Mackeon (116) - - JAN 27, 2015
Sort of an improved version of the regular St. James’s Gate brew. Darker, sweeter and stronger, it’s really a much nicer beer. Guinness with some Belgian fine-tuning, for which we should be thankful to the people at Athony Martin’s. And that label is a design classic, of course.

Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Dark opaque red with nice tan head. Quite fruity with dry malty finish. A bit sour and nicely dry and bitter, has the Guinness character. Full bodied. Good stuff.

Icedwarf (584) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is rokerig en bitter gelijk een gewone Guinness, echter deze is wat zachter en minder scherp dus nog beter. Uitstekend bier. Etiket is gewijzigd.

Butters (3940) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2015
33cl bottle in Granada just outside of Alhambra. Inky black pour with fair ring of off-white head. Sweet molasses and sarsaparilla with raisin and toffee notes. Some lacto-ish sweetness on the finish. Damn tasty. Especially after drinking pale lagers everywhere.

adamnowek (505) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
Jet black with a thin beige head. Well carbonated and the taste is strong in coffee. Much more bold in taste than the commonly available Guinness counterpart.

Alusmamuts (789) - LATVIA - DEC 29, 2014
Dark brown, almost black with rich creamy light brown head. A bit sweet caramel aroma. Much more rich taste than "ordinari" Guiness, strong hops and roasted caramel bittrness, the later with strong aftertaste. Mild sweetness around tongue.

Boxereddy (193) - BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Zwart ondoorzichtig bier met mooie beige schuimkraag. Aroma van koffie, koekje, donkere karamel, donkere mouten, hint van rook. Smaak is geroosterde mout. Bittere afdronk, degelijke stout.
