spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2006
(Bottle BB 04/07/07) Roasted malty, caramel and slightly hoppy aroma. Black colour and large, light brown, mostly lasting head with fair lacing. Roasted malty (even burned), moderately bitter, liqueur and slightly fruity flavour. Slightly carbonated, light alcoholic, warming and medium to full-bodied palate. Very good stout but slightly too alcoholic! 12/05/06

Big thanks to Saarlander for bringing a bottle back from Europe and sending it my way in a recent trade!!!

33cl bottle, and no annoying little nitro ball. almost black on the pour with a big frothy light brown head. lace that lasts to the bottom of my snifter. aroma is of dark roasted malt, raisins and a bit of alcohol. mmmm... this is more full-bodied than the Guinness served here in North America. flavors are more roast malts, licorice, raisins and some chocolate and nuts thrown into the mix. very nice, I could get used to this! Thanks a bunch for the gem Aaron.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2006
Bottle at the White Horse, Parsons Green, August 2005. Very dark brown, almost black. Distinctly fruity on the nose, with the emphasis on dried fruit - raisins and sultanas. More fruit, with touches of burnt malt and soft chocolate on the palate. A found it a bit sweet and short of bitterness, which detracted from the mouthfeel somewhat. Some woody edges. Nice enough. I just wish the old bottle conditioned Guinees that used to be made for the UK market was still available.
