Burk systembolaget. Svart kulör med beiget krämigt skum. Lätt rostad doft med kaffe och lite rökt korv. Maltig smak med lakrits och kavring. Aningen vattnig munkänsla. Svagt kolsyrad och lätt beska

SkillsFactory (96) - ITALY - APR 8, 2015
Colore nero impenetrabile, schiuma densa e molto persistente color nocciola. Forte aroma di liquirizia, deboli note di caffè e cacao. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata. Al palato prevale sempre la liquirizia, in un secondo momento si percepisce caffè tostato e cacao, con una nota amaricante sul finale; a tratti lievemente "piccante".

Hard not to love a good ol’ Guinness. There’s a ton of great stouts out there, but its easy to go back to this when I’m at a pub that doesn’t have a wide selection. You can’t go wrong!

Copenhagen 6/4 2015. 44 cl can from Føtex. The black can with the golden harp. Dramatic Sound effect when opening. Pours muddy brown which separates into black beer with dense creamy white head. Aroma is rather weak. A little salty - not much else. Very soft and silky carbonation. Taste is malty with a nice but not very distinct bitterness. Like lukewarm coffee (in a nice way). Fine Irish draught - in a can.

Un incontournable du genre, noire, sombre, une belle mousse blanche compact, un gout de noisette et de céréales. Délicieux.

Avetixz (24) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - APR 5, 2015
Aroma of bread, roasty malt, coffee and cereal. Pours dense dark liquid with a rather small dark white head. The flavour spreads very nicely in the mouth and is mainly coffee with a medium bitterness and some malt. Mouthfeel is rather full with an oily texture and a bitter finish. The coffee taste is surprisingly appealing and I’ve never had a beer that tasted anything like this. Very unique and nice.

04-04-2015 - This is a can with a nice gimmick, but the beer is a good as a real Guinness in Ireland!
