Aroma is quite pleasant. Appearance black with a nice head that affords lacing for most of the drink time. Taste is unique and very good, slightly dry, not sweet but not bitter at all. Could be a tad thicker but that is a personal preference. I could drink this one all day. My favorite offering from Guinness to date. I do wish it was a bit thicker but that is all it lacks in my opinion. Ferris (17107) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle - Sweet, dark and fruity malts. Raisin and plum. Jet black brown with a rich light brown head. Dark rich and sweet malts like the nose. Dark breads, fig and a sweet and light bitter finish. Nice. EdKing (2668) - 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 I’ve had. Scipio (1275) - 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. matstrange (264) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017
Fabulous. Like normal Guinness but much much better. Such deep roasted malted chocolate flavours. A very smooth mouth feel, very much worth a try!

Bottle at home picked up from Tesco. As "Guinness Antwerpen". Surprised i hadn’t ticked this before. A dark caramel brown coloured pour with a rocky mid tan head that fades. Aroma holds some sweet malt loaf, blackberry, jam, vanilla. Little meaty on the nose. Flavour is composed of sweet tangy brown malts, brown sugars liquorice and treacle, apple and dark berries, earth. Palate is medium bodied, frothy carbonation medium sweet with a tang in the finish. Archetypal for the style. Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - MAY 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a thick brown foam residing like ice cream. Scent is medium notes of caramel malt and brown sugar. Taste is consistent with light sour properties. Finish is dense and smooth like an ale of much higher ABV. Lingering notes of proper fresh malt. Great. jamesie1857 (1986) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
330ml Antwerpen from Tesco - Solid black body, thick tan head. Looks great. Nose is burnt grains and nuts, lots of coffee grinds, bit of smoke and liquorice. Taste is fine, not as powerful as expected, a little muted version of all the aroma notes. Good mouthfeel though, big and syrupy. ABV well masked.
