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.
