Iv noticed this before, however just took it for the foreign extra stout, close looking told me otherwise. The Aroma is malty with chocolate notes and somethign else which im not sure of maybe yeast. Taste is similarly typicaly stouts with a bit of a bit to it aswell, dry finish.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2006
(bottle) Very dark brown colour with a fluffy and stable brown head. Dusty and dry roasted malt aroma with cacao and notes of coffee. Sweetbitter flavour, dry-ish roastmalty taste with caramel and a touch of raisins, dry finish with a nice roasted bitterness and well-integrated warming alcoholic note.

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.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. Nearly black stout, that looks clear, and with a nice beige head. Malty and roasted, with some burnt sourness and dried fruits. Roasted and burnt malt, dried fruit, cocoa and hints of coffee in the flavor. Full body and a dry finish. Much more interesting beer than the Irish little brother, but not suitable for sessions.

JK (5563) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Much more interesting than what is available in the United States. The aroma is heavy with roasted malt. Flavor also has a roasted character with more malt. Surprisingly full malt flavor. Palate like a thick red wine.

Bottle. Black color with large creamy excellent mostly lasting light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, burnt, chocolate / coffee, brown sugar. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter (malt burnt bitter) with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Embrouille (2835) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
Deep black beer with a thick tan head. Aroma is a bit earthy with some soft molasses and an unusual carbonic aroma, that I tend to associate with homebrewing. Strong roasty aroma but there is also a metallic character that is quite distracting. Flavour is quite coffeeish with heavy roasted barley and a long lingering earthy bitterness. It’s quite simple really, sort of an intro Imperial stout rather than a foreign stout as listed. Nowhere near as good as the Nigerian version.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - NOV 30, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata da Squillari senza troppe aspettative, sia per il produttore sia per l’importatore; la verso ed è scurissima con schiuma beige pieno mica chiara pure éla. Aroma non molto pronunciato ma gradevole con una punta d’alcool che invece è perfettamente occultato nel sapore, pieno caffè e nocciola con qualche nota anche di frutti rossi tutto sommato abbastanza dolce e carezzevole. Corpo per niente acquoso; molto molto molto meglio delle aspettative.
