I like stouts, but can't understand the heretofore low ratings. Almost black in the glass with small head and good lacings. Slight fizz on the tongue and nutty flavor with trace of bitterness at the end. Back label is in Spanish with expiry date 18 months away. Also used it to make an outstanding beef stew. Try it !

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 13A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L20:47 82 190. AROMA: roasted malt notes of coffee and slight cocoa. some DMS is noticeable as is some burned rubber. APPEARANCE: black and opaque. thin tanned head with low retention. TASTE: roasted flavour with a very dry finish. low hop derived bitterness with low fruitness. PALATE: medium-light body. medium-low carbonation. some roasted derived astringency. OVERALL: a dry stout with some odd aromas.

0,33 cl bottle.
Purchased in Italy. Front label reads "Original" and it is listed at 5.0% abv. The back label description is in Italian and Portuguese so I assume this is for the Italian and Portuguese markets.
Pitch black body with a full tannish slightly brown head.
The aroma is understated but you can definitely pick out some coffee and bitter chocolate as well as a little sourness.
More bitter chocolate and coffee on the tongue before a solid bitter finish that leaves a little hop behind. As I get down the glass the acidity builds up a bit and becomes, for my taste, unpleasant and unwelcome.
This is a very smooth beer.
Not bad at all, but I'm not a fan of the extra acidity that Guinness stouts tend to have(other than, of course, the draught.) Very much a toned down version of the Extra Stout that's available stateside which makes it a little lighter and smoother and easier to drink.
