leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2004
Dark black with an beige foam. Aroma is sweet coffee and something slightly off. Flavours are typical of a guiness - sweetish coffee, some chocolate. Quite bitter on the finish. Better than the draught.

30 c bottle. Sweet flavor with licorice and hints of smoked herring. No chocolate flavor. Bitter finish. Mouth feel is nice and oily and carbonation too powerful.

The Great Guiness Taste Test with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/guinness-foreign Standard FES and <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/guinness-foreign Nigerian FES.
Reddish hints to the colour more wispy head. More muted aromas. Some liquorice perhaps chocolate also a lot of alcohol and slight mustiness. Much sweeter than the other two. Short bitter roastiness. Quite light but drinkable and smooth. I might have liked this more but the alcohol was too prominent and the sweetness seemed uneccessary.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle thanks to hopscotch: Pours to an opaque deep brown body with a small tan head, quickly fading. The aroma is chocolate, prunes, light cinnamon, cola. Taste is light cloves, chocolate, burned coffee, roasted malt, mocha, though itís all a bit less intense than I expected. Medium bodied, moderate-light carbonated, finishes with some sweet prunes and plums.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
bottle, ordered a while ago from belgianshop. Black with a thick khaki head. Sweet roasted malt and coffee aroma. Fairly big roasted malt flavor, some bitter chocolare in the finish. very tasty; easy to drink. As soon as i popped the cap, i realized that i should have sampled this side-by-side with the North American version. Maybe next time...

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
Black. Has a light-brown head, fully lasting. Aroma of sweet caramel. Good flavor, heavy bitter. Medium to full body, dry, creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Too big a difference between the sweet caramel aroma and the heavy bitter flavor.
