12 oz. bottle poured into my nonic on St. Patrick's Day.

Appearance: Pours a solid black with a one-finger tan head.

Aroma: Roasted malt, earth, some dark fruit, a little coffee. A little more aggressive than the canned draught variety.

Taste: Follows the nose. A little more booze burn than the canned draught, which is unsurprising, since it has a little more booze.

Mouthfeel: Fuller bodied than the canned draught. There are thicker stouts, but it does have some heft.

Overall: It's almost universally agreed that this is better than Guinness Draught, but I honestly like that one more. This is a bigger stout with more aggressive flavors, but Guinness Draught is what I think of when I want a Guinness - and when I want to make a black & tan or make a stout cake or do any of the other great things you can do with this beloved beer. All that aside, Guinness Extra is fine, it just doesn't make me forget all the other great stouts in the world.

This is a good looking stout. Deep black.

But lets be honest it doesn't taste very good.

Soil, mushroom, burnt coffee. Long bitter finish.
