UDBeernut (2140) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2012
nitro bottle into a pint glass. Deep amber with purple on the edges, minimal tan head with little retnetion. Nose is bland, maybe some light roast. Taste is black coffee roastiness with slight very faint flower. A bit of chalk. Mouth is light bodied and deffiantly sessionable. Overall, not completly horrific when confronted with only BMC competitors. Rated via BeerBuddy

440ml can. Aroma is sweet. Pours dark like Coke, minimal head. Taste is soft, woody, slightly coffeeish, sweet aftertaste. Body is quite thin. Overall a classic stout that you could always count on and get from anywhere around the world.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Still an excellent classic dry stout. Creamy as nothing else, black with his spectacular head.

Achel (111) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
A black beer with a beutiful brown creamy head. The aroma is slight - too slight - but with notes of sweetness and roasted malt. The flavor is creamy smooth with a sweet malty start and ending on a slight roasted note, that lingers a little and turns dry. Not a good stout - too thin

On tap at Heart & Crown - Byward Market. Black pour, red hues and a creamy off-white head. Flavors are roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate with a light acidity. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture.

sudomorph (879) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
440ml widget can. Pours a deep ruby/black with a one finger, creamy head that lasts forever and coats the glass. Aroma has notes of caramel, slight roast, and a touch of traditional hops. Taste is balanced but a touch tart with caramel, very slight roast, and not a lot else. Medium body with a low carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall pretty basic. Hints of bread, caramel, roast, and hops.

Espuma linda e consistente. Gosto torrado com aroma de café. Não é do meu paladar mas vale a pena tomar uma durante a noite para intercalar sabores

Moje najlepsze koncernowe piwo na świecie(pomijając belgijskie), jak wchodzę do sklepu i nie ma kraftu biorę Guinnessa. Nie będę opisywał bo prawie każdy zna ten smak, wszystko co powinno mieć w stylu ma,oczywiście idealne nie jest, zawsze można powybrzydzać. Poza tym to mój ulubiony styl, ciężko zliczyć ile warek już smakowałem a mimo to nigdy się nie zawiodłem, z wadą się nie spotkałem. Można brać w ciemno.
