Senka (922) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 8, 2015
33cl. Brewed in Belgium. Just an average schwarzbier. Nothing impressive or worth to describe. Had it several times in the last 10 years. I always wonder how I stumble on to this one.

Floodom (34) - POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Piwo niemal czarne, z drobnopęcherzykową beżową pianą. Aromat palony, lekko wyczuwalna kawa. Smak bardziej intensywny, palony, wyraźna kawa. Goryczka niska, nasycenie średnie. Przyzwoity stout.

MarkoNm (1744) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours a dark almost completely black, topped with a decent beige colored head. Moderate roasted malt aroma, some coffee present. Taste starts a bit sweet and roasty, some bitterness and coffee wit ha bit of soury feel in the finish. Perfectly nice - a classic.

ClubGonzo (4756) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is licorice, mild coffee, brown bread, leather and hints of grains and nuts. Taste is brown bread, chocolate, mild coffee and hints of nuts and biscuits. Light body, medium to soft carbonation. Quite nice, and much tastier than the regular version - somewhat surprising, considering the apparently small differences between them.

Maakun (1641) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Almost black with small beige head. Lots of roasted malts, licorice, rubber, dried apple, some ash, light herbs, herval tea and green vegetables. Barely any sweetness with light to medium roasted bitterness. Light to medium bodied.

Vighals (2071) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2015
Svart med høyt lys brunt skum. Lukter kokte grønnsaker, sjokolade og kakao. Lett. Fløteaktig, noe røkt. Litt salt, svært lett bitter.

portki (18) - POLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Niestety dla mnie to spore rozczarowanie. Domyślałem się, że Guinness może być lekko średni, by był dla każdego, jednak jest zbyt wodnisty, mało intensywny, rozwodniony. Już aromat na starcie nie zachwyca, jest lekka kawa zbożowa i to by było na tyle. W smaku podobnie, jest co prawda dość gładkie, ale nie zachwyca. Mimo wszystko świetnie się prezentuje wizualnie. Jednak dla mnie to spore rozczarowanie.

suurjuust (1882) - ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2015
33cl bottle as Guinness Original
Black beer, brown head. Bready, malty nose with some roast and licorice, smoke. Taste is pretty close to the nose, but with more bready malts and roast. Simple, but decent.

Bubeer (127) - - JUL 1, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2015 Seemingly inscrutable black but actually brown against the light. Medium head with low retention. Almonds, bread and toast in the nose. Toast predominates in the taste.
