look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Grabbed this one in a "make your own six pack." No freshness date. I drank it slow, and allowed it to warm a little.

Appearance: Dark brown color with a healthy finger of tan head. Mild lacing.

Smell: Rich roasted malts mostly.

Taste: Super rich malts with a nicely bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Extra Stout is smooth beer. Medium-full bodied.

Overall: I'll start by saying that the American "Guinness Draught" does not exist for me. This is Guinness. It's a nice stout that I enjoy occasionally. There are better choices, but Guinness Extra Stout always tastes good.

Serving type: bottle
