darioklc (757) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAY 21, 2012
Dark black color with fluffy tan head. It has roasted malt smell with bittersweet chocolate. Taste is of roasted malt, bread and caramel. Finish is sharp and toasty. It has medium body with medium carbonation with no alcohol warmth. Excellent Irish stout. I love it!

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 12, 2012
330 ml bottle from Jumbo, Santiago. This is a 5% abv version called Guinness Original and made in Belgium so I guess it’s this recipe. Pours a great black with ruby hues and a fantastic, beautiful beige head. Aroma is malty, roasty with notes of prunes and moccha. Taste is fine, moderately toasted with marginal sweetness. Smooth and soft in the palate but lacks power. Almost no carbonation. A good Dry Stout and much better than the one with the nitro thing.

motionmigs (23) - PHILIPPINES - APR 20, 2012
Pitch black color, almost no light can pass through; half finger brownish head with good lacing, aroma is roasted malts and dark chocolate with some faint hints of apple; taste is coffee, toasted bread, with a light to medium body; crisp, dry, medium finish, also good carbonation.

omikr0n (911) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Roasty coffee aroma. Roasty coffee aroma with hints of chocollate and caramel. Dry aftertaste. Nothing particularily wrong with this beer, but it’s not too impressive.

JaKeAFC (1109) - ITALY - MAR 3, 2012
33cl bottle as Guinness Original, 5%. Almost black with red-bordeaux hues under a powerful light. Beige head, reducing but lacing. Nose of toasted cereals. Aroma of cereals, roasted malts and some coffey notes. Pleasing bitterness balances initial malts sweetness and it’s a little acidic. Carbonation is modarate but sustained. Light to medium body, watery texture, fairly dry finish. A bit weak but not bad.

Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Das Bier im Glas ist fast schon pechschwarz, der Schaum ähnelt den von nem Malzbier. Geruchlich ists genau wie beim Kilkenny süßlich röstmalzig, allerdings wesentlich rauchiger. Der Antrunk ist extrem röstmalzig und der Nachgeschmack kommt noch stärker als beim Kilkenny einem Schwarzkaffee nahe. Das Guinness Extra Stout schmeckt eisgekühlt einfach nur sagenhaft gut.

Bluecat (3) - - FEB 15, 2012 does not count
A nearly black color with beige foam on top. Roasty chocolate smell. Feels foamy with a very bitter and slight watery taste. Not that bad but certainly not one of my favorite stout beers.
