Ruby-tinted black with a couple fingers of very light tan head. Decent lacing.

Dry roasted malts in the nose with a hint of chocolate and a slight sour twang. The taste follows almost to a "T," with just a little cream added.

Pretty thick bodied with a touch of creaminess to the feel as well. A nice, dry, roasty stout overall with a fun little twang to it.

Smoky and roasted malts almost to the point of burning them. Better as an Irish car bomb or mixer then by itself.

Taste rating in words: it's salad without the dressing.

From the bottle from the "200 years of Stout in the United States" carton, this stout pours a very dark brown with a light tan head. The head diminishes to a ring and a continent in the middle. Some roast malt in the nose and the mouth gets some light burnt malt flavors. Easy drinking!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Part of Guinness's 200 years of stout offering. Beautiful beer with blackish body nice beige head and great lacing. Smokey, burnt toast smell. Earthy, smokey taste with a fairly light body. I look forward to drinking the other two that were in the box.

Deep dark brown into black and opaque. Tall, tan and frothy head. Not persisting. Spare lacing. Medium-low aroma of coffee, bit of dark chocolate. Low bitterness, roasted grain, low malty sweetness, some sweet caramel flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation, some creaminess. Smooth. Bitter-sweet finish, chocolate grittiness. Medium lasting.

Could be better. More dry. In this one lacks of bitterness

From Hipercor. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Watery coffee roastyness, but much better than the draught version, this isnt disgusting, just a bit flat and much below their special expor

Imbibed American style, cold, it's awful. Consumed at slightly cooler than room temp it's excellent! Great taste, a beer you can chew, heady aroma, and a not unpleasant lingering afterwards. Gotta be in my top 10.
