Thanks Naam. Bummer this one is probably spoiled, dark brown with nice head, aroma of chocolate, dry fruits and cheesy sourness, flavors has some acids burnt notes and not enough sweetness. It should probably be spoiled or over-rated fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle from an African shop in rue Victor Hugo, Parisgary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2009
Black color; big, creamy head. Malty aroma, chocolate. Good body, chocolate flavor, with a pleasant degree of sweetness, light liquorice, light mix of coffee and roasted malt, unfortunately also a bit dusty. The final has a light metallic trace. Overall interesting.
Pours a deep, thick, viscous black with a dense tan foam head. Aroma is cocoa, burnt malts and sugars. Taste is cocoa, brown sugar, burnt malts and cereals, quite oaty towards the end. Finishes with a short bitter burnt-malt and almost no alcohol. Interesting and very flavourfull, this delivered way more than I expected from this beer. Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 22, 2009
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.. jhliesen (832) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle lovingly brought back from the Guinness brewery in Dublin. The pour formed a large tan head that dissipated, slowly, but didnít 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 itís 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. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2009
330. Thanks, After4Ever. Iíve been wanting to try one of these for a while. Pours translucent blackish brown with a thick and fluffy tan head. Sweet chocolate, licorice and berry aroma.

330. Thanks, TheWofl! Pours jet black. Thick creamy tan head, rocky and bubbly. Huge chocolate and prune nose. Creamy medium body, tons of presence. Chocolate, anise, and prune mid-palate. Long chocolatey finish. Awesome beer. BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2009
This is not your neighborhood pubís 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.

Can thanks to Omhper. Deep black with thick tan head. Smoky aroma is fruity too. Very smooth with hint of licorice rounding it out. By far best GFES I have had, has nice dry fruity character, solid malts, skins of Bosc pear, very nice.
