Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a British pint glass.

Oily black with a thin pale tan head that leaves scattered lacing.

Aroma: a faintly charred aroma which must be the roasted barley and a mild earthy hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: soft but solid.

Taste: coffee, licorice, faint smokiness with a dry finish and a slightly bitter sting on the fade.

Notes: good stuff. Does not have any Chocolate notes like a lot of Porters. The overriding qualities of Guinness Extra Stout are Dry, smoky and slightly bitter. I bet this really grows on someone.
