - PORTUGAL - DEC 10, 2013
A black beer with a tan head. Very thick and creamy body, like a complete meal. Some coffee, dough and malts in the aroma and flavour. A bit bitter taste, but a very nice beer.

JDBaker11058 (1358) - Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Appearance: pours like a traditional Guinness Extra Stout, North American version--the usual dark brown pour with a rocky, foamy dark tan head. Aroma: roast dominates, with a hint of wet granite and a surprising nutty note. Taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, roast coffee, slightly burnt nuts, toasted black bread. Finish: slight minerality and lingering roasty notes, with a hint of herbal hops. Notes: There was a palpable difference between this and all the other Guinness varieties Iíve tried. Namely, the slight nuttiness and a bit of mineral water character in the finish. Extreme drinkability was of course consistent. Cool, fat screwtop bottle brought back from Scotland by Zoltan.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Appearance: Dark ruby/brown with finger thick ivory/tan head. Aroma: Roast, burnt notes, bread/toast and grassy. Taste: Low/medium sweetness and sourness with medium bitterness. Palate: Light smooth texture and body, average/prickly carbonation, lingering dry bitter burnt finish. Comments: Tasty and glass lace.

Moscicki (129) - Tarnow, POLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Good stout. When Iím in need I can always count on it since the quality is very repetetive and you can find it literally everywher in the world. However itís loosing with any homebrewed stout I know.

Holmen1 (2766) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 0,33 flaske 5% fra supermercadoen i Elviria: det lille som er av aroma har naturligvis et lett rÝstet preg. Smaken er slank, tÝrr og med en lett syrlighet men egentlig ganske sŚ intetsigende. Guinness har en ufortjent stor plass i markedet. Lett Ś drikke og ganske lett Ś glemme.

artyom (513) - Osijek, CROATIA - NOV 2, 2013
0,33l bottle. Dark brown color with beige and quickly disappearing head. Aroma is roasted barley. Taste is roasted barley and coffee. Nice and balanced stout, but nothing more than that.

derBreslauer (137) - Wroclaw, POLAND - NOV 2, 2013
