look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Dark tanish black with a killer 2 inch foamy, creamy head with tons of lacing.
Smell - Roasted malts, sweet dark fruits, plum, rasin, some brown sugar and mollasses. Some chocolate and caramel.
Taste - Sweet fruits mixed with roasted malts start this off. Caramel and added sugars give it a nice balance between the roasty malts. Some hops add a little tropical flavor, and alcohol warmth is present. Clear at the finish i get the classic guinness dry stout slavor.
Mouthfeel - The tounge really gets alot of the sugars, caramel malts and hops. The palate gets more malts, and a little dry malt flavor along with some alcohol. Aftertaste is sweet and dry.
Overall - Really nice beer. Far superior to regular guinness. Has alot of flavor, balance and easy to enjoy. This is awhole different beer then guinness draught but still has the flavor and feel. Nice, glad it came to the states, worth a try.

Totally black with great beige rocky head that dissipates but leaves good lacing. Aroma is of bitter coffee and roasted malt. Tastes of burnt flavours and coffee. Highly bitter for a stout with a long bitter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, somewhat milky with moderate carbonation.
Overall,an excellent foreign extra stout. Very bitter with tons of burnt flavour and a lasting finish. Satisfying and enjoyable every time. Bigger than a standard stout but without the hugeness of an imperial stout.
My mark out of 100 would be 93.
