A: Inky black with that classic rocky tan Guinness head. Retention is excellent and lacing is abundant. Beautiful.
S: Coffee, roast, chocolate, and warm alcohol. There seems to be some acidic sour undertone here that is very nice. Hops aren't too abundant in the aroma.
T: Lots of bitter coffee and dark chocolate up front. I'm getting some hops (mostly bitterness) in the taste. That lovely acidic twang is apparent in here as well. Warming alcohol comes through as it warms.
M: Silky smooth and moderately carbed. Wonderful.
This is one of the best stouts I've ever had. It blows Guinness Extra Stout out of the water. This is going to become a regular in my fridge for sure.

This is my first foreign/export stout, so here goes:
Into a nonic:
A: dark black body with a two and a half finger tan foamy head. The head must have lasted at least a good three minutes. What a show I had just watching the intricate bubbles pop out from the sides of the glass into the head while a light foamy lacing appeared as the head dissipated.
S: great combination between the chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and barley.
T: all of the previously mentioned smells in the flavoring combined very nicely.
M: medium with a slight watery feel. It still felt pretty good on the tongue.
O: I'm pretty much blown away because I didn't think this was going to be this good. This is quite impressive, however, I still feel as each new style presents itself to me that I need to have others just so I can compare.

Appearance - Dark Opaque Black with a very dark brown head. I'm also seeing a good amount of lacing along the sides.
Smell - Chocolate/Cocoa, Coffee, Roasted Malts, & Barley. It's been a couple of years since I had an actual Guinness, but this smells alot maltier than before
Taste - Yeasts, Chocolate, Mocha, Malts, Barley and some faint hops. Each flavor is surprisingly rich and complimentary to each other. I'm not sure if it's the fact I'm drinking from a glass this time around but this is pretty tasty!
Mouthfeel - Light bodied and light in carbonation, totally not what I was expecting considering the beer style. It does, however, make this very easy to drink.
Overall - I enjoyed this quite a bit! I was surprised that such a world renowned beer brand could deliver such a tasty and well balanced beer. Definitely wouldn't mind having this again

Beers pours a mysterious jet black with a nice off brown head.
Aroma is complex, burnt toast ad sugar, chocolate, coffee, very nice.
The beer tastes of roasted, more burnt sugar, and some alcohol at the finish.
Excellent creamy full mouthfeel.
Overall this is the perfect example of a stout. It just goes above and beyond in every catagory and really is a treat to drink. It is refreshing and warming at the same time if that is at all possible.
