Bottle shared with McTapps. A bit watery but still coffe-like. Too much carbo but enjoable and recommendable.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Quite airy texture of foam, not as creamy as known. Typical taste of coffee with a gentle bitterness, but all together very smoothy.

33 cl. bottle from Systembolaget, Luleå, 27.7.2012. Black with a massive, creamy beige head. Aroma with dark roasted malts, whisky, tar, coffee and a sweetness from dark, candid sugar. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with sticky texture. Finishes with lots of roasted malts, coffee and a hint of ash. A classic stout.

Bottle.Tried during our holiday in Croatia August 2012. Not as bitter as the versions i have tried in the uk. Much smoother but still with that unique Guinness flavour. Very easy to drink on a delicious warm evening. One I will remember.

Almost black with a large slightly tan head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, ash, malt and some coffee. Rather bitter finish. Thin and not that exciting.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Dark brown with a lasting brown lacy head. Smells of roasted chocolate malt with sugar, nut and smoked malt. Medium Frothy body. Taste of roasted grain almost burnt, nut and a dry bitter roast finish. Some elements of fruitiness like blackberry. I like the dryness.

There’s a medium amount of foam. Pours nicely, the looks are dark brown. Beige foam that stays only a couple of minutes. Medium roasted malts, very dry taste. Some bitterness. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. The finish is drastically longer than with basic Guinness, I like this much more.

Pours pitch black with a creamy tanned head. Mildly sour aroma with hints of roasted coffee and chocolate. Aroma too low. OK, but nothing more.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
smells like a dark burnt piece of bread fresh from the oven with hints of coffee and chocolate. creamy yet fizzy thick foam with a beige color. black color, perhaps signs of dark red. simple and clean taste of burnt bread with no tangy aftertaste and a balanced bitterness. a good example of a good macro beer that doesn’t try to pad their beers with obscure flavors. overall a great stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Denso color nero con deboli riflessi rossastri in controluce, spesso cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma caffettoso con note di cappuccino, cereali e malti abbrustoliti; gusto mediamente amaro con un finale lungo e asciutto che richiama gli aromi. Effervescenza gentile, corpo medio, struttura oleoso-cremosa... un piacevole classico!
