3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Oggi’s, Liberty Station Point Loma. Old fashioned Guinness aroma. Opaque brown/black color with a tan head that flattened. Smooth carbonation, medium bodied. Strong dark burnt malt flavor, but it’s not quite harsh. Underlaid with chocolate. Smooth. The finish is burnt and dry, and there seems to be a bit of bitter. Coffee? Went right by me. Good drink.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from ølbutikken.
Pitch dark, smooth lacing light brown to brown head.
aroma of coffee, roasted malts, brown cakes with chocolate coating, notes of something somewhat harder roasted than roasted malts, but also sweet milky or sugary notes. In total pretty compelx aroma, slightly hoppier and drier than your average stout. Arome is pretty close to guiness foreign extra as i remember it. Flavor is roasted stuff, cofee, chocolate, nice almost spicy dryness from hops, mixed with notes of hard roasted malts. Straight foreign stout, yet still complex, full bodied and very well tasting. Great beer.
