esta es una de mis preferidas, una cerveza oscura intensa que desde que se sirve en el vaso se empieza a apreciar con aroma, color y calidad - guttes bierre!

Classic. Lacks body, tastes burnt, has no aroma, but looks great just after pouring.

Hubster (14) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
En god, men mild aroma af malt og ristet malt. Den dufter af irsk pub. Træ, pibetobak, kaffe, mørk chokolade. Et vedvarende helt cremet skum. Og næsten ingen kulsyre, faktisk en doven øl. Måske er det den manglende kulsyre der gør at man også kan smage alkoholen, som eller kun er på 4,1%

BOSSbrewer (2075) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Had this in a can and on tap at various places. Pours dark brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma is slight roast, some dark chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Milter (84) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 Puszka 440ml. Piwo o bardzo ładnej, czarnej barwie. Widoczne rubinowe przebłyski. Piękna, drobnopęcherzykowa, biała piana, wspaniale zdobiąca szkło. Aromat to delikatna paloność i czekolada. Przyjemny. Niskie nasycenie. Jedno z najbardziej pijalnych piw na świecie. W smaku bardzo gładki. Paloność świetnie uzupełnia delikatną goryczkę. Czekolada bardzo przyjemnie łączy się z kwaskowatością. W smaku jest dosyć wytrawne. Świetne piwo.

gorkogrlo (184) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 18, 2015
Can. Pours big, creamy white head. Dark brown almost black color. Looks perfect. Smell of chocolate, roast grains and metal (at lower temperature). Flavor of coffe, roasted grains, and some tobacco notes. Earthy. Watery. In aftertaste classic notes of earthy british hops. Overall: ok beer but overrated.

Yorker (1394) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2015
44 cl can @ home. Pours black with a light tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt and a little coffee - with a slightly dry finish.

Do I need to describe Guinness? Light smoke, plenty of grain, moderate bitterness, earthy, liquorice. Lovely.
