UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Great feeling to open the can and to fill the glass with that creamy, smokey black beer. Aroma from chocolate, coffee and caramel. Very soft carbonation makes it a great beer which I really enjoyed drinking. I?ll have another one for sure!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière noire de 4.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col épais, laiteux et très joli au versement. Elle possède un aspect de bière « flat » et aussi un goût de métal. Elle possède un nez sucré et amer simultanément. On sent même un aspect de torréfaction. Le goût est intriguant, légère amertume en finale. Bonne bière à déguster, mais pas rafraîchissante. Une bonne bière « sociale ».

It’s the good stuff . as close as you;ll get too extra cold which is about the best you will get outside of Dublin.
I always put it in the freezer for about 75 minutes as it has to be perfect temperature to remove the slight bitterness . When served at correct temperature it is like liquid gold , just a joy to pour and then watch it settle ,
And it tastes as good as you can get although for some reason I cannot explain the second can always tastes better , not an alchoholic thing but a science thing I reckon .
I was brought up on Guinness and to me drinking this is as good as it gets .

Drink cold (8°C)
Eye: very creamy, buttery beer in its consistence, pours a deep black colour with the nicest and thick beige head-
Nose: coffee, roasted malts and smoke
Mouth: dark coffee, roasted malts, buttery but i don’t really taste the chocolate..
Palate: a bit thin, not so long finish (disadvantage of this beer)
Overall: nice stout, which is available almost everywhere, certainly in every irish pub, can’t drink more than two pints in one evening.

This beer has a delicious aroma of roasted malts. The beer is a pretty chocolate color with a creamy, well retained head despite its low level of carbonation. The palate is medium bodied and the taste is rather bland, mostly roast malt with the bittering buried deep. Drinkable but I have never understood the obsession with this brew.

Guinness, always a go to and will forever hold a spot in my fridge. This beer tops my list of readily available beers!
The aroma of this beer in my opinion is one of the only downfalls. Notes of chocolate and coffee are present however they are very mild.
If any beer were to look sexy Guinness would be the one! Pitch black with a thick creamy khaki head. Lacing seems to hug the inside edge of the glass for the duration of the session.
The taste of this beer is smooth, thick, and creamy. chocolate and coffee are still subtle but compliment each other well. A slight hoppy after taste is present
Overall this well know beer will always be a go to. This beer truly was my training wheels into the beer culture.

Small draft at la central de Cambrils. Pitch black with foamy head. The toast is dark, smoky, creamy. Very soft palate. Apart no carbonizations Even more since the foam does not dissipate. A good beer actually
