Bottle. Thanks for sharing this one ChristianScheffel. Pours dark brown with a nice creamy cappuccino coloured head. Aromas of chestnuts, dried fruit, ryebread and chocolate. Flavours of dark fruit, coffee, sugar and chocolate. My favorite Nigerian beer so far..

Bottle lovingly brought back from the Guinness brewery in Dublin. The pour formed a large tan head that dissipated, slowly, but didnt stick around like a regular guinness. A bit darker color than the regular beer. Large amount of chocolate smell with malt aroma. The taste was sweeter than a regular, but you still know its a guinness. Probably the best priced beer in Dublin at 2 euros a bottle.

Bottle and Liquid Sunshine VI. Thanks After4Ever! The highlight of the evening for me. This is why you gather and enjoy beer as a cohort. Dry bready aroma, some ripe cherry. Dense black. Dry woodsy and dynamic. Thrilled to enjoy this treat.

This is not your neighborhood pubs Guinness, but I wish it was. Black bodied with a chocolate cream head off of which waft intense chocolate cherry aromas with hints of Brett and wood. Chocolatey body, with again some dry hint of Brett and sour chocolate cherry finish. Guinness in name only, this is an exemplary Foreign Stout.
