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.
