Es una cerveza muy densa. Creo que es de las que tiene la espuma más densa y persistente. Con sabores a café y regaliz.

Tap. Got to drink this in Cork before production moved. Good and dark like a stout should be. Bitter, and a bit on the dryer side. Not as smooth as Guinness but a good, solid stout.

Kita (1030) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 24, 2012
Nitro can, 0.5l. Dark brown color with thick creamy brownish head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, chocolate, grassy hops and some smoke. Taste start with refreshing chocolate note and followed by strong roasted coffee and light smokey notes. Aftertaste is medium bitter and strong roasted. Medium body, creamy texture and almost flat carbonation in palate. Waiting to try draught version, which must be even better...

This is one of my favorite beers. I am really sad that it is no longer being exported to the States.

On Draft @ Old Oak, Cork. Smooth, with Toast and low roasty aromas. Not so bad. Better than Guinnes

Served on tap at Murphy’s Bar, High Street Galway, Eire into a Beamish pint glass - Jan ’12. Dark black with a finger of off-white head. Nice aroma from this stout, roasted malt and a fair dose of coffee, packs a punch to the nose when contrasted with Guinness! Good rich roasted malt taste a little smokey perhaps and still that hint of coffee coming over and throw in a little chocolate. Thinnish in body, creamy in the mouth, went down well. In summary this was the first time I’d had a pint of Beamish for some 15 years or so and I quite enjoyed it This was partly due to a succession of ’ok’ pints of it’s blander cousin Guinness, but next time in the ’old country’ I will definetly seek Beamish out again!

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 27, 2012
On tap in Dublin. Not a really good stout for me. Taste too strong. for classic Irish stout, I prefer a lot more Guinness, murphys,... Personnaly I avoid it.

Can- It is toasty with buttery, creamy and peppery notes in a late, lingering dry finish.

Pours nearly black with a long lasting small bubble tan head. Very smooth with a little more do iciness than a Guinness.
