Beer Review: Tease (part 1 of 2).

I felt bad about not having time to write up a review tonight, so instead I'm leaving you all with a sneak peak of what's to come tomorrow... If you can guess what it is, I shall even let you decide what will be the next beer I review.

Here are your hints dearest readers:

Strong Ale

Think you can figure out what it is? Post in the comments and see if you get it right (no cheating).

Beer Review: Guinness Extra Stout (Ireland)

Lucky for you guys! After my roommate drank all of my beer yesterday, I realized I did have a special bottle left in the basement. Today I'll be reviewing Guinness Extra Stout, imported from the Netherlands.

Looks: Deep black with a big frothy brown/beige head.
Smells: Lots of roasted malt, licorice, coffee.
Tastes: Coffee and roasted malt, light tastes of dark chocolate. Long bitter finish.

Looks: 4/5 - Pretty good looking, but the line between the body and head is nice quite as defined as a normal Guinness.
Smells: 4/5 - Very heavy on the roasted malt for the nose, making it quite hard to detect the other aromas
Tastes: 7.5/10 - Quite refreshing, a nice variation from a regular Guinness.
Overall: 14.5/20 - Pretty good beer, give it a try if you like Guinness. Personally I find it a little bit less good than its counterpart, however still fun to have one every once in a while.

No Post: Or is it really?

Yeah it really is a no post. You can thank my roommate for this one, as while I was away to work, he and his buddies drank all the beer I had in the fridge... No beer in fridge = No review! (also means I need to go pickup more tomorrow, as he drank 3 of the bottles I had planned on reviewing this week...)

I shall see you all tomorrow with a new review for you all.
