wimpyjoe (3715) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Black with a thick frothy head. Has a mild roast character and is easy to drink.

Tap at some rough joint near the stadium. Pretty much liquorice in a blender. Damn aniseedy. Not too shabby

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 17, 2013
Can from Tesco Longford [170813] (Served warm...not ideal)
Dark brown, ruby edges, dense tan head
Aroma - Dark caramel, dab of chocolate, soft roasted malt
Taste - Dry roasted malts, some burnt toast, some dark slight sweet dark caramel malts to offset the roast a bit, slightly fruity
Palate - Soft carb, thinnish body. Finish - rather dry, bitter roast finish, dab of coffee grounds, burnt bitter linger
Overall - More bitter roast in the finish than Guinness, rougher roast ...will re-rate on tap as the can probably doesn’t do it justice...

How did Guinness become so popular, when this is clearly better. Looks the same, but has more flavour, some nice sweetness to go with roasty bitterness. Nice beer.

Sunlander (11) - SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2013
Svart och fin med gräddigt lattefärgat skum. Lite vattning med en lätt metallisk smak. Svag smak av kaffe. En lite lättare stout än sin storebror Guinness.

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
På fat. I det närmaste helt svart med det där fantastiska smutsvita, mjölkiga skummet som endast en perfekt upphälld stout har. Så nära perfektion man kan komma. Dofter och smaker av karamell, choklad, kaffe och honung. Gräddig och len munkänsla.

I have not been able to find this beer for quite some time, but it is great. I did a blind tasting at a pub in Ireland between the three and Beamish came out on top. It has a little more roast than Guinness but is just as smooth. I love it!

DrStrangelove (75) - ITALY - JUN 29, 2013
Draught @ Rose&Crown. Dark color with a very dense, creamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Very smooth and creamy in the mouth. Not too watery. Ends with a mild dry bitterness. Very pleasant, one of my favorite stouts.

fiammanghilla (529) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 17, 2013
Spina @ Rose & Crown. Scura che in controluce fa vedere riflessi rubino, schiuma marroncina finissima e pannosa. Tostatura leggera, molto bevibile.
