evergreen0199 (3323) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bottle from Tesco, Cromwell Road, Earls Court, London. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top which doesnít hang around for long. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, chocolate, some dark fruit, pretty sweet mind you. Pretty good stout but one bottle was quite enough.

JackMandarin (367) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2017
Bottle frae local Tesco. Pours very dark. Oily tan head. Aroma has an initial toasted hazlenut note. Roasted chocolate. Dried plums and raisins. Little heat from the booze. Taste is sweet with a fruity acidity. Berry notes. Very light balsamic tang. A little metallic. Also tannic. Light bitterness. More dried fruits on the finish. Port warmth. Medium-weight mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Mmmm.... not for me.

BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2017
Deep brown-black with a roasty head. Interesting nose of milk sugar, mild roastiness, caramel, butterscotch/diacetyl, and some sour Belgian character. On the palate, the muted roastyness is overwhelmed by butterscotchy/diacetyl character. Some thin chocolate alcohol and raisin notes emerge on the finish.

3.8
Scipio (1046) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2017
Pours black with a medium beige head that recedes very slowly. The aroma is robust, with chocolate, caramel, raisin, cherry, and vanilla. The taste is dry with a minor, lingering sweetness. Its heavy in chocolate with a coffee compliment. There is a good degree of roasted malts, some raisin and caramel, and slight licorice. The aftertaste is long and is a roasted coffee. This is medium in body, has more of a creamy texture, and is softer in carbonation. This might be the best Guinness product that Iíve found yet.

3.4
Grumpelmies (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Black with a tiny head. Aroma of butter, cake, cookies and butterscotch. Taste is chocolate, cookies, coffee, some hoppy bitterness and alcohol. Mouthfeel is rather thin. Itís definitely quite good but I prefer the Foreign Extra Stout.

3.8
EdKing (2576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle from Tescos labelled as Antwerp Stout. Pours opaque very dark brown to black with medium tan foam head which dissipates to thin. Nose is very nice. Rich roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, dusty cocoa, black coffee, some dried fruit, prune, raisin, plum. Taste is fruity, plum, raisin, prune, fig, dark chocolate, roasted malt, burnt malts, black coffee, ruby fruits. Bit of butteriness in the finish. This is really nice. Possibly best Guinness Iíve had.
