What can be said about this that hasnít already been said. One of my favorite all around stouts. Not nearly as strong and heavy as the newer craft stouts, but still one of the best.

Czarne piwo z czapą beżowej, gęstej piany. Aromat zdominowany przez nuty palone, przebija się też kawa. Smak lekko palony, wyczuwalna czekolada. Piwo lekko wodniste, ale dzięki temu bardzo pijalne.

Pleasant roasted aroma. Great creamy and extremely durable head. Clear almost black body. Smooth and pleasant roasted bitterness in taste. A little bit watery but still very good.

Dobre piwo. Na początku czuć dużo kwaskowości, a půźniej zostaje mocno, gorzkoawy posmak kawowy. Piana świetna, bardzo gęsta od tego widgeta. nie rewelacyjny, ale dobry dry stout. Za mało alkoholu. Zbyt wytrawne dla mnie(kwaskowe).

FTA. While talking to an Irish guy I found out that I have not ticked this yet. Best one I had was in Southern England. Worst one probably in a pub in Moscow airport. Can is not to my taste. Just a reminder.

On tap. Pours black, with a short light brown head. Aroma of dark malt and dark roasted coffee. Mouth feel is rich, full, creamy and foamy. Body is thin. Tastes slightly sweet, then somewhat bitter, slightly burnt. Flavors of bitter espresso, dark malt, burnt flavors. Iím not a Guinness lover...

10 oz Draft. It poured dark black with a beige head. The aroma was toasted malt with a dry taste with maybe a hit of chocolate. I had better Guinness elsewhere but not in a long time.

On tap, dense black body with light tan, sticky head. Earthy, chocolatey aroma, some metallic undertones were noticeable. Smooth taste of roasted malts. Slight sweetness at the end with a mild bitter finish. Creamy, velvet feel.
