esox (1189) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2009
Bottled. Very dark ruby coloured beer with a huge rocky head. The nose is quite faint. It has sweetish maltiness, some roastedness, a hint of hops and tar. Aromas are bread-like toasted dark malts and light hops in the finish with sof coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor is dryish malty and quite roasted. The finish is bitterish and burned, that is almost solventy combination. The palate is soft and quite creamy, but a bit thin.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 22, 2009
Könnyen iható stout a bajor tisztasági törvények betartásával.Nincs annyira karalteres mint a draught,viszont nagyon itatja magát.Társasági,kártyás sör.

BelgianBeerGal (3386) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Draught in anyone of the multitude of "Irish Pubs" on the continent. Still a classic even after tampering with the recipe. Just enough bitterness and chocolate to make it interesting. Still looks and smells like Guiness.

330ml bottle. Light brown head, black colour. Burnt malts aroma, chocolate, coffee. More acidic than draught. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate. A little bit bland. User friendly stout I would say.
