3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from nitro-can into standard pint glass. Poured a very dark reddish-brown color with some chill haze and thick, creamy beige head, somewhat lasting with lace. Aromas of grain, bread, roasted barley and some fruity ale yeast esters. Flavors of fresh black bread, toast, black coffee and dark chocolate, a little caramel, nuts, molasses, some apricots, plums and sour cherries. Medium body. Round, roasty mouthfeel. Dry but not harsh or astringent. Very smooth, fruity aftertaste. Delicious.

Comparable to Guinness. Had this in Dublin. Smooth , creamy and easy to drink. No carbonation. Mild and dark with a burnt hoppy taste . Good stuff.

Schöne Krone. Das wars dann auch von meiner Seite. Wenn ich Kaffee will kauf ich mir auch Kaffee, wenn ich Bier kauf will ich auch Bier bekommen. Hat mich nicht so wirklich überzeugt, dieses ’Bier’. Wobei: Für Kaffee isses dann doch etwas zu wässrig...

This beer is always compared to Guinness, they are very similar. Both commercial stout beers, both are excellent. Dark creamy head, little as far as aroma, maybe slight coffee smell, malt flavor, decent hops taste and bitter finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can w/ glass. December 2005. Amazing head (no bubbles, just creamy head in which you can deep a spoon and it tastes delicious), near white, very smooth and body is very black. The release of carbonation is very distinct. Smell: not much smell to it except a slight burnt. Taste: Initial taste very burnt, little hoppy, not carbonated. Definitely more of a burnt barley/malt taste than any nuts or coffee beans. Then exhale through nose produces some more nutty flavor along with the burnt taste. Body: watery; very smooth, well balanced. As you drink down to the bottom of the glass, the creamy head mixes more with the body, producing a creamier, more nutty taste. Great aftertaste - very creamy, little nutty, though mostly creamy. Overall: Somewhat disappointed, The nose and upfront taste isn’t nearly as good as Anchor’s Porter, Three Floyd’s Robert the Bruce, Bell’s Oberon 7000th Batch. But Beamish is much more drinkable than the latter two, though Anchor’s Porter might be better. Great session brew.

draught can. Pitch black with a nice irish stout can. Very comparable to guinness. It is a little more bitter, but still very smooth and drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin stout flavor, roasted malt flavor that is a little more robust than regular Guiness, a decent example of an Irish Dry Stout.
