Stout pour with large lasting head. A: buttermilk, licorice note, sweet dark malts, vanilla, wood note. T: smokey note kicks in from offset. Bit oily mouthfeel. Nice and long development which starts with the sweetness from the malts, moves towards vanilla, smokey bacon, back to malts with fruity touch, mostly banana. Finish is bitter, rye, tar.

Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi zwart bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma van geroosterde mout, caramel en chocola. Smaak is vol en diep, zoet-bitter, met een redelijke carbonatie. Smaken die nasr boven komen zijn geroosterde mout, caramel, noten en chocola. De afdronk is prettig zoet-bitter. Eén van de beste Guinness stouts naar mijn bescheiden mening. Heerlijk!

Salwal (351) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2016
From the bottle poured into nosing glass, pours pitch black with thick beige head. Nose is intense roasted malts, some smoke and alcohol there too paired with some liquorice. Taste is roasty alcoholic, some roasted nuts. Residual alcohol is long lasting...

Donker zwart met een tikkeltje rood onderin het glas. Volle lichtbruine fijne schuimkraag. Geur van geroosterde mout, karamel, koffie, choco. De smaak is zoetig welke in de nasmaak vol en lang terugkomt. Gebrande koffie en karamel en later wat bitter. Alcohol geeft een verwarmend effect. Flink wat koolzuur en redelijk vol. De hops pak ik er niet echt uit behalve het bittertje achteraf. Deze Export is niet te verwarren met de Guinness Draught.

kto (913) - 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.

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

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 Van ‘t vat. Ja, toch wel… special export van ’t vat! Zwart bier met witte wand klevende schuimkraag. Geur: zoetig, toffee, boter babbelaars. Smaak: verrassend zoetig. Alcoholisch. Volmondig. Slechts in de afdronk wat bitterheid. Van de fles is de geur iets anders: taart, koffie gist en ijzer. De smaak is ook zoet maar fruitiger en doet denken aan kalisse en touwdrop, ook wat vineus.
