Guinness Special Export (Antwerpen) has a thin, beige head, a very dark brown appearance, and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is strong, with licorice, dark brown bread crust, black strap molasses, dark-brown sugar, black cherries, and some char & peat. Taste is similar, with sweet & rich notes predominating. Mouthfeel is heavy, and Guinness Special Export finishes sweet & somewhat lingering. Outstanding stuff! RJT Johnstledger8 (1409) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 17, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 Første øl i genren:
Mørkebrun og med lyst brunt skum.
Næsen giver ikke så meget - lidt ristet malt.
Fuld krop. God balance. Masser af ristet malt, bitterhed.

Bottle labelled as "Antwerpen Stout". Pours opaque cola brown-to-black, with a 3-finger tan head that was tight and creamy. Mild aroma, with notes of roasted malt and chocolate. Body is full,with a bit of oil to it. Dry finish. Chocolate flavor mixed with roasted malt. A touch of smokiness at the back. flying_pig (1685) - SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2017

This one was a very nice beer from Guinness & easily one of the best, if not the very best, that I've tried from the brewery so far. There was a lot more complexity to the beer than anticipated with it coming through quite rich & sweet, plenty of chocolate & darker fruits featuring alongside some nice coffee & roasted flavours. It was a balanced & smooth offering that went down much easier than I thought it would & it's definitely a beer that I'll be on the look out for again.
Lekko palone, wytrawne, dość mocno alkoholowe, jak na takie piwo. Szału to nie ma p0urmeac0ld0ne (407) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - SEP 7, 2017
(bottle as Guinness Antwerpen Stout) Velvety, highly-alcoholic stout. Very warming and embracing. Goes down easy. Got for £1 in Tesco, discontinued. blariacum (231) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2017
Flesje. Natuurlijk gewoon goed, al blijft een getapt glas altijd te prefereren (en dan t liefst in een pub in Ierland zelf). Mooi van smaak, zacht smakende stout, mag minder zoet.Die 8% viel trouwens niet eens op, klasse, want de alcohol overheerst op geen enkel moment.

330ml bottle from Tesco Extra, Watford (as 'Antwerpen Stout'). Black, with a beige head. Nice toasty aroma, very dry flavour, with big burnt notes and dried fruit. Slight boozy hint at the end. Cimbasso (1056) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Sampled as Guinness Antwerpen Stout in a bottle from Tesco’s. Black with a thick, creamy beige head. Deceptively easy to drink the high ABV is quite well disguised. A little sweeter than regular Guinness but with a vast amount of bitterness and roasted flavours. Complex taste of dark chocolate, strong black coffee, leather and wood and a long and lingering aftertaste. A really excellent stout.
