What the label says:

This 8% alcohol by volume stout has been a secret pleasure among beer connoisseurs and indeed our own brewers who value the mouth watering intensity of its roasted malt, smoked wood and dark chocolate notes, not to mention its excellent and seeming endless finish.  Since 1944 we have been exclusively exporting this same special from Ireland into Belgium through the vibrant post of Antwerp.

What the Beerdrinker says:

A jet black beer that retains its head to the bottom of the glass.  It has a strong chocolate and malt nose which carries through into the mouth.  It is thick and smooth with a smoky, peaty tang and is rum like.  It has a bitter chocolate finish.  The Beerdrinker believes that this is the famous Guinness Special Export rebranded for the UK market.
