leaparsons (8036) - 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.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2005
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...

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - JAN 2, 2010
bottle - pours nice and black with a flash of ruby when held to the light. The aroma is fruity with a touch of chocolately caramel and a hint of smoke and soy sauce. The taste is roasted and smoky with a bit of soy sauce which finishes bitter.

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Very dark, a little red inside, brown, but almost black. Brown big head that holds good. Weird aroma for me, coffee, chocolate, roastiness, smells a bit weird. Something inside the smell that doesnít seems to fit in. A bit of fruit maybe? Chocolate, roastiness, coffee, not a bad taste. Dark fruits, caramel. Good biterness. And some nice aftertaste, wich is better then the actual taste. Some kind of drop-candy in the taste.

tlind2 (1126) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Black-brown color, brown head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Roasted malt flavor with espresso notes. Full body, high carbonation. Not bad, but Iíve seen many better stouts at this ABV.
