Fles gedeeld door Roelzie. Het is een donkerbruin bier met een dun beige schuim. Het heeft een gebrande moutige geur en smaak.

500ml can into glass. Black beer with coffee coloured head. Nose is chocolate malt. Light body, fizzy mouthfeel. Light malt taste with chocolate finish. Easy-drinking, sweet and light.

It was confusing finding this one as the label is different on the bottles sold in the USA

Bottle from BevMo. Super deep ruby in color. Sweet roasty aroma. Some anise is present as well. Smooth and roasty. A little bit of a burnt malty flavor. Pretty easy drinking.

11.2 oz. bottle, part of the 200th Anniversary 12 pack. Poured dark brown with a thin beige head. Light chocolate malt, faint coffee and some molasses on the aroma. Light sweetness on the flavor with a medium body that tries to be more than it is. Pretty good.

Grumpelmies (463) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2018
Bottle. German version, 4,1 %. Black/brown with a big beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, a little bit of coffee and some tartness. Taste is roasted malts, some dark chocolate and hops in the aftertaste. Strong carbonation and thin body. This is alright and totally sessionable but my least favourite Stout from Guinness. I'm missing the cocoa and the creamy mouthfeel.

Zlotta (4662) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 7, 2018
0.33 l bottle from 'Rudat' as 'Guinness Extra Stout' at 4.1% abv (German version), best before May 2018. Clear, very dark ruby to black with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, some coffee and hints of licorice. Moderately sweet, malty, quite roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee and some licorice, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, earthy-dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Decent.

k_gadeberg (421) - �rhus, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2018
On bottle. Pours black, with chocolate colored head. The scent is malty and chocolate. The taste is watery, notes of chocolate. The texture is thin. Easy to drink, thirst quencher.

kondzioss (150) - Przemyśl, POLAND - FEB 19, 2018
Aromat kawy, czekolady, estrów. W smaku team słodyczka zdecydowanie. Lekkie i trochę wodniste.
