Dark, near black with brown head. There’s roasted matls and some hoppy bitterness, along with some undefinable sweetness (maybe toffee). Nice stout, but not as good as most impies. BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2012
From backlog Baran (5) - BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2011 does not count
Head: espresso, creamy , small
Smell: roastyness, malts, chocolat, cold coffee, bitter cocoa
Taste: nice balance between the coffee and chocolat bitterness and the bitter/sweetness of the roasted malts, dry end , earhty after , not bad !
Pours black with a brown head that sticks to the glass.
Aroma is coffee, burned malts, maybe some cocoa
Roast coffee taste, some bitter notes. Dry aftertaste, mocha and roastyness. Some chocolatty notes
Definitely better than the draught version.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Bijna zwart van kleur met veel kraag bij het inschenken, ziet er goed uit. Ruikt en smaakt erg moutig en caramellig. Bitterzoet met een lange rokerige nasmaak. Lekker bier om rustig te drinken. redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Chocolate and caramel on the nose. It pours black with a think white head. Bittersweet dark chocolate upfront with caramel malts and toasted bread following Very clean crisp finish, refreshing

Botle from el corte ingles, lisbon. Thick light brown head and thick texture. Dark dense color. Low carbonation. Medium to high bitterness. Coffee/chocolate/roasted aroma. Gary (2094) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 (Bottled) Nothing too different about this to the other GF/Stout in recipe -other than more booze . When ive sampled the other Guinness exports (dublin,nigeria) im struck by the difference in quality to the usual soulless draught guinness on reflection . I’m also left happy enough ,as its a pretty sippable and easy texture on offer ,its oily roasty richness is freindly -united with an 8% that is warming . This rests black with a beige ring that dies soon...oaky ,rich roasty ,buttery nose . rich notes linger -suggesting dark fruit (raisins) winey and oily , a dry roast finish gives a dark chocolate bitterness . turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2011
A nice robust Guinnes equivalent -with decent complexity.
Pours completely black with a small head. Heavy coffee, malt, brown sugar aroma. Beautiful taste of roast coffee with a refreshing hint of sourness. Velvet mouthfeel. Excellent beer - the only problem is you’ll want one of these whenever you try the watery standard Guinness. Swaroga (2224) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 28, 2011
33cl bottle. Dark black with a big cappuccino head. Nose : Toffee, caramel and cheese. Tiramisu flavors. Sip : Oily with a very little but still present micro-biting from carbonation liquid. Sweet caramel and coffee. Toffee. It’s like you ware eating "cheetos’ and drinking brown beer. Funny. Once again nose said it all. Bitter coffee taste on the end. Nice. I forgot all the other Guinness I tried before. I can’t wait to compare them to this one. Thanks god it has some fair amount of alcohol in it. MikeKeller (956) - Kemi, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle from Alko. Dark, opaque cola brown beer with off-white head. Very malty aroma, caramel and roasty malts, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice on the nose. Taste is the same things with slight smokiness. Full bodied treat with nice balance.
