17-03-18 // bottle at Nollywood, Frankfwurt. Pours dark black with a beige goamy head. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste is full of roasted malts, solid sweetness, I dont know how sorghum is supposed to taste but it definitely gives a nice twist to the Guinness.mild roasted biter finish. Good stout.

600ml bottle, thanks martjoobolut. Pours dark reddish brown, almost black. Aroma is roasty, sweet, fruity, liquoricey, raisins. Taste is roasty, dry, used coffee filtery, prunes, burnt. Ashtray, tobacco in aftertaste. Dry in finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Drinkable, but weird. I expected it more like Guinness, but there are lots of different tastes here.

600ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! (5:4:4:2:8=2.3)Marduk (8998) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2018
Black, brief frothy beige head. Messy sickly berry aroma, a touch papery. Very dry ashy taste. Kinda watery palate, lightish, crisp carbonation. Harshly burnt ashy finish, some cigar tobacco. Something almost like the chinese salty dried preserved plums that we sometimes have - spicy, liquorice. Kinda nasty, but it keeps the alcohol hidden behind the scariness.
600ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Very dark brown color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Raisins, berries, sweet, smoked plums in aroma. Smoked plums, bit leather, roast, ashy in taste. Smoked plums, ash tray and tobacco in aftertaste. Alcohol is covered. Solid brew. suurjuust (3959) - ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2018
600ml bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Black beer, medium beige head. Nose is dusty, sweet notes, berries, thin. Flavor is thin, sour berry notes, tons of smoked plums, rubbery and burned notes, tobacco. Weird stuff. Not enjoying this.

Bottle (thanks maakun). Pours black with beige head. Aroma is sweet, roast, malt. Flavor is sweet, bitter, roast, berries, plums. Finish is roasty-ashtray. Covers alcohol well. Overall: okish, weird. GoDarkOrGoHome (86) - - FEB 22, 2018
Bitter with a spicy kick. It can catch you off guard on first sip and maybe a bit too syrupy to be sampled regularly but if you like your stouts with a strong aroma and malty but not too overpowering, I recommend. BlackHaddock (8139) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2018
325ml bottle, cheers Mat for bringing this to the monthly beer exchange in Chez Sophie on 30th Jan 2018. Looked like a Guinness and almost tasted like a Guinness, no idea what Sorghum actually smells or tastes like but something was different about this African Guinness, leather and liquorice notes maybe, not sure. minutemat (6453) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2018
330ml bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie. Pours dark brown, small tan head. Aroma has some strange liquoricey dark malt bearings. Taste similarly has some liquoricey notes, dark malts, strange tobacco sweetness. Really odd. BBHansen (1149) - Køge, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2018
DØE Køge. Appearance: pours clear black with good beige soapy and lacing. aroma/taste notes: caramel, liquorice, dark bread, chocolate, light dark fruits/raisins, alcohol and maize. palette: strong roasted malty aroma, average carbonation, medium to full body, medium to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by an average bitterness, medium to long duration and an oily texture. Overall: great foreign stout, with a local twist.
