martjoobolut (2924) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2015
0,33L bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours dark brown-black with light brown head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is salty, metallic, roast, malt. Flavor is sweet, bitter, roast, metallic, buttery, with licorice and burnt notes. Finish is roast-malt bitter and has some alcohol. Overall: solid brew. A lot better than the regular Guinness we get here.

TheCametron (2347) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle back at the room. I love that Belgium has it’s own Guinness. Must be the only European foreign export. Pours Black with a Beige head. Advanced charred malty sweetness on the nose. Lots of roasted malt character but with fruity sweetness and a hit of booze. Chocolatey charred bitterness. There’s a lot going on. I’m a big fan of the non-traditional Guinnesses. This is probably my favourite.

McSherman (527) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2015
Tiefschwarz mit recht beständigem hellbraunem Schaum. Geruch: Tolle Aromen von Röstmalz, Karamell, getrocknete Früchte. Sehr einladend! Geschmacklich beginnt das Bier mit einer leichten Süße und einer Aromenvielfalt von stark geröstetem Malz, Kaffee, Schokolade, Rauch. Sehr komplex! Dazu gesellt sich eine leichte Bitterkeit, die einen langen Abklang einleitet. Dazu eine wunderbar passende ölige Textur. Empfehlung!

peponi (1430) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2015
Aroma: roasted smoked notes, coffee, dried fruits. Appearance: dark color, nice creamy head. Taste: acid and smoked, roasted dark malts, dried fruits, bitter chocolate, coffee, semi-dry, bonfire. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, ashy rosted finish. Overall: Really good stuff, nice smoked notes and deep compex taste.

MrTipple (3566) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Aroma: toasted malts, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. Appearance: black, medium, creamy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, yet some sweetness as well, intense toasted malts, chocolate, dry cacao, coffee, dry finish. Overall: nice Foreign Stout - is this really any better than the other Guinness FE, can’t really tell. Bottle from Utobeer, London Bridge.

Salmaneser (108) - BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown, almost black beer and brown head. Strong aroma, roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, coffee, mokka and some dark fruits. Taste starts off sweet, followed by bitterness and some sourness. Palate is too lively, should be more creamy.

minutemat (4173) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours black with generous off-white head. Taste is rich and smooth with a nice sweetness ahead of bitter roasted malts. Hardly recognisable as Guinness, beefed up with flavour and infinitely more drinkable. This is Guinness brewed to it’s full potential.

Woc (104) - BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2015
Very dark, almost completely black. Nice thick head and it also gives nice lacing. Aroma is fresh and light. Taste is quite bitter but chocolate. Also roast and maybe a bit burned. Not bad, have a few so going to enjoy some more.

daje (3982) - NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. Black body, creamy light brown head. Aroma of coffee, Hazelnut, chocolate. Malt heavy taste , elements of roast and cocoa. Soft bitter finish. A bit more of everything compared to the regular G
