Dark with a nice frothy offwhite head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is malty and sweet at first but rounded off with a nice bitterness. Medium roastyness. Medium body well carbonated. thanatosti (1772) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Coop. Pours black with a huge tan head. Faint aroma of roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts en a hint of when you bite on the end of a pencil, a mix of wood and graphite, a bit ashlike. LIvely carbonation and a rather short aftertaste.

Bottle shared with McTapps. A bit watery but still coffe-like. Too much carbo but enjoable and recommendable. McTapps (6957) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Quite airy texture of foam, not as creamy as known. Typical taste of coffee with a gentle bitterness, but all together very smoothy. brnandersen (4067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2012
33 cl. bottle from Systembolaget, Luleå, 27.7.2012. Black with a massive, creamy beige head. Aroma with dark roasted malts, whisky, tar, coffee and a sweetness from dark, candid sugar. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with sticky texture. Finishes with lots of roasted malts, coffee and a hint of ash. A classic stout.

Bottle.Tried during our holiday in Croatia August 2012. Not as bitter as the versions i have tried in the uk. Much smoother but still with that unique Guinness flavour. Very easy to drink on a delicious warm evening. One I will remember.

Almost black with a large slightly tan head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, ash, malt and some coffee. Rather bitter finish. Thin and not that exciting.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Dark brown with a lasting brown lacy head. Smells of roasted chocolate malt with sugar, nut and smoked malt. Medium Frothy body. Taste of roasted grain almost burnt, nut and a dry bitter roast finish. Some elements of fruitiness like blackberry. I like the dryness. Dalar (21) - FINLAND - AUG 3, 2012
There’s a medium amount of foam. Pours nicely, the looks are dark brown. Beige foam that stays only a couple of minutes. Medium roasted malts, very dry taste. Some bitterness. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. The finish is drastically longer than with basic Guinness, I like this much more. BillHick420 (469) - NORWAY - AUG 3, 2012
Pours pitch black with a creamy tanned head. Mildly sour aroma with hints of roasted coffee and chocolate. Aroma too low. OK, but nothing more.
