Guinness Extra Stout
Serving: Bottle
Looks: Black with deep brown highlights, opaque, two fingers of tan head.
Smell: Biscuity and sweet malt aroma – chocolate and raisins.
Taste: Sweet malt taste.
• Raisins
• Malt
• Coffee
• Toast
• Walnuts
Quite sweet for a stout but with a nice dry down. Dry and toast like flavors become more apparent as this warms up.
No noticeable hop presence, more raisin on the finish.
Mouth feel is a bit aqueous and aggressively carbonated.
Overall: Not a bad stout.

I prefer it just a tad below room temperature because I find it smoother, but maybe that's just me. This is a very good stout!

350ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a black colour with hints of red/wine. Thin liquid, not nearly as viscous as other Stouts out there. About two fingers of a fluffy off-white head with medium retention. Beautiful thick lacing left on the glass. (4.25)

S: Very strong roasted malts aroma upfront. Hints of honey, brown sugar, roasted coffee grains, hints of dark chocolate, a bit sweet, metallic smell. (3.75)

T: Follows the nose, but the sweetness I noticed in the smell isn't there. Dry, bitter and rich. Honey and roasted malts are dominant. (3.75)

M: Full-bodied, rich, medium carbonation, roasted malts aftertaste. (3.5)

O: The first couple of times I had this, I absolutely loved it. After tasting many other great stouts, I realize this brew isn't as much of a masterpiece as I thought it would. It's still a very good beer, something I would drink whenever. (3.5)
