Achel (175) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt, nuts, and some dust. The flavor is slightly acidic from the hard roasted malt, but also with light notes of nuts, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Versa di color nero opaco con riflessi rossi. Schiuma beige altra tre dita,media persistenza. Aroma metallico,quasi dolce e cerealicolo.Corposità media,in bocca arrosto,malto e luppolo. Finale equilibrato di amarezza e molto secco. Gradevole. Ma tutto sommato nella media.

jamaty (1237) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Negra opaca. Tres dedos de espuma beige, poco consistente. Aroma tostado, notas de café. Floja de cuerpo. Sabor a malta tostada. Pese a la fama de la marca, esta versión resulta aburrida.

Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle, 4.1%, bought in Real, Flensburg, the barcode matching this beer, not the Draught. Pours hazy dark brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of caramel and raisins and mild, roasty touches. Bitter and roasty flavour, with mild, sweetish notes of mat and yeast. Dry, roasty end slightly estery aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Agreeable.

KW92 (518) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemno brunatna z rubinowymi refleksami, nieprzejrzyste. Piana mydlana, krótka, po chwili znika znika
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Przypomina dość mocno posłodzoną kawę zbożową.
SMAK: Słodkie lekko palone, zbożowe. Ziemisty posmak. Goryczka średnia.
OGÓLNIE: Nie liczyłem na wiele, a to na co liczyłem otrzymałem.

kerenmk (3235) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Black with a tan head. heavily roasted a little medicinal and then some cocoa in the nose, also some fruit - ripe brown pear perhaps? Tastes bitter a little alcoholic with notes of roastiness. Full body, quite heavily carbonated, dry and roasty finish with a little bit more alcohol. Drinkable and better than the draught version we get here.

Gorgosh (320) - - MAY 22, 2015
Jag antar att det här är påväg att bli en skändning av en helgedom. Ett stöveltramp rakt ner i det allra heligaste. För här finns nämligen inget som bär upp Guinness rykte och ära som världens mest kända, och svårdruckna, ölmärke. Förväntningarna dödar upplevelsen, det är det här ölets största problem.

sonotono (113) - torino, ITALY - MAY 15, 2015
Colore marrone scurissimo/nero, schiuma marroncina. Odore tostato, terroso. Sapori tostato, orzo tostato, caffè, terroso, leggermente allappante. L’amaro è dato più dal tostato che dal luppolo, anche il retrogusto.

Couleur brun foncé; petite mousse beige; arômes et goût maltés, grillés, café; plus légère que la "draught"; finale moyennement amère
