Rough beer. As usual with guinness there is not enough malts or hops, but they have this time been able to come up with the strangest stinging aroma which has something to do with herbal aroma. I can not think not think jagermeister. I am not convinced. A good stout should not taste like this.

[email protected] 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.

0.33l bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is roasty with chocolate, coffee and toffee notes. Taste is sweet with nice roasted malt notes and some woody and tobacco character. Overall it's nice stout.

Zlotta (4154) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2017
0.325 l bottle from 'Bier & Beer', best before January 2018. Black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and quite bready aroma of dark chocolate, caramel, licorice and grains. Quite sweet, malty, rather roasty and moderately bready taste of dark chocolate, licorice, grains, some coffee and hints of raisins, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, moderately earthy-dry and slightly bready finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very interesting, quite different from the original (fes) version, has a certain breadiness.

blackisle (2893) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle 32.5cl. from Wah Nam Hong supermarket Duivendrecht, @home poured into an English pint. Pitch black, good two finger creamy tan head, mostly lasting, heavy lacing; rich aroma, roasted malts, fruit syrup, molasses, fortified wine, coffee; rich taste, medium sweet and light bitter, roasted malts, dark fruits, resinous; in the middle part more and more bitterness leading to a dry bittersweet finish, roasted malts, chocolate, some licorice, alcohol notes; creamy to sticky texture, soft carbonation; definitely differs from other foreign extra stout versions, smooth and tasty.

Spencer1978 (6) - Portsmouth, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Pours flat and resembles cola. Aroma of strong cold coffee. Tastes like stout with knobs on. Sweet finish with toffee ice cream flavours. Booze hidden by big flavour. This stuff will make your hair go all curly. Lovely!!

DavyK (167) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle from Redmond’s. Big fan of this. There’s biscuit and raisin going on - it’s more than just strong Guinness, for sure. But the coffee-bitter thing is still there, in abundance, and that offsets the booziness.

3.2
Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - APR 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours black and headless. Scent is ethanol on dense old ale, almost Belgian in style. Taste is consistent and quite on the plain side, with notes of cherry wood and sour berries. Slightly slimy. Very good.

3.5
ken1 (2209) - DENMARK - APR 8, 2017
Aroma: Roasted malt and fruity sweetness with smokey notes. Flavour: Roasted malt with sugary and fruity sweetness. Aftertaste is smokey and malty. Colour: black with a light tan head.

3.7
Piw (1292) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2017
330ml Flasche. Klar und schwarz mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Feine Kaffee- Schokoaromen. Intensiver Geschmack. Spritzig. Lecker.
