Great. Regular Guiness loses all its flavor if you donīt drink it on tap but this one is good in bottle. Its like a powered version of Guiness, with an even more complex taste. I could drawn in this wonder.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 This one actually turned out to be quite ok. Appearance is black with a creamy light-brown head. Smoked, malty and coffee aroma. Bitter flavour and palate.

The color is black with a fine light brown head. The flavor is licorice, slightly smoked, and sweet. The flavor is very sweet and slighty smoked. A good Guinness but too soft for my liking of a stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Very black coloured with a beautiful chocolatish head. This is a very nice looking beer. Aroma is roasty and hoppy with destinch coffee notes. Roasty and coffeish flavour as well that ends up in a huge bitterness. A bit sharp mouthfeel, but not in any way unpleasant. Good stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colour: nearly full black. Dark brown, very thick head, going down as lace. Nose gives burnt malts, black coffee, roasted nuts. Bitter, and in the same breath malt-sweet taste, again overtaken by roasted malt bitterness and caramelisation, constantly fluctuating. Retronasal flavour of coffee-covered cookies and cured ham. Rich mouthfeel, little carbonisation, seems to have been knocked out by pouring. The little carbonation notwithstanding, there's a sourness from the CO2. This is a very strange beer, very balanced with sweet, bitter and sour collaborating to create a rich beer. I have problems with its qualification as "sweet" stout. Somewhere between a classis Irish stout and an Imperial ditto, I'd say.

Black with giant, frothy, tan head. The clasic Guinness yeast aroma (sweet and creamy). Smooth, mellow start with a very bitter finish.

Big off-white frothy head. Deep dark and a bit cloudy. Strong roasted malt aroma and flavor. Some tropical fruit and licorice. Full bodied, with a hint of sourness. Long roasted malt finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black colour with a huge, lasting brownish head. Very nice aroma with toasted malt and chocolate. Flavour is also good: sweet, a bit alcoholic, and ending with a long bitter finish. All in all (definately) my favourite Guinness!

Absolutly awful. This should not be sold! It soils the good name Guinness has. This is the only drink I could never finish!
Why oh why Sir Arthur??
