3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average stout, nothing to write home about, but dark like a guiness but with more umphhhh
Initial mouth feel is suprisingly thin and refreshing, giving way to the familiar full body expected from stout, roast malt flavours (leather, chocolate,tabacco), and a strong, pleasant bitterness. Well balanced, satisying but not too heavy; still one of the best stouts on the market. Shame the standard(e.g draft/weaker ) vers is so insipid in comparison! loscovar (617) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - SEP 16, 2017
Bottle in Nattitangou, Republic of Benin. Black color, malty, roasted, chocolate,maybe some vanilla notes thejackpacker (529) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle from ?, maybe the supermarket, been a long time since I bought it. This I must say is a very pleasant surprise. it is all that lovely cuddlyness that a normal Guinness gives you but refined and made more butch and adult. The product description is quite spot on here, there is a roasted barley taste there, with some added herbs I would say. It is bitter and yet sweet too and quite crisp with a little fizz on the tongue. I think this is very decent indeed, glad it isnt too hard to find. Larry_Duffman (576) - - SEP 4, 2017
I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours black with a small, brown head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, and dried fruit. The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, raisin, and prune. As it warms, some smoky flavor comes through. It's pretty smooth and really flavorful. This is really good stuff. Navers (197) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2017
On tap in Molly Malone's. Pours black, creamy, with a great cascade foam effect. Aroma is mild, stoutish sourness, milky, liquorice, sweet, watery. Body is thin, could be more full. Taste is watery, creamy, mild roasted like notes, watered mocha. Good beer, but very watery and light. With a thicker body it could be great.

Bottle. Dark brown to black, smal tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, pralines, liquer. Taste is neutral with bitter finish. Chocolate, pralines, touch of cherries, old paper. Medium body with watery texture, high carbonation.
Better than ordinary Guinness, but still average stout.
Bottle 0.33l. Dark brown colored. AROMA- chocolate, roasted malts, pralines, touch of nuts and alcohol. FLAVOR- neutral, lightly bitter, roasted malts, chocolate, touch of cardboard. Medium bodied. sephyrott (191) - - JUL 29, 2017
Not bad for commercial brew.
33cl from bottle. The classical Guinness but much more character. Slightly darker, not as smooth, but more complex and malty titanek (455) - POLAND - JUL 3, 2017
W aromacie słodkawe, owocowe, palone. W smaku wytrawne, lekko palone, lekka czekolada, kawa. Bamsen78 (5487) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy very dark brown with stable creamy tan head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and roast, with notes of yeast. Sweetish flavour of malt and dired fruit, with notes of roast and yeast and touches of hops. Roasty and estery aftertaste with malty notes. Creamy mouthfeel. A very nice Foreign Stout. The fact that it is mass produced does not change a thing here.
