john44 (3402) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Opaque Black in colour. Large rocky beige head. Good lacing. Fairly high level of carbonation. Very Malty; roasty/burnt malts, coffee, liquorice, milk chocolate, caramel. Spicy. Hoppy; some hop bitterness. Sweet-bitter roasty almost burnt coffee liquorice malty with some underlying sweetness. Bitter dry salty roasty finish. (2016-02-21)

gorkogrlo (355) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black color with small brown head. Aroma of alcohol, chocolate, coffee and dark rum. In flavor there are notes of chocolate, tobacco, maybe some orange also. Medium-full body. Sweet. Overall: nice one. Alcohol is well hidden. Maybe just a bit too sweet for me.

3.5
Saeglopur (2344) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 1, 2016
600 ml bottle from a supermarket in London, bb 21 06 17.
Almost black body, with a massive, dense, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of toast, caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, some dark fruits, slight spices.
Tastes of toast, coffee, cocoa powder, some vanilla, some liquorice, slight dark fruits.

Finishes roasty-bitter, quite dry, a bit sweet, medium alcohol warming, toasty, with coffee and some liquorice.

Nice one. Shares similarities with the regular Foreign Extra Stout, but it isn’t on par at all. Still enjoyable, fully aromatic and smooth to drink.

3.3
Grumbo (3981) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle from a convenience store in Ipswich. Pours almost black with a lasting tan colour head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel. Heavy sweetness, mellow roasted bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finish is more bitter, with a slight roughness. But overall not bad and more enjoyable than other Guinness I’ve tried.

1.3
kraddel (8901) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2016
Pours black, small white head. Smell is sweet, dark, coffee. Taste is metallic, sweet, plastic. Rotting Wood. Over-aged hay, rotting Grass. Bit bitter. Waw, pretty damn bad.

Sickly sweet beer and I believe an acquired taste. Had in a hotel in Abuja and it fit the ambiance but when in Nigeria I prefer star beer. Though if you must get serenaded by a lounge singer, this beer will do the trick ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

YantarCoast (1522) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUL 3, 2016
325ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours black with a large and creamy beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, liquorice, coffee. Taste is sorghum, malt, cold coffee, moderate bitterness. Interesting-tasting foreign stout.

3.5
MelvinKalksma (1727) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice, chocolate and cardboard.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown/black beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly dry with cardboard.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks depth and complexity. The sorghum make it really weird, but unique.

3.7
Ngejo (1000) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - APR 28, 2016
Bottle. Black, frothy, tan foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, & long finish.
