Comes in the well known dark bottle, Guinness Special Export Stout is a beer with its own unique taste. Can I find the classic Guinness taste in this Foreign Extra version?
Pours the expected pitch black colour with a tan whitish head that didn’t last too long, with little lacing.
A very strong aroma of dark cocoa, coffee and roasted malts. The smell is quite strong on the nose.
The taste was powerful. Now I know why in Africa they use the slogan "Guinness gives you power!" It was a very strong tasting stout, with a long bitter aftertaste, that had a bite to it. Overall a good strong stout, tasting of roasted malt with traces of coffee. As you would expect with a Guinness stout the flavours are complex and well balanced, making it one of the worlds richest tasting beers. Still not as good as a pint of the real black stuff beside the Liffey, Dublin town. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown with a large tan head.
The aroma is smoky sweet malt. The taste is smoky malt bliss. rayaron (1920) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle. Opaque black with brownish head. The aroma has notes of milk chocolate, molasses, toffee and chocolate cake. Sweet and bitterish flavor with notes of milk chocolate, coffee, molasses, licorice, a bit alcoholic. Medium to full-bodied. Nice. zvsn (2192) - ISRAEL - JUN 17, 2017

Irish draft beer in Shamrock bar in Novi Sad, Serbia. Expensive but very good, worth it. So milky soft in mouth, not so drinkable, pretty color and foam, special pouring technique. coil (90) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2017

Bottle from Asda. Pours darkest brown with thick foamy tan head. Aromas of caramel and light treacle , roasty chocolate malts come though. The caramel with the sparkle gives an initial Cola-like sensation. Once it’s acclimatised a bittering roast malt comes to the fore. The body is soft with a medium to gentle dry sparkle. This is almost spot-on but the depth of flavours I found a little disappointing.
