Scipio (1111) - 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 I’ve found yet. Grumpelmies (318) - 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. It’s definitely quite good but I prefer the Foreign Extra Stout. SarkyNorthener (4673) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2017
