Appearance: Dark opaque brown body with a thick 3 finger brown (really brown) head that clings to glass. Looks good.
Smell: Not much, very light malt-like aroma.
Taste: Not aggressive at all, nutty character with slight bitter aftertaste. Almost light in taste (for a stout that is).
Mouthfeel: Slight chocolate overtones, nut-like character remains. Though light in taste, it has that nice stout aftertaste. Finishes a bit roasted.
Drinkability: Alcohol content well hidden, easily could have a few of those.

Bottle on my honeymoon. It’s a shame I can’t review the Guinness Foreign Extra Stout from Belize, as that is just a tinge better than this beer. Anyway... This poured a Ltd light dark black color with a small off-white head. Light chocolate notes, light herbal malts. Touch of malty sweetness. Decent. kokos666 (421) - Gliwice, POLAND - DEC 9, 2016

Delicate touch of chocolate in the nose, some malts also. Taste is rather empty, not bad but empty, like not much is going now. Also just a tiny notes of chocolate. Not much of bitterness and roasty notes. It’s ok. Not bad but not awesome as well. DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle. Thanks tons to my buddy Trevor for lugging this back for me! Cola brown with a rapidly receding beige head. Oddly enough, the aroma is cola-ish too, with dark caramel and nutty undertones, light sulfur as well. Watery palate, all caramel and metal. Peanut-skin dryness in the finish. More like an American dark lager than a stout.

Bottle. Thanks Austin! Clear dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, caramel, sugar, dark fruits, light metalic notes. Flavor is the same, sweet with some metalic and roasted notes. Light bodied, smooth with a dry end. Bov (13264) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2016
courtesy of Lukas Flückiger - clear very dark brown beer with a poor head retention; toasted aroma of nougat and chocolate; sweet, grainy, full-bodied, some bitterness; dusty aftertaste of brown sugar and chocolate ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Another bottle safely returned to the states by Coldbrewky...Big coffee head died quick. Not a lot of nose. Roasted malt palate hints to a bigger beer, but understandably thin knowing the climate. I could easily see crushing several of these in a hammock at sunset. Erzengel (9540) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 15, 2015
Many thanks to kevnic2008 for this sample! The beer starts malty and easy to drink. Lots of malt, slightly sweetish but typical for 6,5%. Fresh malty, hints of roast, no hints of Stout-souness. Somehow only a "Dunkel". Malty and slightly roasted finish with sweetish hints and nearly no bitterness. Nice but not too deep.
