Turtles (1664) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Near black, big creamy tan head, good lacing. Roasted aroma, leather, chocolate and coffee. Medium carbonated, thin dry mouthfeel. Gentle roasted taste, chalky and dry, cocoa and chocolate. Easy to drink without real depth.

SkillsFactory (511) - ITALY - JUN 26, 2016
Marrone scura, schiuma nocciola chiara di buona persistenza. Sembra assurdo ma l'aroma ricorda prevalentemente le olive nere, in aggiunta liquirizia e malto tostato. Al palato sempre olive nere, liquirizia, malto d'orzo, finale tostato con note di caffè ed un vago ricordo di frutti rossi. Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata.

Bottle. Black body with brown head. Aroma is roasted malts slight sourness and hints of cocoa. Taste is nearly the same but with more sourness. Aftertaste is slightly sour with roasted malts

lello4ever (564) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2016
Stout con aroma mediocre e anche al palato č pessima, tostatura quasi assente. Male

GoddamnNoise (16) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2016
Aroma: toasty, roasted malts, light caramel. No hints of hops. Slight alcohol aroma. Very light coffee aromas. Light licorice. Appearance: totally black color, medium head, low retention. Head of brown color leaving laces. Taste: light sweet, with a medium bitter finish. Roasted and toasted flavors. Licorice. Palate: light to medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium long bitter finish. Overall: Not a memorable beer. Not the best of the Guinnes beers either. Not well balanced. Very light sweet against too much bitter finish. Toasted and roasted malts flavors are ok.

pioter (76) - POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Piana do obfita karmelowa, doc szybko znikająca bo grube pęcherzyki ma. Koror piwa czarny. W aromacie niestety stare masło, troche DMS i gdzie na dnie palone słody. Dosc wysokie nasycenie, praktycznie przegazowane jak na stouta. W smaku do intensywna kawa. Goryczka słaba.

Michcio (431) - Gdansk, POLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Barwa niemal czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana beżowa, umiarkowanie obfita i umiarkowanie trwała. W aromacie kawa, nieco czekolady, paloność. W smaku dość wytrawne, palone, kawowe, nieco karmelowej słodyczy, z goryczkowym finiszem, na poziomie średnim, wysycenie niskie, delikatnie w stronę średniego, treściwość średnioniska, kremowo-palony posmak. Guinness to Guinness, wszystko tak jak być powinno, chociaż nie zachwyca jakoś szczególnie.

Po prostu klasyk. Mała butelka 330 ml. Bardzo dobrze uwarzone piwo, piana bardzo gęsta z drobnych bąbelków. Barwa brunatno-czarna. Hehe, piana w kolorze etykiety, piwo w kolorze butelki Czuje się i smakuje palone słody, także z lekka czekoladę.

jakubwloszcz (111) - Piastów, POLAND - APR 22, 2016
Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Beżowa, obfita piana, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat mało intensywny, głównie czuć palone słody, w tle kawa zbożowa, czekolada. W smaku jest lekko kwaskowe, wodniste, dominują nuty słodowe i kawowe. Wysycenie jest dość wysokie, a goryczka niska.
