Mijn lievelings stout. Een volle smaak, rokerig. Van een pint kan ik heel lang van genieten.

W zapachu lekka paloność pomieszana z zapachem lagera. W smaku poprawne, żaden smak nie wybija się zbytnio. Ogólnie plus ale bez fanfar.

No me termina de convencer esta cerveza. Esperaba bastante más. La espuma desaparece a los pocos segundos, cosa que no me gusta nada.

Beer is rich dark brown. Tantalizing aroma of beer is filled with tones of hops. The taste of beer is revealed bright tones of roasted barley grain and firm bitterness. The finish is powerful, dry, with a touch of roasted malt.

Wygląd: Bardzo ciemne, piana szybko opada. Zapach: Paloność, nic specjalnego. Smak: Słodowy, nuty kawowe. Ogólnie: Pod każdym względem piwo to wydaje się być trunkiem drugiej kategorii.

Flaske 0,33 l fra Systembolaget Sverige. Sort med Lys beige skum. Lukt av mřrk sjokolade, litt třrr i lukta. Smak av sjokolade litt sřt, en aning for mye kullsyre for en stout. Mild

kajser27 (866) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 14, 2015
Pitch black almost opaque, strong and lasting dark tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is of brown sugar, chocolate and overroasted malt, charcoal. Taste is low sweet caramel, brown sugar, bit of choco, some dark fruits and mostly roasted malts with a very dry charcoal bitter finish. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. I actually prefer the Kenyan version how ever small the differences. (bottle, Belgium)

Color is black, opaque with dark red hues. Head is medium light brown that dissipates. Aroma is bread, sweet malt, caramel, malty in general but not anything special. Taste follows the aroma, sweet malty, some roasted malts here too, some chocolate also. Aftertaste comes with some light roastiness and malty sweetness, that doesn’t last long. Low carbonation, medium body. Not complex at all and it sadly based on only marketing, I don’t think I’ll finish the bottle...

Black beer with beige head. Leaves good lacing on the glass. The aroma is dominated by notes of chocolate and cereals. Light to medium bitterness. Medium body, moderate sweetness, a little bit of sourness.

From Carrefour. In Ikea’s english pint glass. Watching Breaking Bad 4x12.More drinkable than the draught version: I could finish this one without too much disgust
