Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a black body, with a light brown head that diminishes after a few minutes, leaving a good lace. Malty and caramel aroma(a little faint though). Very nice bitterness in taste, along with notes of coffee. Oily texture, thin to medium body, Medium carbonation level - would’ve preffered it a little softer - , overall, it’s a beer that a liked, but it could be better. Prefer the draught version.

Black colour with an off white head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt, coffee and licorice flavour. A bit thinner body than the draft version. Anyway a fine stout even when the sun shines.

Your have to like irish/british stout to enjoy guinness! Because guinness is the king of all stouts. And it brings the genuine irish pub feeling directly to your home!! That dark colour, the golden Georg and the burnt flavour - splendid.

330ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with a large head. Aroma is watery Ribena berries. Taste is mostly roast. A bit one sided, nothing special.

kevnic2008 (11414) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2012
Dark pour, one finger head and outstanding lacing. Moderate to high sweetness, not a lot of bitterness. Enjoyable, but not fantastic.

Dark black color with fluffy tan head. It has roasted malt smell with bittersweet chocolate. Taste is of roasted malt, bread and caramel. Finish is sharp and toasty. It has medium body with medium carbonation with no alcohol warmth. Excellent Irish stout. I love it!
