Pinte, Boul Noire. Pas aimé beaucoup. J'avais hâte de finir ma pinte. Un arrière goût qui ne me plaisait pas.

A classic! Deep, rich brown/ almost pitch black* pour (*actual color is amber according to their website but I can only vaguely distinguish that during the long pour) with a huge foamy tan head which Guinness is so well known for. Flavour of roasted malts, barley, chocolate, coffee etc. Canít go wrong with this! Iíd also like to make a note that this draught has a very very low carbonation level - and thus I can down a pint of it in 5 seconds flat. Cheers!

Pours jet black with fading tan head. Been years since Iíve had this beer. Better than I remember. Still more of a fan of the extra stout but good beer

Aromat slodowy, lekko chmielowy, przewazaja nuty palone, karmelowe. Wyglad nienaganny, gleboka czern z rubinowymi refleksami, piana niska ale drobnopecherzykowa typowo azotowa, utrzymuje sie do konca picia. Piwo dosyc wytrawne, dobrej jakosci. W kategorii koncerniakow sam top.

Barwa czarna pod światło ciemno wiśniowe refleksy. Piana niesamowicie drobna gęsta i treściwa. Piana bardzo dokładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat mocno palony może nawet trochę wędzony. Praktycznie nie czuć wysycenia przez co piwo jest niesamowicie aksamitne w odczuciu. No i smak. Palone słody mieszają się z minimalną goryczką oraz mocną stout-ową kwasowością. Pozostawia po chwili taką ciekawą smakową pustkę, ale bardzo pasująca do tego piwa.

330ml bottle. Like most people Iíve had this many times over the years including the Guinness factory where I would hope it was served in perfect condition. This rating is from a bottle at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Pours deep black with cream head, smokey / burnt malt aroma. Lots of bitter roasted flavours, coffee, burnt notes, full bodied with a certain degree of creaminess and a dry finish. Not my favourite beer by a long stretch but an admirable beer all the same.

Tap at Dublin airport, very faint roast coffee nose, creamy smooth and roasty, cold, light burnt bitterness plus a faint sweetness in the finish.

Itís ok. For a stout - just ok. Itís like a good start for drinking stouts. It wonít strike you down by aroma neither by taste. Itís very calm in every way.
