McSherman (313) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2015
Tiefschwarz mit recht beständigem hellbraunem Schaum. Geruch: Tolle Aromen von Röstmalz, Karamell, getrocknete Früchte. Sehr einladend! Geschmacklich beginnt das Bier mit einer leichten Süße und einer Aromenvielfalt von stark geröstetem Malz, Kaffee, Schokolade, Rauch. Sehr komplex! Dazu gesellt sich eine leichte Bitterkeit, die einen langen Abklang einleitet. Dazu eine wunderbar passende ölige Textur. Empfehlung!

Aroma: toasted malts, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. Appearance: black, medium, creamy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, yet some sweetness as well, intense toasted malts, chocolate, dry cacao, coffee, dry finish. Overall: nice Foreign Stout - is this really any better than the other Guinness FE, can’t really tell. Bottle from Utobeer, London Bridge.

Salmaneser (63) - BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown, almost black beer and brown head. Strong aroma, roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, coffee, mokka and some dark fruits. Taste starts off sweet, followed by bitterness and some sourness. Palate is too lively, should be more creamy.

minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours black with generous off-white head. Taste is rich and smooth with a nice sweetness ahead of bitter roasted malts. Hardly recognisable as Guinness, beefed up with flavour and infinitely more drinkable. This is Guinness brewed to it’s full potential.

Woc (50) - BELGIUM - MAY 11, 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.

Bottle. Black body, creamy light brown head. Aroma of coffee, Hazelnut, chocolate. Malt heavy taste , elements of roast and cocoa. Soft bitter finish. A bit more of everything compared to the regular G

huineman (395) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Pours dark brown. Tan head. Smells of caramel, moka, chocolate, iodine, meat sauce, soy sauce, tobacco... Creamy and full-bodied. Powerful, with a long bitter finish that brings back coffee and soy taste. Rich and complex.

Scopey (8816) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Keg at Delirium. It pours jet black with a decent tan head. The nose is rich roast, molasses, liquorice, earthy, maltesers and chocolate. The taste is rich roast, bitter-sweet, molasses, earthy, chocolate malt, maltesers, toasty, light alcohol, chocolate ice-cream and liquorice with a small tan head. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Nice bitter-sweet balance to it. A solid beverage for sure.

Dark beer with brown head. Creamy beer, great texture, with some caramel and toffee. And lots of dark chocolate! Some sweetness from some dark fruits. Full bodied. Great beer.
