josanguapo (1511) - SPAIN - MAR 5, 2017
17 March 2016: From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Watching True Detective 2x03. Much better than the more common Guinness Draught. That one I cant finish. This one Ive enjoyed. Addictive aroma and good taste and mouthfeel. Avg 4.2 5 March 2017. In Ikeaís pint glass. This is the only one guinness it has sense to exist.

kramer (6578) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Bottle. Pours a black body with a one inch foamy beige head. The nose is heavy roast and sweetness with coffee and burnt malt. The flavor is fairly different than the typical Foreign Export, itís a little fruitier and thereís a heavier burnt malt finish than the regular. It almost gets to a slightly rubbery quality on the finish actually. Medium to full bodied with fizzy active carbonation and a lingering finish. Meh, I think that I just prefer the standard version.
