Finally bought a four pack of this at the local grocery store after eyeing it for the last several trips. I'm not a big fan of the regular strength Guinness that passes for stout here in the U.S., but this is different!
Pours a dark almost jet black with an ample tan head. Aroma is malty sweet with a slight smell of baking bread and licorice. Pretty faint, though.
Mouthfeel is substantially more viscous that regular extra stout.
Taste, sweet at first then blackened malt with a tinge of alcohol at the finish. Very nice.
Hopefully in the future this will replace extra stout on the taps everywhere. Good beer.
