Bottled. A chestnut-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and hints of burnt malt. The flavor is sweet and very roasted with strong notes of roasted malt as well as medium notes of chocolate, prunes, and bread, leading to a dry roasted finish. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

Oakes (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2009
Almost white. Light brown body. Cookiesh, almost biscuity note and some light black malts on the nose. More directly roasty, bitter and nutty than regular Guinness and with rich cocoa. Nice - closer to the beer I knew when I first had Guinness.

Bottle as shown. Pours a very dark brown with small frothy light tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is raisin malt, licorice, and smoke. Decent spotty lacing on the glass. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roasted malt and choclate. A lot more sweeter than the original. A good dry stout from Guinness.
