A-totally opaque and dark with fine carbonation. Semipersistant light brown head that leaves film on glass and settles at a nice half finger of quite persistant foam.

S- Sweet malt and some fruity banana. Some alcohol tones with some floral hints in there. Could be a little more vivid. Coffee.

T- Burt. Some alcohol. Big on the hops which are present at the end. Malty. Bitter in the aftertaste, very much so. Alcohol is present in middle. A little coffee. Tastes good. Roasted malt.

M- clean palate with a little staying in the back of the throat.

D- drinkable, I'd take another.

Guinness is Guinness. Had on tap in Brussels at Irish pub. Long story, long night, British tourists...Still one of the best, no matter where it’s consumed.

I really love this beer. This version has quite low percentage of alcohol and it's very aromatic and easy to drink. Dark almost black color and moderate smell. Has a nice creamy head with good retention. Taste is a melange of coffee, toffee roast cereals, very complex and enjoyable. I would recommend it over Guinness Draft.

my extra stout thy lovely bitterness enraptures my tongue. its pure bittersweet, in stinging harmony with my senses.
I'd have three more to assist in denying your perfect irony, but since i only have the sole, i will meditate on it while it lasts...

Guinness Extra Stout, bought in Germany, clocks 4.1% abv.

Looks like Guinness: very dark brown. Head is fluffy, lacing is good.
Smell is rather fresh. Malts, roasted coffee and nuts. Also a bit fruity, and hops as well.

Equal taste, but sweeter than other Guinness.

Mouthfeel is rather thin. It's got good carbonation.
Very easy drinkable in sessions, on warmer days. Alcohol is easy.

Look: Light pour with big, puffy, thick (small bubbles), gorgeous, mocha head. Has nice, slow retention. Creamy, thick layer stays on top, leaves lots of random sticky lacing. Clear dark brown with red amber hue.

Smell: Fresh, lightly roasted, chocolate, grainy (cereal). Also some oatmeal, a bit dusty and mineral. Good malt base with herbal hops to complete it.

Taste: Stars with light roast (with some milk chocolate) sweetness that goes into light roast to coffee bitterness with hints of herbal hops. Despite being light, the bitterness is a bit exaggerated compared to overall taste, which is watered down compared to the smell. Some of the richness from malt is lost here. Also some light acidity with mineral character, which makes it fresher and easier to drink.

Mouthfeel: Light, relatively crisp carbonation for a stout, still light creamy feeling. Dry finish.

Overall: Smell promises more, but the taste is a bit watered down and doesn't deliver. It's ok, easy to drink with some roasted malt character and there are times, when you need exactly this.

Light tan head. Typical Guiness look.

Very similar to the other Guiness beers. Roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, and some nuttiness.

Medium bodied. A lot of carbonation. Ends dry and roasted.

Fun to try this one. Nothing crazy but better than the nitro.
