Qué decir. Es la cerveza que nos salvó en Londres y guardo grato recuerdo. Ahora al revisitarla 10 años después me sigue gustando aunque no me parece nada del otro mundo. Es muy bebible y sabrosa.

FinnIckler (99) - GERMANY - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle from a Kiosk in Berlin. Pours pitch black with brown head. Nose is bread and toffee, but not intense . Palate is dry, earthy, tart, but not too bitter. Dry mouthfeel. Finish is short and dark dried fruit. Had the 4.1 abv Version a few months ago. This is slightly better.

The_Osprey (6607) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2016
September 2016 - 330ml bottle picked up in Berlin, as ’Guinness Extra Stout’. The version brewed to German purity laws. Pours opaque black with a red hue, foamy dense tan head. Aroma is toffee, a little farty, some roast and spent coffee grounds. Body is smooth, rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is roasty, some burnt toffee, overcaramelised sugars, light coffee notes. Quite sweet, and never dries out like dry stouts are meant to. Some nice vibes. Teresa thinks it doesn’t taste like Guinness, and I’m inclined to agree. Or at least it doesn’t taste much like a dry stout. Interesting to try this version. (3.3)
