kto (538) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 9, 2016
0.33l bottle from a sri lankan shop in bern. pours a hazy very dark chestnut with a steady beige head and a nice lacing. aroma of alcohol, toasted malts, cinnamon, caramel. flavour of alcohol, nuts, bread, bacon, slightly sour espresso. dry bitter finish. alcohol feels foreign and unnatural, as if in a beer-vodka cocktail.

Pours pitch black with a medium beige head. Bittersweet taste with a roasty, licorice nose.

The wonderful flavors from the Guinness are still there, but unfortunately they’re drowned in alcoholic sweetness that take over and disturbs the balance.

Hopverdju (210) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Van ‘t vat. Ja, tochwel… special export van’t vat! Zwart bier met witte wandklevende schuimkraag. Geur: zoetig, toffee, boter babbelaars. Smaak: verrassend zoetig. Alcoholisch. Volmondig. Slechts in de afdronk wat bitterheid.

Not to be confused with regular Guinness! Multiple bottles bought at beerstore in Mol Belgium. If you like normal Guinness, you will love this defo. Easy accessible stout but with a much richer palate then the normal Guiness and a higher abv. One of my favorites.

Imaena (2144) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle. This is for sale in Mozambique if you look in the high end delis - you will pay $5 per bottle but its the best brew available by far. Nice thick roasted dry stout with a little more residual warmth than your usual guinness. Excellent beer.

Mijn lievelings stout, lekker zwart en smokerige smaak. Van een pint kan je heel lang van genieten.

bhensonb (13224) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Bottle at Cafe Karpershoek. Pours dark brown/black with a beige head. Aroma of smooth dark malt with a bit of hop. Flavor starts treacle. Very. This is not dry. Seems quite different from what we get in the U.S. of A.

avw1982 (99) - Giessenburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2015
Very dark, almost completely black. Nice thick head and it also gives nice lacing. Aroma is fresh and light. Taste is quite bitter but chocolate. Also roast and maybe a bit burned. Not bad, have a few so going to enjoy some more.

Pim_zom (4) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2015 does not count
Export stout. Caramel zoet roast aroma, komt later pas echt goed los. Volle smaak, helaas te veel koolzuur, mooi gebrand droge nasmaak met mooi zacht Dublin water profiel!! Gebrand bittere, rozijn nasmaak van de mout, koffie
