davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - AUG 13, 2007
Appearance: very dark brown color, maybe black. Great head, rocky, of beige color, dense and very persistent. Good look. Aroma: sweet chocolate, high roasted malts, grains coffee, black olives and presence of hoops. Herbal, candy and toffee touches. Fruitiness of sweet-ripe plums, berries and figs. Some metallic; spicy notes of vanilla, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Liquory and relatively complex. Flavor: very intensive toasty, bitter chocolate, roasted sugar and grain coffee. Fruitiness of peaches, berries, figs and dark olives; moreover, bitter-fruity of peel yellow grapefruit. Sweet barley start; with ultra-toasty finish that adding a persistent and intensive dryness, that is strengthened for the hoops. Liquory like fernet and coffee’s liquor, however, the sweetness hidden the alcoholic degree. Reminiscences of purple- bitter olives. Too clove and vanilla touches. Palate: medium body; very creamy, silky and velvet texture (maybe for barley un-malted). Low carbonation. Exquisite texture, very nice and intensive bitter-toasty.

Sammy (9548) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2007
Thank you Abusmaster. Jet black with substantial off-white creamy head. Good malty and licorice and roasted barley aroma. Taste is dry and bitter, with diesel fuel and smoke at the end of the bottle. Easy creamy mouthfeel while you absord this dry stout, Certainly better than any Guinness I have had,

rudolf (2343) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Very creamy head, nice lacing. Nose is rich toffee, cocoa notes, some dark cherry & tobacco, rummy qualities, brown sugar, maybe a twinge of alcohol. Flavor is toffee, cocoa, brighter tobacco & cherry than the nose suggests. Maybe a bit of yeast. Slightly spicy cocoa & tar finish.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Bottled 33cl. It pours a black beer with a beautiful big light brown head. Strong flavours of tar and black chocolate. Extremly smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Some alcohol presence. Roasted malt taste. Black chocolate, roasted finish. A good foreign stout with plenty of character.

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Bottle. The usual dark brown bordering on black pours gently into my glass, follwed by a flowing, slightly brownish head. It is incredible that it can stay for so long, and it continues to leave nice lacings on the glass. Aroma is primarily roasted, but compared to the usual Guinness, this has more chocolate aromas, and a whiff of dried fruits. Mouthfeel is spectacularly creamy, but feels lighter than the Irish original. Flavour is sweet, roasted, lots of chocolate. There is a fine vinious edge to it, giving me a lasting impression in my mouth. The roasted flavour gives the finish a light sour bitter edge. Great - much better than the original

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Bottle, BB 8/8/08. Poured a clear, deep garnety-brown with a creamy well-retained beige head and sticky lacing.. looked great! Aroma had a decidedly foreign stout feel to it... burnt semi-sweet chocolate and mild coffee with sweet herbs and dark caramel. Flavor was of sweet, yet bitter burnt chocolate with coffee bitterness.. almost candied caramel and light darker spices at the back-end.. tasty. Medium-bodied with a grainy and tacky feel to it.. Solid brew.

Bottle. Black with light brown head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, metal and some liqourice and a hint of alcohol. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, very mild compared to the alcohol content. Bitter finish. Much better than the draught Guinness that’s available here in Denmark, this is actually good!
