fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2012
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.

Black with creamy white head. Roast, milk chocolate and coffee. Smooth, floral, nutty, ashtray and light acidic finish. Overall: good. Is this Guinness?

kapusil (1023) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 7, 2015
0.5l can. Black body, creamy and long lasting beige head after the cascade effect. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and berries. Taste of coffee, chocolate, cherries and berries with a bit of floral hop bitterness. Light-medium bodied, creamy texture. Very nice.

TorbenJensen (1414) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
Dense and creamy foam. The aroma is well hidden under the fine foam, but a little hard roasted malt and light notes of licorice can be glimpsed. The taste is initially a little water but with distinct flavor notes of mocha, good English licorice and a comfortable hop bitterness. Dry aftertaste. Incredibly delicious stout.

Ottima stout, con sapore molto corposo. E’ molto piacevol da bere data anche la sua cremosità.
