3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black, opaque, big head, lasting with beautiful lacings. Aroma of coffee, biscuit, dark caramel, dark malts, hint of smoke. Nothing standing out in the taste, just high roasted malts. A bit astringent but not in a bad way. Nice bitter finish from the malts mostly. Notes of earthy hops. Medium bodied, dry finish, little carbonation.
Not anything too good but itís a decent stout.

Black with very nice light brown creamy head that leaves a small layer of foam with some big bubbles. Light fruity with some berries and strawberry candy, roasted nuts, light coffee, biscuits and cookies. Light sweet with roasted bitter finish. Nice creamy feel. Worlds apart from the disgusting draught.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Comes in the well known dark bottle, Guinness Special Export Stout is a beer with its own unique taste. Can I find the classic Guinness taste in this Foreign Extra version?
Pours the expected pitch black colour with a tan whitish head that didnít last too long, with little lacing.
A very strong aroma of dark cocoa, coffee and roasted malts. The smell is quite strong on the nose.
The taste was powerful. Now I know why in Africa they use the slogan "Guinness gives you power!" It was a very strong tasting stout, with a long bitter aftertaste, that had a bite to it. Overall a good strong stout, tasting of roasted malt with traces of coffee. As you would expect with a Guinness stout the flavours are complex and well balanced, making it one of the worlds richest tasting beers. Still not as good as a pint of the real black stuff beside the Liffey, Dublin town.

Bottle from Beers of Europe (made the trip out to the shop!) Aroma of Vanilla, Dark Chocolate and perhaps Coffee. Also the high ABV adds a little to the smell...and to the taste! The flavours...well....Vanilla, Toffee, Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Marshmallow, Roasted Malts, Peaty Water and a slight smokiness! Any more? Lovely beer!
